VIDEO: Cheap Trick perform on NBC’s Today Show

Cheap Trick performed a pair of tunes on NBC’s Today Show on Thursday ahead of Friday night’s induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

On hand to promote their new album, “Bang Zoom Crazy…Hello”, the group played their latest single “When I Wake Up Tomorrow”, as well as their classic hit “I Want You To Want Me.”

The band's 17th studio album and first in five years was produced by longtime associate Julian Raymond, who has co-written several Cheap Trick tunes in the past.

The Rockford, IL band will enter the Hall during the April 8 ceremony at New York’s Barclays Center alongside Deep Purple, Steve Miller, Chicago and N.W.A.

Guitarist Rick Nielsen recently confirmed the band will reunite with longtime drummer Bun E. Carlos to perform at the event.

Carlos left the touring lineup in 2010, was replaced by Nielsen’s son Daxx, and then found himself suing his own group for monies owed before reaching a settlement last year.
