“We’re going to play sort of like what we had done before, when we’ve played a full album, and then extra tracks,” guitarist Rick Nielsen tells John Katsilometes at the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We’re going to try to do that in Vegas. We can play the first album, the second album, third album and fourth album over a four-night stand.”

Cheap Trick is working around an ever-changing touring schedule, so additional Vegas dates are expected but not yet penciled in. A European tour set for February has been pushed from ‘21 to this year. So has the band’s booking at the Under The Stars festival in Australia. Cheap Trick’s co-headlining tour with ZZ Top in Canada has been moved to this spring. A series with Rod Stewart has been moved to this summer.

“We have so many other shows that that we’ve scheduled and rescheduled, and scheduled, I don’t know exactly what can be worked out,” Nielsen says. "That’s all stuff that is backed up, moving, and has been going on for about two years now. It’s like, I know what year it is, but sometimes I’m not sure (laughs). I just want to get onstage and play. We will make it special, that I can promise.”
