Cheap Trick postpone shows as Rick Nielsen recovers from minor procedure

Cheap Trick has postponed a pair of US dates this week as Rick Nielsen continues to recover from “a minor procedure.”

The Rockford, IL band recently announced Nielsen’s health status and had singer Robin Zander’s son, Robin Taylor Zander, step in to handle guitar duties in his absence this past week for shows in Port Huron, MI and Kalamazoo, MI.

Now, Cheap Trick will reschedule appearances this week in Auburn, WA and Boise, ID to give their guitarist more recovery time, as per his doctor’s orders.

“As we stated last week, Rick has been home recuperating from a minor procedure that kept him off the shows last weekend,” says the group. “While Rick is recovering nicely, he is being advised by his doctor to take a little more time. Rather than perform the shows without Rick, the guys have decided to postpone the shows this weekend and will announce the new dates shortly.”

Cheap Trick are next scheduled to begin a six-city concert series in Japan starting November 24 in Tokyo.

Cheap Trick's latest album is 2021’s “In Another World” – get your copy here.
