Rick Nielsen temporarily sidelined from Cheap Trick tour

Guitarist Rick Nielsen has been temporarily sidelined from Cheap Trick’s fall US tour.

“A few days ago, Rick had a minor procedure that requires him to stay off the road for this week and not travel,” shared the group on social media. “Robin Taylor Zander will be stepping up this weekend. We look forward to Rick rejoining the guys on the west coast later next week.”

The band’s upcoming live schedule includes dates in Michigan this weekend ahead of shows in Auburn, WA and Boise, ID late next week, after which they will head to Japan for a six-city concert series.

Robin Taylor Zander – the son of lead singer Robin Zander – has previously filled in on bass, drums and lead guitar for the Rockford, IL band when other members weren't available.

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