Coming up NXT: Cheap Trick to perform at Hollywood Casino
Best known for timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “The Flame,” Cheap Trick is in the midst of another national tour through the end of October.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers are bringing their unique blend of pop, punk and metal to Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races on Friday, July 26, at 9 p.m.
Herald-Mail Media recently caught up with Rick Nielsen, Cheap Trick’s founding member, main songwriter and guitarist, for an email interview.
Now 70, Nielsen says that he attributes his career longevity to following his heart.
“I’m lucky enough to know that a career choice which many people wish they had, chose me,” Nielsen said.
He also offered some advice.
“Believe in yourself, adapt but don’t give up on what you’re doing, if in your heart it’s real, even when others feel you should,” Nielsen said. Along with Nielsen, Cheap Trick currently consists of Robin Zander (lead vocals), Tom Petersson (bass) and Daxx Nielsen (drums).
