Taste of Country Concert Series at the Greeley Stampede Presents Cheap Trick w/ Blue Oyster Cult – July 2nd, 2011
The Taste of Country Concert Series at the Greeley Stampede wraps up with Classic rockers Cheap Trick and Blue Oyster Cult on Saturday, July 2. Cheap Trick has toured almost continuously for four decades and still sounds as great as they did in the 1970s. The band cranks out new Power Pop rockers alongside their greatest hits such as “Surrender,” “I Want You to Want Me,” “Dream Police,” and 1980’s power ballad, “The Flame.” Blue Oyster Cult will open the show with such memorable songs from the ‘70s and ‘80s as “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” and “Burnin’ For You.” Concert tickets start at just $22 and will go on-sale Friday, February 4 at 9:00 a.m. at the Greeley Stampede Box Office in Island Grove Regional Park in Greeley. Tickets are also available through TicketsWest at any Colorado King Soopers store, by calling 970-356-7787, or online at GreeleyStampede.org (convenience charges may apply). Looking for a bargain? Concert goers can purchase a K99 Taste of Country Concert Pack for $70 or $85 (depending on seat location) and get tickets to all the great concerts at the Stampede for one low price. This year, concertgoers can enjoy the lowest prices in years for the Greeley Stampede concerts. Get more information at greeleystampede.org.
About The Bands: CHEAP TRICK
CHEAP TRICK may be one of the most covered bands of all time. Since the 70s they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and the late 80s lighter-waving favorite, “The Flame,” CHEAP TRICK are a musical institution. Anyone familiar with Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report will note that CHEAP TRICK wrote and performed the theme song.
With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards, the band was honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences) for their contributions to the music industry. CHEAP TRICK were featured in the John Varvatos Spring 2008 ad campaign.
In September 2009, CHEAP TRICK performed the classic Beatles album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, complete with an orchestra and guest artists Joan Osborne and Ian Ball for nine critically-acclaimed shows in Las Vegas.
Their most current release, The Latest, (released on CD, vinyl and 8-track) has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick’s reign as power-pop progenitors as they celebrate their 35th anniversary together.
