It’s “Cheap Trick Day” in Illinois today. That’s not an April Fool’s joke.

Cheap Trick will be performing live their newest album “Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello” at the Metro in Chicago today.

On April 8th, Cheap Trick will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

State Senator Dave Syverson passed a law in 2007 to dedicate April 1st to the band with Rockford origins.

Cheap Trick has sold 21 million records and holds 40 gold and platinum record awards.
