Cheap Trick

Price: $65

When: Ended 07/6/13

Where: Minnesota Zoo

Cheap Trick is one of the greatest Midwest rock bands of all time, but in recent years the Rockford, Ill., heroes have been stuck opening for lesser talents here. Twin Cities fans finally won back the “Surrender” rockers as headliners again, and in one of the most fun venues in town. Powerhouse vocalist Robin Zander still has the pipes, guitar Rick Nielsen is still equal parts fireball and cornball, and bassist Tom Peterson is still playing it cool. Nielsen’s son Daxx has very capably and proudly replaced drummer Bun E. Carlos on tour. Chris Riemenschneider
