Cheap Trick will rock the Yuletide season with the release of Christmas Christmas, the group’s first ever holiday album, due October 20th via Big Machine Records. Arriving mere months after their critically-acclaimed 18th studio album We’re All Alright!, Cheap Trick co-produced the holiday collection alongside their longtime collaborator, GRAMMY Award winner Julian Raymond (Glen Campbell, Fastball). With Christmas Christmas, Cheap Trick delivers a sleigh full of rock and roll Christmas classics and festive favorites by Wizzard, Slade, Chuck Berry, The Ramones and The Kinks as well as newly penned offerings like the joyous lead track, “Merry Christmas Darlings.”
The group has launched a PledgeMusic campaign for the project. A variety of packages are available featuring a Christmas stocking, pom knit beanie, reversible scarf, Christmas knit sweater, an ornament, signed CD booklets and digital access.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers – whose four decade-plus career has seen them play more than 5,000 shows and counting – remain on the road this fall for a string of U.S. headline dates, long awaited Canadian run as special guests on Nickelback’s Feed The Machine arena tour and a top-billed set at Pembroke Pines, FL’s upcoming Rockfest 80’s on November 4th. Additional dates – including some very special Christmas Christmas concerts – will be announced soon.
Cheap Trick will also be among the icons performing at Rock Getaway 2017, an all-star, all-inclusive weekend event set for the Hard Rock Hotel in Rivera Maya, Mexico October 26th-November 1st. Set to appear on October 29th, Cheap Trick joins a truly extraordinary lineup of legends including Steve Miller Band, Roger Daltrey, Foreigner, Blue Öyster Cult, Bad Company, Los Lobos, and many more. Limited packages are still available at rockgetaway.com.
