Cheap Trick may be one of the most covered bands of all time, with timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and the late ‘80s lighter-waving favorite, “The Flame.” With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards to their credit, they were honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences for their contributions to the music industry. The band’s most current release, The Latest, has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick’s reign as power-pop progenitors as they celebrate their 35th anniversary together.
Starship began as a pioneer of the psychedelic rock movement. They scored two US Top 10 hit singles and a string of Top 20 albums. Two chart hits from the 1967 album Surrealistic Pillow, “Somebody to Love” and “White Rabbit,” are listed in Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.” Starship’s No. 1 hits include “We Built This City,” “Sara” and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now.”
