Cheap Trick has announced plans to open a music venue with museum and eatery on Chicago’s South Side. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the band will use the site of a former auto dealership on south Michigan Avenue. The venue is located near Chess, Vee-Jay and Brunswick Records, hugely popular during the 50’s and 60’s, and where Chuck Berry, the Rolling Stones and many other popular artists have recorded.
Known for popular songs which include “Dream Police”, “Surrender” and “I Want You To Want Me”, Cheap Trick plans to include a radio station, performance space, instrument museum and restaurant at the location, tentatively called Cheap Trick Chicago.
Founded in the early 70’s in Rockford, Illinois. Cheap Trick is known for it’s use and large collection of unusual vintage guitars and basses, so it may come as no surprise to fans that they would enjoy having a place to enjoy and show off many of these wonderful instruments.
