‘ARE YOU READY TO ROCK?’ BLISTERING FOOTAGE OF CHEAP TRICK LIVE IN 1979

‘ARE YOU READY TO ROCK?’ BLISTERING FOOTAGE OF CHEAP TRICK LIVE IN 1979.

This footage of Cheap Trick on Rockpalast in 1979 captures the band at the very top of their game after the face-smashing success of their live album, Cheap Trick at Budokan that finally saw a US release after a frenzy of demand for the record (which was only available in Japan at the time). That album catapulted the band into the stratosphere of rock and roll superstardom. Here they rip through eleven songs with switchblade precision and I don’t know if I’ve ever heard vocalist Robin Zander sound better than he does here.

Setlist:

Hello There
Come On
Stiff Competition
On Top Of The World
Ain’t That A Shame
Need Your Love
I Know What I Want
I Want You To Want Me
Surrender
Good Night
Day Tripper
