Every few months, Orlando radio station WMMO sponsors a free concert in downtown Orlando, and the next one will be Cheap Trick on October 24.
The legendary rockers have been entertaining their legion of fans for over four decades, and show no signs of slowing down.
The band, comprised of Robin Zander (lead vocals), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Tom Petersson (bass), and Bun E. Carlos (drums), first formed in the early 70s in Rockford, Illinois. Their biggest hits since then include “Surrender”, “I Want You to Want Me”, “Dream Police” and “The Flame,” and their live album Cheap Trick at Budokan, is still one of the best concert albums ever.
Springfield has had many hits in his lengthy career, including “Jessie’s Girl” and “I’ve Done Everything for You.” He’s also branched out into acting, with recent roles on “Californication” and “Hawaii 5-0,” and his best-selling memoir, “Late, Late at Night” just went into paperback.
The concert starts at 4pm in front of the brand new Amway Center.
