Live at Budokhan Turns 35

Live at Budokhan Turns 35

Cheap Trick will celebrate the 35th anniversary of Live at Budokan with a show Sunday night in New York City.

It will be held in designer John Varvatos‘s Bowery boutique, the former home of the legendary club CBGB. They’ll play the same exact set that they did 35 years to the day, April 28th, 1978, at the Budokan in Tokyo. The show will stream on LiveStream.com starting at 7:50 p.m. ET. The Tricksters are good friends with Varvatos, having appeared in his 2008 ad campaign.

On Tuesday, the Cheap Trick will do the same thing in Los Angeles at the El Rey, and that night they’ll play the set they did on April 30th, 1978 at the Budokan. This show will air live on AXS TV.

Looking back on the longevity of Live at Budokan, guitarist Rick Nielsen tells us, “The fact that a lot of people enjoyed our music at that time and still seem to enjoy it…is amazing and inspirational to us.” The only difference 35 years later is that Nielsen’s son, Daxx, is on drums instead of Bun E. Carlos, who no longer tours with the band. At 32, he wasn’t born when the album was recorded.
