Yes, the boys from Rockford, Illinois who have been making music for nearly 40 years will headline the newly named Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl (formerly Insight.com Bowl) tailgate pregame party called “Tablegate” this Sat. Dec. 29 from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. in Lot 3 at Sun Devil Stadium.

Anyone who has read Phoenix Concerts Examiner before knows that I have a serious crush on Robin Zander, but then what female fan of the band doesn’t? He is archetypal lead singer of a rock band and it doesn’t matter how many times I see them or how many years pass, I get those butterflies in my stomach when I hear Cheap Trick is coming to town.
So when I say that I am super excited that the people who run the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl are bringing the band to town, you can be sure I am not exaggerating.
Fans of the band can look forward to hits like “Surrender” that has the single best lyric ever, “…rolling numbers, rock-n-rollin’, got my KISS records out….,” “I Want You to Want Me” and “Dream Police” to name just a few of the band’s mega hits. I hope they will include “Voices,” “If You Want My Love,” “Stop This Game,” and the all-time killer, “She’s Tight” in their set list as well.
In a recent press release announcing the show, Kathy Benning, executive vice president, global brand and business development at Buffalo Wild Wings shared, “We are all about providing a fun, social experience, and we know Cheap Trick’s performance will definitely add to the bowl game excitement in our inaugural year. What a great way to energize the fans and kick off the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.”
Cheap Trick has played more than 5,000 shows, sold more than 20 million records, appeared on 29 movie soundtracks and earned 40 gold and platinum recording awards. Whether you are a mega fan or just looking for a great way to spend a Saturday night, don’t miss this show. The bargain price for a ticket to get in not only includes Cheap Trick, but pep rallies, performances by the university marching bands and cheerleaders, games and a plated meal—you can’t beat it.
In addition, college football fans can attend the game immediately following that will match the TCU Horned Frogs against the Michigan State Spartans 8:15 p.m. at Arizona State University’s Sun Devil Stadium. Tickets for the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl are available online at www.buffalowildwingsbowl.org or phone (480-350-0911).
