"We’re truly excited to be appearing across the continent this summer and fall, playing our bluesy kind of rock like we started in ’69. The beards, Frank's excepted, are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed. We're keeping it that way.” - Billy Gibbons

Cheap Trick will open the majority of the shows except on August 23 and August 24th, where Lynyrd Skynyrd will perform. Full tour dates are below:
