With Jason Falkner
Cheap Trick has been continuously rocking since 1974, and you can almost always find them on the road. In fact, they spent this summer touring with Poison and Def Leppard, then immediately hit the road solo in support of their aptly titled album, "The Latest." Road warriors! They even performed the theme song for "Transformers II"—proving uncle rock is here to stay. Opener Jason Falker is an insanely underrated singer-songwriter. After playing in the acclaimed San Francisco act Jellyfish (with Jon Brion), he basically taught Brendon Benson everything he knew—writing much of Benson's debut "One Mississippi." Opening for Cheap Trick beyond makes sense.
