Cheap Trick celebrated the 35th anniversary of their first night at the Budokan in Tokyo -- April 28th, 1978 -- by performing their Live at Budokan album in its entirety Sunday in designer John Varvatos's Bowery boutique in New York City, the former home of the legendary club CBGB.
They did the entire 19-song set that was released as part of the Complete Concert and 30th Anniversary packages. The original album, released in February 1979, only contained 10 songs. Sunday night's show was streamed on LiveStream.com. The Tricksters are good friends with Varvatos, having appeared in his 2008 ad campaign.
On Tuesday, 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.
Sunday night’s set list:
"Come On, Come On"
"Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace"
"Can't Hold On"
"Need Your Love"
"I Want You to Want Me"
"Ain't That a Shame"
"Clock Strikes Ten"
