The Details: I’ve been a fan of Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander since the first time I heard him singing on that legendary album “Live At Budokan”. The live recording was a juggernaut and while the band had been around for a few years already, this was my own introduction and beginning of my appreciation of his incredible style. I am not alone in this by any means. That being said, I am incredibly excited to announce that PiercingMetal’s first contest of 2015 comes care of the fine folks at B.B. King Blues Club for Robin’s performance on Thursday. According to the press release, Mr. Zander will be doing a load of Cheap Trick hits along with numerous Classic Rock favorites that are sure to set the room on end. Having caught this show back in 2013 I can tell you quite honestly that this is going to be a really great show. Read more below on how to participate.

Robin Zander’s solo album came out many years ago and is now a high priced item. With that being the case I have instead embedded some must have releases from both artists performing at this show. Really great stuff.
