Win Tix To See Robin Zander In NYC On 4/4/2013

Poster - Robin Zander at BB Kings - 2013

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 have this latest contest thanks to the folks at B.B. King Blues Club for his performance this week. Zander will be bringing along Zebra’s Randy Jackson as his opener. This is going to be a good one, read on to learn 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.

  1. Been a big fan of Cheap Trick’s since I was a kid in the mid ’80s. When I took my girlfriend to Niagara Falls in the summer of 2011, I found out that CP was playing a free outdoor show in nearby Lewiston, NY and re-arranged the entire trip to see them. She was none too pleased but we’re getting married next month so I guess she got over it. My favorite hit song is “Surrender” but deeper in their catalogue I’m a big fan of “Eight Miles Low”. I’d love to see Robin solo in my favorite venue of B.B. King’s. And I’d love to see Randy Jackson for the first time live too!

    1. Congratulations Steven you have won a ticket for the Robin Zander show on Thursday. Please watch the comments section for words from me on how to claim the prize.

  2. Robin like fine wine simply gets better with age. Ive seen Cheap Trick 10 times and never a bad show. How can you go wrong with Dream Police, Surrender, and I want you to want me? He has a vocal texture that allows him to rock out and at the same time be so tender and emotional. In my eyes the Flame is the greatest Ballad in Hard Rock. If you want the straight up you can enjoy If It Takes A Lifetime, You’re All I wanna do, or go a little deeper ith Tonight It’s You or If You Want My Love. Plus he (well the band) worked with Lennon. Such a great and enduring talent. Been a longtime fan of Zebra and spent many a night in that famous club in Brooklyn or in the general tri-state area.

  3. My history with cheap trick goes a long way back, over 30 years in fact. I remember watching the 1979 classic teen movie Over The Edge on HBO in the early 80s as a young child. Cheap Trick has 4 songs on that soundtrack, and those songs stuck with me until i was old enough to purchase their records. Songs like Way Of The World, She’s Tight & If You Want My Love were staples of early MTV. Who could forget the classic scene in Fast Times At Ridgemont High when scalper Mike Damone tries to push Cheap Trick tickets on an interested girl. (“The magnetism of Robin Zander, the charisma of Rick Nielson.”) Seen CT about 8 times in the past, and i’m really curious about the Robin Zander band. As for favorite CT songs i won’t pick the obvious Surrender even though its one of the greatest songs ever. Instead, my top 3 would be He’s a Whore, Downed & Auf Wiedersehen.
