Cheap Trick headlining rescheduled Rock Hall show

With the postponement of the second Rock and Roll Hall of Fame benefit show Cary's Koka Booth Amphitheatre last fall, which had a weak line-up, we didn't expect much from the rescheduled show. But by booking Cheap Trick for the new date on Saturday, May 1, they've gained a touch of credibility. It's funny because Robin Zander was one of early names dropped by the concert's organizers in 2008 for the first Rock Hall show. Obviously, that didn't come to pass.

The rest of line-up, as of now, includes originally scheduled acts Georgie Satellites, Atlanta Rhythm Section and the White Sox All-Star Band.

Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday, January 15 at noon here for $40 to $85. Enjoy a classic video of Cheap Trick's "Surrender" below.

The date we originally speculated to be the rescheduled date on April 15 is obviously not correct. According to Pollstar though, Patty Smyth and Scandal who were scheduled to play the Rock Hall event, are going to play at Koka Booth Amphitheatre on April 15. No details are available for this show, so it may not be happening.
