On of the most critically acclaimed live albums of all-time, Cheap Trick’s At Budokan, will receive special 35th anniversary performances on both coasts.

The band will play the full Budokan set, in order, on April 28, 35 years to the day after the original show, at the John Varvatos Bowery boutique in New York. Cheap Trick is close with Vervatos after doing a 2008 campaign for his brand. The boutique where the performance will take place is in the storefront once occupied by CBGB.

Varvatos said “I’m proud to host this momentous show for my friends Cheap Trick at my Bowery store which is celebrating its own 5th anniversary this month.”

The show will be streamed worldwide at

Two nights later, the band will duplicate its April 30, 1978 Budokan set at the El Rey in Los Angeles. That show will be broadcast live on the AXS network.

Cheap Trick at Budokan sold over three million copies and peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums, the biggest of the group’s career. Two singles were released from the album, I Want You to Want Me which went to number 7 in the U.S. and number 2 in Canada, and Ain’t That a Shame which peaked at 35 in the U.S. and 10 in Canada.
