Slideshow: Cheap Trick at Hoosier Park


It was loud, it was melodic and it was over before we knew it. Cheap Trick compressed a forty-year career into just under an hour and a half Saturday night at the sold-out Terrace at Hoosier Park, playing to mixed crowd of people who could have seen the band at Market Square Arena in the 80s and a few who may have been conceived afterwards. Armed with guitarist Rick E. Neilson's son on drums, the band launched in the traditional "Hello There" and proceeded to rock small town Indiana. It wasn't until midway through the set before the band played any of their bigger hits (1982's "If You Want My Love"), instead focusing on fan favorite album cuts and lesser-known singles from the 70s and 80s. After a cover of "Magical Mystery Tour", they wrapped up with the classics like "Dream Police", "I Want You To Want Me" and "Surrender", and, as good rock stars do, closed the show by 9:30pm.
