Cheap Trick have still got it, and they're happy to show it off.
The rock veterans deliver the goods on the season finale of "Guitar Center Sessions," with a performance of their 1979 classic "Dream Police". Billboard exclusively premieres the clip below.
"Dream Police" was Cheap Trick's highest-charting song on its release, reaching No. 26 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the title track from an album that reached No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA.
In recent years, the rockers have toured the album in North America and reissued the classic album with four bonus tracks.
In the "Guitar Center Sessions" finale, Nic Harcourt chats with the band about their rise, their motivation and their career, which has yielded more than 20 million album sales and 16 studio sets. The episode airs Jan. 17 at 9pm ET/ 10pm PT on DIRECTV’s Audience Network (channel 239).
"Cheap Trick is the perfect way to close out another season of Guitar Center Sessions," comments Dustin Hinz, director of music and entertainment marketing for Guitar Center Sessions. "We're always excited to bring quality music programming to fans across the country and after such a wide range of musical acts featured this season, a band as theatrical and dynamic as Cheap Trick is the only way to wrap."
The likes of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Gavin DeGraw, Gary Clark Jr., and Gary Allan have appeared on the show.
