New York, NY- June 8, 2004- Multi-platinum rock legends Cheap Trick are set to release From Tokyo To You on June 15th, 2004 via Big3 Records/Cheap Trick Unlimited. The DVD will feature live performances, exclusive interviews and behind the scenes footage from the band’s 2003 Japanese tour. Cheap Trick is no stranger to Japan, as the 1979 release At Budokan is one of the most celebrated live recordings of all time, reaching quadruple-platinum. Footage from this show is seen as the band reflects on the momentous occasion.
Cheap Trick will be celebrating the release with a special in-store appearance on June 15th at New York City’s J&R Music World (23 Park Row, near City Hall). The band will be greeting fans and signing autographs beginning at 12:30 PM. (NO MEMORABILIA,PLEASE! THE BAND IS ONLY SIGNING THEIR NEW DVD!)

Carlos (drums) and Tom Petersson (bass) – offer a rare glimpse into their world with candid, humorous insight into personal and band history.
“This is Cheap Trick- the H-O-L-E story… hilarious, outrageous, loud and exciting,” says Rick Nielsen.
Performances on the DVD include:
Just Got Back
If You Want My Love
Scent of a Woman
The release of From Tokyo To You adds another chapter to Cheap Trick’s legacy as they continue to reinvigorate American rock’n’roll with a unique sound that has been the foundation and inspiration of many of today’s hottest acts. The band has numerous successes under its belt, including four platinum albums and seven gold LPs, a number-one single with “The Flame,” several other Top 40 hits and a gold-certified video compilation entitled Every Trick in the Book. With more than 25 years of world touring, Cheap Trick has sold out shows in America and Japan, playing with the likes of AC/DC, Pearl Jam, Queen, The Smashing Pumpkins, KISS and the 1996 Lollapalooza Tour. They can currently be seen touring North America through June in support of their latest studio release, Special One, with fellow legends Aerosmith.
