Spencer, IA (KICD)–The Clay County Fair will host an evening of rock featuring Cheap Trick with special guest Here Come The Mummies Saturday, September 6th at 7:30 p.m.
Cheap Trick has been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable since the 1970′s. With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks, 40 gold and platinum recording awards, and timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “The Flame,” Cheap Trick is a musical institution. Anyone familiar with Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” will note that Cheap Trick wrote and performed the theme song.
Here Come the Mummies is an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5,000-year-old Egyptian mummies. Using their brand of “Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave,” HCTM has opened for P-Funk and Al Green, rocked Super Bowl Village 2012, become regulars on “The Bob and Tom Show,” performed at massive festivals like Summerfest, and made themselves the darlings of sell-out crowds over wide swaths of North America.
Ticket information for all grandstand events will be released this Spring.
