No More Temporary Stage Shows for Rockford's Cheap Trick

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Rockford's Cheap Trick has decided to perform on fewer stages.

Crossed off the list are temporary stages at outdoor music venues. The decision comes in light of what happened at one of their shows in Canada this Summer. A severe thunderstorm caused the stage to collapse. Five people were hurt, including a Cheap Trick truck driver.

Cheap Trick also decided to open a museum and music venue in an old car dealership in Chicago. This isn't expected to get in the way of plans to build Rick's Place in Rockford, the hotel and conference center that's been in the works for a few years.
