Cheap Trick have announced a three-date UK tour which will take place this summer.

Vocalist Robin Zander, guitarist Rick Nielsen, bassist Tom Petersson and drummer Daxx Nielsen will play sets in London, Manchester and Bristol in June – with the shows lined up in support of 2016’s Bang, Zoom, Crazy… Hello – their 17th studio album and their first since 2009’s The Latest.

The band say in a statement: “We love touring the world and playing music to our loyal fan base – this is what we do and we’ll probably never quit!

“We’re as excited and energised today as we’ve ever been and we can’t wait to hit the UK this summer!”

Tickets for all three shows go on general sale from 10am on March 24 via MyTicket and SeeTickets.

Last month, Cheap Trick confirmed they were in the studio working on their next album.

They tweeted: “We’ve been in the studio working on a new album – hope to have completed by spring and released at the beginning of summer 2017.”

Cheap Trick were inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last year. The ceremony saw the band reunited onstage with former drummer Bun E Carlos.

The band are currently on tour across North America. Find a full list of their 2017 tour dates below, with the newly announced shows highlighted in bold.
