(Atlantic City, NJ) February 3, 2015 – Tropicana Casino & Resort announced today a co-headline show starring Grammy Award winner Peter Frampton and power-pop originators Cheap Trick at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 31, 2015.

Peter Frampton is one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for the British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded Humble Pie, one of the first super groups. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.
Frampton’s latest work, Hummingbird in a Box, was released June 24, 2014. The new music was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet, featuring seven original guitar pieces. Frampton composed all songs on the mini-album along with Gordon Kennedy, who also co-produced the recording. The two previously teamed up for Fingerprints, which garnered them both a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.
For the past 35 years, Cheap Trick – rock’s power-pop originator – has forged its rightful place among the world’s most accomplished rock bands with a sound that blends elements of pop, punk, and even metal. Since the release of its self-titled debut album in 1977, Cheap Trick has sold over 20 million records, received 40 gold and platinum recording awards and given more than 5,000 high-powered live performances.
One of the most avant-garde, influential and enduring bands in the history of music, Cheap Trick has contributed an impressive list of classics to the American Rock Songbook, including “I Want You To Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “Dream Police”. Likely one of the most covered bands of all time, Cheap Trick continues its reign as power-pop progenitors worldwide.
