RAGBRAI Coralville organizers announced today that Cheap Trick will headline the RAGBRAI overnight celebration at the Iowa River Landing on July 24.

Cheap Trick achieved popularity in the late 1970s for songs like “I Want You to Want Me” and “Surrender,” and also for their impressive live performances that are still praised today. The band remains popular among a diverse range of audiences, last year appearing as a featured act in Chicago’s punk-themed Riot Fest.

Tickets for the concert will be $10 for the general public and anyone wearing the official RAGBRAI wristband can enter for free. More ticket information will be available in early April.
