Cheap Trick has been on the road promoting their 16th studio album, Rockford, since its June 6 release. The album has received rave reviews. TRRT music reviewer Jonathan Hicks wrote in his May 10-16, 2006, review: "Rockford gets back to what made the band famous: fun pop hooks, an enormous guitar sound and accessible lyrics. … If Rockford is any indication, Cheap Trick is far from writing the last chapter of their rock and roll storybook."
