Cheap Trick rolled into Southwest Louisiana on Friday, Jan. 13, 2017 for a performance at the Golden Nugget Casino in Lake Charles, La., and turned this Friday night concert into a rock and roll party as a standing room only crowd enjoyed a nearly 90 minute performance featuring 16 songs, including classic tracks such as “If You Want My Love,” “Ain’t That a Shame,” “The Flame,” “I Want You to Want Me,” “Dream Police,” and, set closer, “Surrender.”
