Cheap Trick announced plans to establish a music-themed museum and restaurant in Chicago that will be located in the same area as former blues and R&B record labels.
According to Reuters, Cheap Trick manager Dave Frey revealed that the rock and roll band plans to open a music-themed museum and restaurant in the Chicago neighborhood along South Michigan Avenue where Chess Records, Brunswick Records and Vee-Jay Records were once operated. The former record labels used to attract such artists as Aretha Franklin, Chuck Berry, and The Rolling Stones, who all recorded music in the area.
As for the proposed Cheap Trick project, temporarily called Cheap Trick Chicago, Frey explained that the the museum and restaurant will also include a radio station and a performance space but more details will be made public once financing is complete.
Cheap Trick formed in 1973 in Rockford, Illinois.
