Cheap Trick Live in Australia

Video is seldom kind to middle-aged rock bands on the comeback trail, but power-pop avatars Cheap Trick manage to come across as winners on this new concert tape. Rick Nielsen’s Huntz Hall-as-guitar-hero routine has lost none of its comic appeal, Robin Zander can still belt out a mean ”California Man,” and drummer Bun E. Carlos still looks like a seedy accountant bashing out his frustrations. Cheap Trick Live in Australia gives fans little choice but to surrender anew to the band’s goofy charms. B+
