To help celebrate Robin Zander's birthday, here's a flashback to the Robin Zander and friends show at the Midway Theater in the Spring of 1983.

Happy Birthday to Robin Zander from Cheap Trick on Tuesday (1/23).

To this day, one of the best lead singers in all of Rock.

How about a little flashback to celebrate?

According to,

"Locally, Zander famously performed An Evening With Robin Zander, a live show at Rockford’s downtown Midway Theater, March 4, 1983. The evening included a choir and orchestra conducted by none other than Rick Nielsen’s intrepid and deeply talented father Ralph, a noted musician in his own right."

After doing some searching, I found some old video footage of that show on YouTube.

For being from 1983, the video and sound are pretty darn good.

I hope you enjoyed looking back.
