Cheap Trick with Holland, Bacchanal, San Diego, CA [12.28.87]

The second night in a row that I caught Cheap Trick, which also happened to be the two first shows with original bassist Tom Petersson back in the band for the first time since 1981.  Saw the night before at the Coach House with Steve Kobashigawa (thanks for the tix pal) and caught this show with my brother Craig and his girlfriend who were visiting from Virginia Tech.  The set was exactly the same both nights, but I remember them doing “Standing On The Edge” on this evening, but my notes don’t mention it…hmm.  Holland opened the show.  Rick Nielsen’s t-shirt reads:  “My singer’s better than your singer.”  Damn, don’t rub it in…long live Robin Zander.
