My summer is now complete. Went to Ravinia last night and saw Cheap Trick perform "Budokan" and "Sgt. Pepper" -- with a full orchestra. Awesome concert and had great " Goldstar" pavilion seats.

I've purchased several concert and sporting event tickets from GOLDSTAR and it always goes so well! I'm so happy I've found this organization to purchase tickets. The most recent events this summer are Counting Crows, Bon Jovi & Cheap Trick. All...continued

Great venue, but no clue as to what cheap trick was doing there.
It was a nice night to enjoy the surroundings and friends. But cheap trick was a cheap show. . Too bad a band that brings back great memories fell short on all points.

It was going to be our last show of the summer at Ravinia so maybe that affected our fun. We arrived early via the train with our picnic gear. Waited in line with some charming couple in their 80's that told us about the local history of the band....continued

Experience was great overall. Went with some first timers to Ravinia, everyone had a good time. Loved the rolling platform of guest musicians for the George Harrison number. The show was fun, all the musicians sounded very good. Only one...continued

Cheap Trick barely performed 2 hours and basically left the stage leaving people scratching their heads wondering if the show was over or not. There was no encore and no goodbye, just a very anticlimatic finish. Certainly not the best show I've...continued

Opening act was Sgt. Pepper's start to finish with the Ravinia Orchestra backing them up. Really great experience. Second act was all Cheap Trick, and they finished with the Golden Slumbers/The End medly by the Beatles. Highly recommend any show...continued

The concert was very enjoyable. They did a great job on St. Peppers. My only complaints are they didn't bring enough T-shirts to sell, so they ran out; also the band said they would play more of their songs after they returned from a break, but...continued

Concert was good but I wish they had done more original Cheap Trick songs instead of Beatles.

Concert was a "10". The performance was outstanding. Seats were in the last row and I didn't mind at all! I think they were almost better because of the orchestra and extra four vocal people. Almost everyone was standing and cheering...highly...continued

Started late, finished early, over half the songs were Beatles covers. No Dream Police

The band was surprisingly great at our age :). Excellent night of entertainment. A real surprise. The Beatles Sargent Peppers Album (for those who remember) was done flawlessly with the entire Chicago Symphony Orchestra backing them up!!! wow what...continued

The show was excellent & the price amazing. What I didn't like was the venue was not very handicap friendly if walking with a cane. Too many ramps up and down, food is on one side of the park (and extremely expensive) and restrooms on the other...continued

Cheap Trick was spot on with their interpretation of Sgt Pepper and Live at Budokan was amazing.

Got to Ravinia early (4:30) via the free shuttle bus from Highland Park Metra station. Got tickets from Will Call with no problems. Drank beverages, ate the SubWay sammies we brought with us, and people watched for a couple of hours before the...continued
