Cheap Trick coming to date festival

Cheap Trick is on tap to headline the 2007 Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival.

The band, which made its name in the late 1970s with hits like “I Want You to Want Me,” is being described by county officials as “a major headliner who will draw a very large audience to the fair.”

Riverside County supervisors are slated to vote on the idea and the band’s $76,250 contract on Tuesday. The meeting starts at 9 a.m. in Riverside.

The Date Festival runs Feb. 16 through Feb. 25 at the Riverside County Fairgrounds, 46-350 Arabia Street in Indio.

Last year's entertainment included Los Lobos and Carrot Top.

I wonder who I need to see to score some tickets?
