Does anyone have the date of Cheap Trick's appearance on the German show Rockpop?
Do you mean the Rockaplast show in 1982 that was bootlegged on video?
No. This is a show called Rockpop, lyp-synced and most likely shot in '79.
There are two differnt RockPop appearances.
The first is from 1979 (IWYTWM & ATAS) and was probably shot at the end of August and the other one`s from 1980 (Just Got Back & Stop This Game). The performance took place in November that year I suppose.

The other German TV shows (live concerts) are the two Rockpalast shows from 1979 (Cologne) and 1983 (Essen).

Were those appearances live or lip-synced?
Lip-synched, but very funny as they (Bun E & Robin) do their best trying to make people see it's NOT live! Smile

  I've been watching the 1979 RockPop performance this evening and yeah, the guys are lip synching but I still think its a fun little clip.
  Thought it was cute that Rick's guitar was painted with the German flag but I sure couldn't figure out what kind of guitar it was.

   Did some digging online and found an incredible pic of Rick jamming with Ac/Dc during rehearsal who were also on this program. Now I have to look through my Ac/Dc DVDR comps to see if I have the footage of their "set".
Sure wish the rehearsal footage was out there!


Uh, is it...?   Huh
