As the latest step in celebrating the 35th anniversary of their iconic 1978 live album Cheap Trick at Budokan, Cheap Trick took to the stage of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night for a performance of “Surrender.”

Last week in New York City on April 28th, the anniversary of their first Budokan gig, Cheap Trick performed in the John Varvatos boutique, formerly legendary NYC rock venue CBGB, in the first of their shows commemorating the album that immortalized the phrase “big in Japan.”

On Tuesday, August 30th, the anniversary of the second Budokan performance, Cheap Trick took over LA’s El Rey Theater for a full recreation of the Cheap Trick at Budokan album. Introduced by huge Cheap Trick fan, and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist, Flea, the band rocked the El Rey with the following set list:

“Hello There”
“Come On, Come On”
“ELO Kiddies”
“Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace”
“Big Eyes”
“Lookout”
“Downed”
“Can’t Hold On”
“Oh Caroline”
“Surrender”
“Auf Wiedersehn”
“Need Your Love”
“High Roller”
“Southern Girls”
“I Want You to Want Me”
“California Man”
“Goodnight”
“Ain’t That a Shame”
“Clock Strikes 10″
