Two iconic American rock groups will share the stage at the Fabulous Forum this summer as Cheap Trick joins Boston for their "Heaven on Earth" tour. Known for their killer pop hooks, Boston sold millions during the '70s and '80s with their catchy version of prog rock. Their self-titled debut was one of the fastest-selling pop debuts in history, spawning three hit singles that became American classics: "More Than a Feeling," "Long Time" and "Peace of Mind." At the same time, Cheap Trick was perfecting the delicate balance between power pop and hard rock that made them a major influence on future punk, metal and alternative bands. Songs like "I Want You to Want Me," "Surrender" and "Dream Police," along with their dynamic live performances, sealed their reputation as arena rock gods. Now, 40 years into their careers, the two bands are still going strong. The "Heaven on Earth" tour is traveling the country in support of Boston's sixth studio album release, Life, Love & Hope, and this is one of a select few appearances where Cheap Trick will be performing with them.

Totally awesome experience. Highly recommended for novices. Diemecke delivered the lecture by personifying Debussy (complete with fake french accent). He did a wonderful job, telling audiences the background of the piece and explained step by step how Debussy composed the piece.
I googled La Mer and watched part of it on YouTube before the event. Afte that, I dreaded going to this event, but had to drag myself for the sake of my son (music class assignment). I came out totally satisfied and glad I had to accompany my son to this event. Diemecke's "lecture" helped me enjoy the orchestra's performance as Debussy had meant it to be. Brilliant!
