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.

The parking is very disorganized at MTW. Be sure to allow time going in and getting out. On the Atherton side, they are usually line up into the street. It appears there is only one line, but there is normally two. There is just no sign or person to let you know . You may see someone a block away swing their arms, if anything.'S Wonderful info • Apr 21 2014 star this tip starred

Bell was fantastic as usual. In the first half, however, the piano often overpowered the violin, which made us think they didn't put much effort into staging. Fortunately, the balance improved significantly in the second half of the show. Brahms and Schubert are fine, but would have liked to hear some of the canonical Mozart and Beethoven violin concertos too. But Bell being Bell, 5+ stars NTL well deserved.
As to the venue, when the offer said 'rear', we had no idea they meant second to last row from the back of a gargantuan stadium-type theater where binoculars should have been de rigueur.
Bottom line 5+*s for Bell, and being generous 4*s for venue, overall 5*s.

Joshua Bell and Sam Haywood played a Valentine's day program which was only "romantic" with a capital R, and then only in the first half of the program. These pieces were not in the typical large concert repertoire and were probably inaccessible...continued
