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.

Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.Tune-In Festival L.A.: eighth blackbird travel • Mar 31 2014 star this tip starred

Ms. Kidjo has an amazing voice and spirit. She invited everyone up on stage to dance with her for the final two numbers, it was like one big family party! Her music and essence invite the audience into another realm of our world community, and you can feel the power and positive strength of the African continent through the artistry that she shares. She is truly a world-class diva.

Angelique Kidjo is going back to her West African roots and the audience rooted! Her incredible voice, brief social commentary and authentic West African dancing are tight! Sadly, she omitted her most popular English songs such as "Voodoo Child."...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“[Kidjo’s] supercharged pipes have never sounded better, her irresistible energy and joie de vivre never more palpable … Kidjo reaffirms her global-diva credentials.” —LA Weekly
Angélique Kidjo is the most popular female African artist to emerge since her idol Miriam Makeba. Hailed by The New York Times for her “growls and swoops that link African tradition to American soul music,” Kidjo cross-pollinates the drum-based grooves of her native West Africa with Euro-pop, R&B, electronica and Latin and Caribbean music to create a potent Afro-funk fusion. Her albums regularly top Billboard’s World Music charts and have garnered four Grammy nominations and ecstatic reviews. She brings her exuberant performance style to Royce Hall, performing songs from Djin Djin, her new star-studded recording featuring guest performances by Alicia Keys, Joss Stone, Ziggy Marley and Peter Gabriel.
