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

Les Yeux Noirs is a fabulous group. Chava Alberstein should be opening for them. She's a boring, middle-of-the-road folk singer left over from the 60s. Her choice of material is all Hebrew or Yiddish. Most Of the Hebrew songs were uninteresting musically, and since the majority of the audience didn't understand the lyrics, pretty pointless.
She has little presence and not a great voice.
The program design was poor. The talent and energy of the musical group made Chava a serious disappointment following them.
Quotes & Highlights
“Alberstein’s quivering tenor is sublimely expressive, full of pathos when caressing a ballad, frisky when riding the crest of a traditional dance tune.” —Entertainment Weekly
With nearly 50 albums to her credit, many of them now gold, platinum, or triple platinum, Chava Alberstein is the most accomplished singer in Israeli history, musically meandering from folk to rock to traditional and worldbeat styles. The evening is a unique double bill with the Paris-based octet Les Yeux Noirs performing an irresistibly modern gypsy-klezmer fusion.
