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.

In a stunning marriage of Indian and Iranian classical music, sitar virtuoso Shujaat Husain Khan, son of the legendary Ustad Vilayat Khan and Kayhan Kalhor, master of the kamancheh (the traditional fiddle of Persian classical music) present an evening of inspired improvisation. The duo performs together for the first time in seven years and are accompanied by traditional tabla percussion from Samir Chatterjee . The name Ghazal reflects the artists’ inherent cultural link: in the Persian tradition, a ghazal is a genre of poetry, characterized by a blend of ecstatic spirituality and earthly desires. In India, ghazal has evolved into a form of semi-classical popular music and usually takes the form of a love ballad.
