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.

9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker dining • Dec 20 2013 star this tip starred
Reviews & Ratings
From the beginning, Kansas achieved success by playing only their original music. This “garage band” from Topeka was discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner, and released their first album in 1974. The band has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, Best of_), one platinum live album (_Two for the Show) and a million-selling gold single, “Dust in the Wind.” Kansas appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70’s and ‘80’s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan.
In 2009, in their hometown of Topeka, Kansas celebrated their 35th Anniversary with a symphonic concert, accompanied by the Washburn University Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Larry Baird. The DVD release There’s Know Place Like Home captured this unique live performance and featured special guests Kerry Livgren & Steve Morse and includes favorites such as “Dust In The Wind,” “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Point of Know Return” as well as a sampling from each album in their discography, with a special symphonic touch.
Inspired by their 35th Anniversary DVD There’s Know Place Like Home, in 2010 Kansas began their Collegiate Symphony Tour performing their hits accompanied by various college and university symphonies throughout the United States to help raise funds and awareness for collegiate music programs. In 2011, this tour lead to a special collaboration with the US Army Orchestra culminating in the Carry On Concert honoring America’s veterans on Veterans Day 11/11/11 at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC.
The band, which is currently comprised of drummer Phil Ehart, bassist Billy Greer, violinist David Ragsdale, singer/keyboardist Steve Walsh, and guitarist Richard Williams, will continue their Collegiate Symphony Tour through the spring of 2012.
