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.

How can you not like La Boheme. The music is sensational. The singers were great, but this was a flawed performance for several reasons. First, the sound during the first half was off, and too soft. The singers were a little difficult to hear well. It was adjusted during the second half. I felt the staging was too skimpy. I've gotten used to the Dorothy Chandler providing beautiful staging, and this wasn't one of them. Finally, Musette was missing her fire and passion. She reminded me more of Mimi. Nonetheless, it was still a very worthwhile experience. By the way, dinner at Kendall's afterwards was pricey, but worth it. They finally got their act together in the kitchen.
Quotes & Highlights
Get tickets to two operas for the price of one — a special offer only for Goldstar members!
Against the festive holiday backdrop of 19th-century Paris on Christmas Eve, starving artists in the Latin Quarter engage in high jinks, high spirits and high romance. A chance meeting between the young poet Rodolfo and his neighbor Mimi leads to love while that other bohemian Marcello and his coquettish amour Musetta find that breaking up is hard to do. As the saying goes, the course of true love never did run smoothly, and carefree happiness can turn to heartbreak in the twinkling of an eye.

Don Juan’s back, and LA Opera’s got him! The sexy and sensual Erwin Schrott returns as opera’s greatest Lothario in the ravishing production that won LA Opera kudos in 2003. The Los Angeles Times commented: “The eye is startled, delighted, and sometimes enlightened by constant visual stimulation.”
Mozart’s great comic drama not only catalogs the Don’s conquests (2,065 women, to be exact), but also deftly unfolds an intriguing series of escalating calamities that ensue as those he seduced and abandoned seek their revenge against him. And when the Don disdainfully invites a vengeful ghost to dinner, all hell breaks loose.
By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Conducted by Hartmut Haenchen
Directed by Mariusz Trelinski
