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.

Proceeds from this performance benefit the Music Center Education Division.
Astonishing inventiveness, playful humour and physical beauty are the hallmarks of renowned US dance company Momix. For 25 years they have conjured up otherworldly imagery through original use of props, light, music and the human form.
For the special benefit performance, Momix performs a 45 minute excerpt from Opus Cactus. Created by choreographer Moses Pendleton, Opus Cactus celebrates the beauty of the earth’s desert, as agile dancer-illusionists fashion a breathtaking and exotic world. In a series of fast-paced images, dancers perform amazing acrobatics, balancing on long poles and flying through the air on curving frames. A spectacular mix of dance, acrobatics, illusion and imagination, this family show will enthrall all ages.
Note: This is a 45-minute performance of a piece that has never been seen in Los Angeles. Proceeds from this performance benefit the Music Center Education Division.
