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.

The show was great, and it was nice to support an event that will be providing scholarships to low-income students to attend private schools of their choice. The show ran a bit long, and I was surprised that Cameo's set was cut short, before they got to perform "Word Up". WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT????? All the bands were great though, and I enjoyed the show immensely other than that little criticism.
This show is recommended for ages 18 and older.
The event’s organizer, Andern Educational Research, Inc., encourages everyone to participate in its first annual benefit concert. 100% of the proceeds will benefit AER’s GEMs initiative, which gives low-income students of color who have demonstrated high academic achievements opportunities to attend private high schools and receive scholarship funding up to $20,000 to go towards tuition. Andern Educational Research, Inc., is a new nonprofit that was founded in 2012 by a group of dedicated parents and educators with the mission to develop, promote, support, and provide educational opportunities to students of color and families who live in low-income and undeserved areas of the community.
