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.

THIS EVENT WAS TERRIBLE. I wish for my money and time back. The openers were less than amateur and Bobby Valentino himself put on an amateur performance. He was way too dramatic and just not at all PAYWORTHY to see. Also whoever was running the sound system totally messed it up for every performer. The mic was screeching and squealing and it sounded completely unprofessional and at times the band or beats were WAY TOO loud in comparison to the performer's mic.
I would not recommend this to anyone to attend, not even if they were looking for a good laugh.

This was my first Goldstar event and thought the concert would be a fun event. However, I was severely disappointed. The opening acts were terrible and Bobby V was not much better. His mic kept screeching and it hurt my ears. I walked out in...continued
Quotes & Highlights
Watch the video for Bobby V’s “Slow Down.”
Born Bobby Wilson in Mississippi but raised in Atlanta, smooth R&B crooner Bobby V — known as Bobby Valentino until a lawsuit from a British performer of the same name — had a hard time convincing his skeptical parents that the music business was the place for him. When the 16-year-old Wilson hooked up with the Organized Noize Productions team, his parents knew he was serious and that his dream of a record deal was entirely possible.
With a group of friends, he formed Mista, a Boyz II Men-styled singing group that made some waves with their single “Blackberry Molasses.” The group’s self-titled album appeared in 1996 but failed to match the single’s success. A second, unreleased album was recorded with producer Timbaland’s help, but management problems split the group and Wilson decided to focus on college. After earning his degree in 2003, he returned to demo work. One of his demos ended up in the hands of Ludacris, who made Wilson the first R&B singer in the rapper’s DTP (Disturbing tha Peace) crew. The sultry “Slow Down” announced the singer’s rebirth as a DTP member in early 2005 and soon became a BET and radio favorite. As the ballad was landing on numerous schools’ prom ballots, Def Jam/DTP released his self-titled debut, a Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart-topper. Special Occasion equaled that success in 2007, yet Wilson left his label on good terms and aligned with EMI. His first album for the label, titled The Rebirth and released through his boutique label, Blu Kolla Dreams, was released in February 2009 and featured productions from longtime collaborators Tim & Bob, as well as Carlos McKinney and Raphael Saadiq. Fly on the Wall, released on Capitol in March 2011, debuted in the Top Ten of the Billboard 200. Led by the Lil Wayne collaboration “Mirror,” the singer returned on eOne in October 2012 with Dusk Till Dawn. David Jeffries, Rovi
