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.

Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.Tune-In Festival L.A.: eighth blackbird travel • Mar 31 2014 star this tip starred

The Symphonic Jazz Orchestra (SJO), the only ensemble of its kind in the country dedicated to the unique American genre of symphonic jazz – music that blends the American language of jazz with European orchestral traditions – will perform at UCLA’s Royce Hall. Conducted by Mitch Glickman, the Symphonic Jazz Orchestra will perform with special guests George Duke, Grammy Award winning jazz vocalist and Brazilian native Luciana Souza and vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Raul Midón, in an eclectic night of jazz, Brazilian, funk, classical and world premieres. Comedian/actor/singer Tommy Davidson will host the evening.
The 67-member professional ensemble, under the leadership of Music Directors George Duke and Mitch Glickman, is dedicated to the commissioning and performing of symphonic jazz compositions. Since its debut in 2002, the Orchestra has performed six world premieres along with three U.S. premieres in concerts throughout Southern California including Royce Hall, Ford Amphitheatre, Schoenberg Hall, San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, and the Walt Disney Theater at CalArts.
The evening will also feature the world premiere of “Elements,” written by composer and conductor Charles Floyd that was commissioned by the Symphonic Jazz Orchestra with support from the James Irvine Foundation. This piece showcases the Orchestra and will also feature soloists from within the orchestra.
