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 review is for the pianist... I am so glad that I got to see him! He truly is an amazing pianist, there was something really special about his piano, something so tender and magical. I hope to see him again on a bigger stage (performing a piano concerto, for example).
The quartet was good... but I agree with another reviewer that they didn't let Nobu shine. And I didn't enjoy the Bartok piece. Bleh.

I hope that someone else was as confused as I was about this event.
I'm giving it one star for a reason I thought I'd never see. Both the quartet and Nobu were amazing, but . . . the quartet played over the top of him, literally, sonically,...continued
