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.

9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker dining • Dec 20 2013 star this tip starred

This brought back so many fond childhood memories of listening and dancing to the Staples Singers. I have been fortunate to see the entire group, including Pops, in the past at other venues, but this was a treat beyond words. Thank you Goldstar for the wonderful seats and the elegant theater hosting this event. I had a great time. Thanks to Mavis for a nice evening of memorable and historical music. Mavis still has it going on and she is flaunting it well.
Winter Blues debuted in 1999 as an annual series showcasing top blues talent, and ardent fans have consistently called for Mavis Staples as a headliner. The wait is over! A 40-year-plus veteran of the music scene, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Staples has blazed a rhythm & blues trail while never relinquishing her gospel roots. Her voice has influenced artists from Bob Dylan to Prince and she has appeared with everyone from the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd and Santana. Also on the bill: blues powerhouse Arthur Adams.
