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.

There are really no bad seats in the SF Symphony Hall. We were 'way up nearly able to touch the ceiling lights, it seemed, yet the sound was perfect. The concert was absolutely brilliant. The modern Bates compositions stretched our minds: (husband hated it, wife liked a lot of parts of it, interesting discussion.) The two violin romances were lovely, and then the symphony was fantastic. How lucky we are in the Bay Area! Pluses 2nd tier folks enjoy: nice big restrooms and a snack bar right on this level.

Mason Bates piece was absolutely fabulous! Oh how my husband and I wished for an encore. We cannot wait to hear his full-length performance someday. We appreciate also the juxtaposition of Bates's creations to the ones done by Beethoven. ...continued
