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.

I missed the first piece; the second, and most exciting, was the exquisite piece by Revel for left hand. Such intricacies, exciting runs, surprising percussive moments i have never heard before. the Gershwin seemed kind of like a pat piece the orchestra has done a million times - maybe because I've heard it so many times, but it didn't have the excitement it should have. By the end of he last piece I felt a little beat up. I think it should have been the penultimate piece, with Gershwin finishing.
