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.

As a musician with background in this ancient style of choral music, I am delighted to say this ensemble was pitch-perfect, even spellbinding. Because it was a Mother's Day choice, two family members accompanied me. To my relief, both were impressed and inspired by music they'd never heard before. Another (professional) Early Music performer who attended told me the Capella group under Peter Rutenberg is the tops in that field. Curious parties can check out their CDs.
Philip the Bold (1364-1404), John the Fearless (1404-19), Philip the Good (1419-67), and Charles the Bold (1467-77) comprise the direct lineage of the Valois family dynasty that controlled the ever-changing political and geographic shape of the Duchy of Burgundy — a gift in 1364 of King Charles V (“the Wise”), the elder Philip’s brother. The king’s namesake risked it all in pursuit of more territory and lost both his life and a good deal of land back to the French crown at the Battle of Nancy in 1477. Only the holdings in the Low Countries passed to Charles the Bold’s daughter and only heir, Marie of Burgundy (1477-82), and subsequently to her son, Philip the Fair (1482-1506).
Throughout this period, the dukes lavished money and station on a grand music program that set a high watermark for the period and saw some of the boldest and most creative developments in music come to fruition. Preferring the louder wind instruments to the softer strings, the dukes also had a hand in supporting a riot of musical color, even at solemn moments. A varied selection of works by Machaut, Dufay, Josquin and Brumel bring to life this important era in music history.
