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.

Quotes & Highlights
“Touches even the most hardened of hearts.” —Fayetteville Morning News
Billy Jonas is a singer/songwriter, guitarist, “industrial re-percussionist,” and a one-man-band whose primary instrument is the audience.
Concerts begin with a simple “tuning” of the audience; from there a whimsical trajectory carries listeners through stories of life, love, and triumph over ’Murphy’s Law.’ Jonas’ original pieces are played on fanciful “industrial re-percussion” instruments made from found objects. He sings in a clear tenor voice; his guitar work is adventurous, alternately percussive and lyrical.
Jonas’ heartwarming work has been enjoyed across North America since 1987. Previously a member of the highly acclaimed duo, “The Billys,” he has been featured at prestigious festivals and venues nationwide (see selected venues). Jonas has shared stages with some of the world’s favorite acoustic artists, including Patti Larkin, Ani DiFranco, David Wilcox, Richard Thompson, and Pete Seeger.
Jonas’ recent CD, “Life So Far,” sparkles with unique perspectives and found sounds. Songs filled with hope, yearning, wonder, and wisdom include special guests David Wilcox, Glen Velez, Robert Moog (on Theramin), and Zimbabwe’s Black Umfolosi voice and percussion choir. Jonas also has released a video for younger audiences, entitled “Bangin’ and Sangin,’” that has garnered critical acclaim, including a Parents Choice Gold Award, and inclusion on the New York Times “Best” listing.
Billy Jonas’ performances will inspire, inform, and enlighten. His work is born out of respect and reverence, and seeks to honor the creative energy in everyone. Billy provides performances and workshops for adult audiences and/or family audiences.
Billy is accompanied by a full ensemble of singers and re-percussionists at larger venues.
