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.

The Doobie Brothers an American rock band. They have sold over 30 million albums in the United States from the 1970s to the present. Blending folk-rock acoustic and electric instrumentation with jazz-style arrangements and powerful solo performances, the Doobie Brothers have ranged in style from the bluesy rock of Long Train Runnin’ to the country tinged Black Water to the gospel/jazz rooted Takin’ It ToThe Streets, and songs that truly defy classification.
