You know them, you love them; FOREIGNER is returning to Hard Rock Live September 27, 2014. Their songs have been chart toppers, show stoppers, heart thumpers, and good time rock’n’roll at its finest. Originally formed in 1976 it’s hard to remember a time when Foreigner wasn’t a part of rock’s landscape. Formed by veteran English musician Mick Jones, fellow Brit and ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald along with American vocalist Lou Gramm Foreigner staked their place in musical history with such momentous releases as FOREIGNER (1977), DOUBLE VISION (1978), HEAD GAMES (1979), URGENT (1981), and AGENT PROVOCATEUR (1984).
It was albums singles that grabbed our attention and never let go. “Cold As Ice,” “Feels Like The First Time,” “Double Vision,” “Dirty White Boy,” “Head Games,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You,” “Juke Box Hero,” and their most moving and requested song to date “I Want To Know What Love Is,” captured the hearts of millions and proved beyond a shadow of a doubt FOREIGNER could rock with the best of them.
I was fortunate enough to see the band live at the Hard Rock Live here in Hollywood Florida a couple of years ago. I must say it was one of the best rock shows I had seen in a long time. There was no need for gimmicks or theatrics; the music said it all. As the band returns for another go-round I am confident a good time will be had by all. Don’t pass up the chance to rock the night the away with this legendary band.
