FOREIGNER, one of the biggest rock bands of all time, are internationally renowned for creating some of the most iconic songs in rock music. With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock & roll’s most enduring anthems including “Cold As Ice,” “Juke Box Hero,” “Feels Like The First Time,” “Urgent,” “Head Games,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You,” “Say You Will,” “Dirty White Boy,” “Long, Long Way From Home,” and the worldwide #1 hit, ”I Want To Know What Love Is,” Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game.
Special guests are the legendary, multi million selling, Swedish hard rock band EUROPE. Hot off the heels of a Spanish tour with Def Leppard and Whitesnake, Europe have made nothing short of a remarkable comeback with their last four studio albums, “Start From The Dark,” “Secret Society,” “Last Look At Eden” and their ninth and most critically acclaimed studio album “Bag Of Bones.” Europe will perform songs from their last four albums, plus classics including “Rock The Night,” “Superstitious,” “Carrie,” “Prisoners In Paradise” and their worldwide No. 1 rock anthem “The Final Countdown.”
Special guests FM will be opening the concerts on the upcoming UK tour. Earlier this year, FM released two critically-acclaimed albums “Rockville” and companion album, “Rockville II.”
