Foreigner

feelslikethefirsttimeForeigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world, racking up scores of smash hits, multi-platinum albums, and sold out concert tours.

From Cold As Ice to Hot BloodedUrgent to Jukebox HeroWaiting For A Girl Like You to the chart topper I Want To Know What Love is, Foreigner’s thrilling mix of blustery blues and impeccably crafted pop continues to captivate generation after generation of music fans.

Today, over 70 million albums later, Foreigner is an ensemble of talented musicians each adding their individual credentials to the mix to make the band stronger and more powerful than ever.

 

 

2012

The year proved to be the most successful since founder Mick Jones reformed the band in 2004 by adding vocalist Kelly Hansen.  Foreigner released their latest album, ‘Feels Like The First Time’, in September.  The Billboard Chart three disc set included new digital studio recordings of their greatest hits, a DVD of their nationally broadcast PBS TV special and ‘Acoustique’, a CD featuring a fresh unplugged studio approach to some of their most memorable music.  Foreigner ended the year on a high note with the band’s biggest ever one-week digital single sales.  Album sales were at their highest since the 80’s, and Foreigner out performed 2011 catalog sales of AC/DC, The Eagles and The Stones.  In April, Foreigner entered the Top 10 at Classic Rock Radio for the first time.

Jeff sums up his experience with Foreigner: “It all feels so natural because I was a big fan of the band, and the music and style are a part of my blood. Foreigner, to me, was always the perfect combination of strong songs, great singing, intense heavy rock musicianship, with a touch of R&B added in. Plus the band has great chemistry. There’s just no feeling in the world like going out and kicking butt every night. I feel like I’ve finally found my home!”
