Great review! Very cool how Kelly gave the audience an opportunity to choose a song between a few selections- very unique. It is refreshing to know that this band never "mails-in" a performance.

They don't need to disclose anything to anyone. Things don't always happen as planned. There's no point in repeatedly bringing up the same thing over and over again. Accept that they aren't going to say why they had to cancel the shows. And act like an adult. They apologized and rescheduled the shows. Waiting a year to see them is better than not seeing them at all.

I fail to understand why people are so intolerant when something happens like this. It's pure selfishness to think that this only affects you or other fans. Something happened that forced the cancellation. Do you think they wanted to cancel?  Or get all this crap heaped on them (at least they found out who their TRUE fans are?) They aren't any happier than you are. Maybe try and put yourself in their place instead of whining.

Canceling a show isn't like calling off work. There are contracts with several entities involved - at least in the U.S. that would include employees for the venue, security (usually security work for a company that is hired by venues,) employees of the band, the promoter, the venue, the management, lawyers for both the band and the venue to work out the contract, the booking agent, vendors (again, are independent of venues,) merchandise. So canceling is a big deal, and everything needs to be redone to reschedule...and choose a date that works for all parties involved.

Mick,

You got what you wanted. You got your money back. So please, get over it already. If you can't, might I suggest an anger management group? I mean, how far overboard can you go?

And you are just speaking for yourself and your hurt feelings. You are not speaking for the fans.

Nearly 8 weeks still nothing!!  Sooooo fan friendly!! 
Come buy our hits album?  Yep another one?  Come see us in Europe?  That was a real kick in the teeth for all UK fans waiting?
When will you all not look at this situation and go actually yes the UK fans are being treated badly here??  8 weeks? Nothing?
Over 50 days?
For God's sake get a heart and care about your fellow fans and care how they are being treated here!!
Stop burying your head in the sand for the sake of kissing backsides!!

Ask the Band / CASINO RAMA JULY 7

My wife and I will be at the July 7 concert at Casino Rama. Back in the late 70's when in high school she she designed a Foreigner album cover in a contest and won first place. It would ge an honour if possible to have you guys sign that cover on July 7. I can send a pic of the cover. Cheers

Good decision, Mick!
I hope all this bitching the band is finally over.
One must really be a little stupid (sorry ....) to think rearrangements are done quickly. As if the venues are waiting for Foreigner to tell them when they want to come. As if those venues haven't booked other events already.
Anyway, glad that I won't see you in the U.K.
