« Last post by mick2112 on April 13, 2014, 11:25:38 am »
Hey all
Was lucky enough to be at the bands London acoustic gig last night  and it was just WOW!!
Had never seen the band do a gig in this style and it is such a special night and the connection with the packed O2 at Shepherds Bush was electric for the just over 90min gig which included a Q&A and i even had my question is sent in to a national online rock radio station read out and Kelly mentioned me from the stage that they knew me from face book also.
Highlights well first all band members there for the whole gig,all smiling and laughing and looking like they where having a great time, a set list that really worked of classics like Juke Box Hero and First time and Hot Blooded,Waiting for a Girl and with a choir joining them 'I want to know what love is' but also songs like the Elvis cover
That's alright and The Flame Still Burns from one of my all time favourite films 'Still Crazy' also it was special to be there to hear for the first time live from 'Foreigner 4' A girl on the Moon which was just stunning!! To a man the band where superb with Kelly in great voice and being even acoustic the ultimate front man he is and Mick in great shape telling stories and looking to be having a blast,Tom and Jeff in full flow of guitars and vocals and Sax with huge smiles and my first time seeing Bruce who fits in very well to the line up and not forgetting Blue and Chris on keys and Drums who together make up one of THE great rock bands anywhere in any format.
The 15 min Q&A was really interesting and a excellent addition to the night and the band looked to have fun with that part also.
Every single person in the packed venue on their feet at the end in an emotional atmosphere as loud as any electric gig and more than worth the 8 hour round drive from Manchester my friends and I made.
Fantastic night,awesome gig by an amazing band.
Think we floated home when we got back at 3am but none of us cared after such a great night.

I have an extra front row ticket-Mick's side stage left next outside aisle seat for face value if anyone is interested PM me.  It is a will call ticket so you will have to meet me at the box office.

It was awesome to be at the ceremony! Before Mick showed up we had time to chat with some Pompey folks, we were served drinks and canapes - very nicely arranged. Mick really took his time to talk to everybody and getting Meryl's present put a big grin on his face. It was a painting of him with the Portsmouth City Hall and a fast car - a lovely piece of art. And as Jeff said already - we felt ever so honored to be part of it.

Great review, Matt! Thanks for sharing your experiences and your pictures with us.
We've been to the Portsmouth show and the band rocked so very well - another great night to remember!
Yesterday afternoon in a simple ceremony in the foyer of the Portsmouth Guildhall, Mick was officially recognized as the first inductee into the hall's Wall of Fame.  Mick was presented with a copy of the framed picture that is now hanging on the wall. Mick was joined by his son Chris, cousin Sharon, uncle Peter and aunt Rea. Pictures can be found at the FOREIGNER Facebook page.

Also in attendance were Babs, Claudia, Meryl and myself. We were all grateful to be there to support Mick. It was especially special for Babs and I as we had been in attendance at Mick and Lou's induction into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame last June.

What a gig! I'd not heard of "FM" before, but listening to them opening the show, my god what a wonderful way to start the evening's entertainment. They were fantastic, will certainly search for more of their songs :-)

Having only hearing about the concert last minute, I was fortunate enough to get a ticket and luckily near the front too! (Row E Seat 17, Red jumper & Glasses, in case you wanted to know!)

Perfect for taking a few photos and the occasional video (Gallery link further down).

When Europe came on, I was amazed - I'd only ever heard their music on my computer, to see them live was amazing, They certainly did keep the audience on their toes and liven them up for Foreigner coming on afterwards! Hats off to them :)

Now, the headliner! FOREIGNER! OH MY, What a sensational performance it was, better than I had ever expected, they're still going strong, despite the older age than in their "hay day" - Certainly pleased by the performance!

Also, No idea who won the raffle, but congrats to the person who won the Signed guitar!! (Yes, that's right, they held a raffle to win a signed REAL guitar from Foreigner, how awesome is that!)

If you want to check my pics out, Sorry for the quality, no flash and from my mobile phone!! You can see them here:
