General Discussion / Foreigner Autographed Guitar for sale
« Last post by clavey12 on February 06, 2015, 02:44:13 pm »
I have a Les Paul Special II electric guitar (sunburst color) signed by the whole band. It was won during a meet and greet with Foreigner. It's in excellent condition and has never been used/played. I'm asking $350 obo (shipping included) and would like to sell it to a fan on here before I try eBay. If interested, reply in the thread, send me a pm or email and we can discuss more details. First come, first served!

Concert Reviews / Taupo New Zealand Concert
« Last post by Alfmac on January 29, 2015, 08:56:15 pm »
Having waited and waited months after buying my ticket on day one, my brother and I were in the mosh pit in Taupo being wowed by Foreigner.  WHAT A CONCERT!  Kelly is a true professional who, unlike any of the other acts on that day, totally involved his audience in the performance.  It was a very rare and uplifting experience and Kelly stated that he believed that the audience "Got it" when talking to us.  I really, really hope that the band seriously consider coming back to our country very soon.  You would be most welcome.  Would love to see you again.

Not exactly an original topic to post about.  I like the original poster's take on it.

To me, at a minimum, Mick has to be on stage playing, or it can't possibly be called "Foreigner" with any shred of credibility. No Mick, no Foreigner, IMHO.

Are you sure it was Fort Wayne? The giant inflatable juke box was used on the "4" tour in 1981-1982. My records indicate that Foreigner played the following Indiana dates on that tour:

November 9, 1981: Roberts Memorial Stadium, Evansville, IN
November 11, 1981: Market Square Arena, Indianapolis, IN
December 13, 1981: Convocation Center, Notre Dame University, South Bend, IN

The ND Convocation Center and Roberts Memorial were smaller venues, capacity about 11,000. Market Square of course was a big, NBA-size arena, capacity of 18,000. My records also show that the Market Square show was sold out whereas the other two were not.

I also checked the Agent Provacateur tour in 1985, and the band played both Evansville and Indianapolis, but not Fort Wayne.

Hope this helps.


I went to a Foreigner concert in the early 80's in Ft. Wayne.  I went with my high school girl friend (now wife) and I am trying to figure out the date as part of a birthday present.

The show was in a large venue (maybe the colosseum) and there was a giant inflatable juke box for Juke Box Hero.

Any help at all would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I bought Foreigner 4 back in July 1981, and ever since, I've wondered what the phrase "welcome christopher" that is etched on the inner groove of the vinyl LP means. Anybody know? Thanks!

Hello Fool For Rock,

Welcome to the board!

Nothing has been posted official yet, but I recently read an interview featuring Jeff Pilson, and rumor has it that Foreigner is going to be touring with Kid Rock this year. That should be rather interesting!

And I assume Bruce's hair is real, and have no reason to believe it isn't haha. I haven't touched his hair nor do I ever plan to, but based upon pics on his Facebook page, he and that hair go way back, haha.

Concert Reviews / Concert Review Sydney Australia - January 27 2015
« Last post by alexaki on January 27, 2015, 08:02:39 am »
Hi All I just came back from tonights Foreigner concert in Sydney Australia.. Let me say the band were awesome!!! And yes Mick played for most of the 1hr 45min performance....A full concert review shall be appended to this post in the next 24-48 hrs....wow my ears are still ringing....

Ok I'm still buzzing from last nights concert... I've been a Foreigner fan since I  was 18... I am now a young 50... I last saw Foreigner  in July 2011 in Paris whilst on holiday... After a 9 year absence the Band had a 2 show Australian tour , last night they played at the Enmore theatre  in Sydney  Australia. This is a boutique theatre seating capacity of 2,000. Now for the concert. The set list is largely unchanged from when I last saw them in 2011. Started with Double  Vision and ended with hot blooded. They did 1 encore and played for 1 hr 45 min. They were the main act.  The band was simply brilliant, Mick came on after the 4th song and played  right through. All the hits we know and love were played... No Starrider which was  a letdown... It was a full on energy show and the crowd really got into the music. Kelly apologised twice for taking so long to visit our shores and promised to be back soon... I hope he keeps his word !!
