There you are. Omg, I post about WPs and it took you this long to show up? I outta spank you. Lol, your killin me. I hear you on the timeline. Looks like we need to go to MySpace photos 2006 and up. I have no WP pics cuz someone never wears them on the West Coast at venues that I've attended over all these years. Your a lucky girl. Have the German Tarts had them? Idk , but I'm positive the originals are not the ones you sent me last week.  The close ups show different stitching on the sides and there seems to be a bit of stretch in the fabric. You showed me pics over nine years ago and those are the originals. They were very white & tight. Btw, ty for the yellow pants pic. Omg, I love those. It's Summer, he needs to dust those off and wear them 💛.

Btw- it's like a ghost town in here... Where the heck are all the girls? Hmm, maybe time for the Foreignettes roll call on FB and see how long it takes them to show up here for a girlie check-in. Seriously, im gonna spank all of you for slacking, lol.

General Discussion / Re: Foreigner is a Tribute Band
« Last post by Vince on June 06, 2015, 08:04:18 pm »
Just watched the remastered behind the music again. Man it irks me when someone says they sound better now than they ever did. I know opinions vary but it strikes me that anyone that says that just wasn't there from 77-85. Having seen every incarnation during that era many times I can definitely say Foreigner through the AP tour was a powerhouse with one of the most dynamic twosomes in Mick and Lou ever seen in rock history. The 6 piece version was brilliance and the 4 and AP touring groups were very polished and powerful. The writing and recording of all of the Foreigner classics during that period and delivered by one of the greatest singers and guitarists/composers ever was just so awesome it makes me feel sorry for anyone who thinks it's better now. They don't know what they missed.

The last time we saw Foreigner was on 3/27/15 and 3/28/15 in Elkhart Indiana and Lima Ohio.   The next show we have tickets for is the July show with Kid Rock in West Palm Beach Florida.   However,  my wife ( Kim) was not going to wait another month and a half to see her favorite band.   We looked on-line and found a pair of front row tickets to the May 29th show in Glen Allen Virginia.  She said "front row we are going" even though I was the one who was going to be the one driving (12 1/2 hours each way) from Wisconsin and we also had tickets for the Rolling Stones for the Saturday May 30th show in Columbus Ohio.  We decided to sell our tickets to the Rolling Stones so, Foreigner,  here we come.   At 2:30 a.m on Wednesday the 27th we packed the car and headed to Virginia.  Finally,  at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday the 28th we arrived at our hotel in Glen Allen.  Good thing we packed a XXL 56 oz. bag of peanut M&M's to munch on to keep us awake. 

We awoke the day of the show to partly cloudy skies and 80ish degree humid temperatures.  We met some Foreigner fans from Glen Allen for lunch before the show.   After lunch we walked outside to cloudy dark grey skies.  Great!!!!   We had to go back to the hotel so Kim could get into her "Foreigner attire"  and head to the venue to get our tickets from will call.   On the way to the venue the skies opened and unleashed a furry of rain, thunder and
lightning.   We were thinking great time to see a outdoor event and drive half way cross the country to see a show.  But, luck was with us and after a bit of a delay the show was a go.

The event opened with Craig Wayne Boyd a guy who I guess won the show The Voice.  I don't know but he did a good job.   Then it was time we where waiting for.  To a nearly sold out show.  Ladies and Gentlemen would you please welcome.......FOREIGNER.  The band started with Double Vision followed by Head Games, Cold as Ice, Waiting for a Girl, Dirty White Boy,  Say you will,  Feels like the first time,  Urgent, followed by Keyboard / Drum Solos then Jukebox Hero.   Encore songs included Long Long way,  I want to know (in which a local High School choir joined the band on stage) and ended with Hot Blooded.  The band sounded great as usual.   Kelly's vocals are always amazing.  Michael and Chris's solos were again great.   Bruce and Jeff were pure energy and Tom's instrumental flexibility is something you need to see to believe.   Sax solos in urgent are the best.

At the end of the song " I want to know " Bruce Watson took off his guitar and slung it over the shoulder of a girl from the choir.   The girl looked stunned.  He said something to her, she smiled from ear to ear,  then started to cry.   He just gave this girl one of his guitars.  All done without the spotlight on them.  I bet over half the audience didn't even realize he did that.  These gentlemen never cease to amaze us.  Like I said in my reviews of Elkhart IN and Lima OH, just when you think they can't get any more personable, Bruce gives one of his guitars to a young aspiring musician.  AMAZING !!  These guys are just so fan friendly.  It's just one of the reasons we traveled thousands and thousands of miles, seen 11 Foreigner shows in the last 12 months.  Again, another great show, we again met a bunch of very nice people (Kim says I just go up and talk to anybody) and we even got to travel to the outer banks of North Carolina and relax for a few days on the beaches before heading back to Wisco.  Great show, meet some great people, add few days on a beach, it just does not get any better.  Next stop for us .... West Palm Beach  (unless Kim decides to go sooner).

I agree with Nick. The title doesn't match the thread. When I hear the words "Tribute Band" it doesn't go with all the new released recordings. Tribute bands don't cut recordings time and time again nor do tribute bands have original members do they? Naw, I prefer to call them Foreigner and keep tribute band calling to those garage bands that entertain.

General Discussion / WPs throw down 💛
« Last post by southbeachnites on June 05, 2015, 12:55:44 am »
It seems me and G Girl have a difference of opinion on the original WPs. Go figure?
 Although I haven't had my grabby hands on them... Oh lala

My sight for originals were last seen in 2008 in photos that my lovely lady provided me. As much as I love to  advertise that they still exist... I lurve all Kelly's new version pants fashioned to rock the stage with a bit of stretch to excel his climbing, walking the crowd and who knows... Maybe I'll nab him on my pully. The tight is the center of  attention for the lead man of Forigner for years, swooning all the ladies that love him. Well ladies... Guess what?

Old school WPs must have reached a Hidden closet but have you spyed all the new?

And, do  you even know about the old yellow and red?

Well, my personal opinion on the yellow:

Yes, yes and more yes. What the _ did those go? Sigh.


As for the red... Perfectly healthy as the whole inspiration around this front mans era is his pants!!!  Well, he does have a voice that is fronting an existing band from long ago and actually sings better than you know who... and we all have to hear the BS, lol, they are soooo jealous of Kelly. F- them!

I'm so excited to see what new fashion he brings to the stage but I'm entirely engaged in the old school. Soooo, im ready to see him personally resurrect the full fashion of the famous pants he keeps and will hope he brings a pair on stage now and then.

So what pants have you spotted him in ladies?

The new, the old, doesn't matter. What appeals to the fans were those  above and will always be those tight fit jeans he dons sporting buttons  down the ankle. Do tell ...

Ask the Band / concert on july 2nd

I have an 18 year old son who has down syndrome and loves your band. He plays your music all the time and I had a t-shirt made for him with jukebox heroes on it. I'm trying to bring him to your July 2nd concert in saratoga springs ny. It would be great for him if he was able to meet you.
