Ok, we now have the product courtesy of CD Universe. Paid a little more in the hopes there might be a "Deluxe" version out there for our European friends, but that does not appear to be the case. That said, what we have here is very good. While Nightlife was never among my favorites and I would have preferred "I'm Gonna Win" or "Don't Let Go"  there can be no debating that the song is performed extremely well. Blistering, you might say. The song I was looking forward to the most was "Woman in Black". It is given a very solid, faithful treatment and is strong. Small part of me was hoping the guitars might get stretched a little beyond the studio version but I don't hear that. Where I do hear it is "Break It Up". Wow! They killed this one. More powerful than I was expecting. Took some liberties with it, all for the better. Happy with "Girl on the Moon". Nothing over the top, just a classy, clean representation. Will say I think Tommy's "Urgent" solos on previous live releases show off his extraordinary talent a touch more than this one does. Faithful to the studio portion as always, but his own signature licks are better on the Vegas and Nashville releases. One other item that jumped out at me. The drums on Hot Blooded. Ever since we lost Jason, Brian and Marc, the drums have just sort of been there. Good to hear them powerful, out front and with Chris Frazier featured  prominently. The overall sound of this recording clearly has some new technology involved and is incredibly crisp. Props to Jeff Pilson on the producing job. Also props to Bruce Watson and certainly Mick for some very nice guitar work. This is a good get and am happy to finally have my hands, and ears on it. Merry Christmas to all and a very Happy & Healthy New Year. JC
General Discussion / Foreigner in Champaign, IL

The Virginia Theater in Champaign, IL is promoting Foreigner  on 3-29-15.  Pre-sale tickets were to go on sale today but the Virginia box office does not have any acknowledgement from Foreigner about this show.  I've been ready to purchase tickets since I heard about this event on 12-15-14.  Also, it was said that a Meet & Greet would "probably" be avaialble but that has to come from the Foreigner camp.

My question: is Foreigner really coming to Champaign and will you have a M&G?  If so, when will this all be tied together so that fans can get their tickets?  Officially tickets go on sale tomorrow 12-19-14 but the pre-sale was to be today.

Thanks for any answers you can provide!   :)

Well, the 16th finally arrived and I found my way to one of the bigger, better stocked Best Buys in the area only to find that the new CD cannot be purchased at the store and can only be obtained online. Very disappointing. If this CD were set up with a store display or even simply placed with new releases, it would fly off the shelf as a popular stocking stuffer. Sooooo many more would be sold. Instead, no store exposure and you have to hunt it down online. While the true fans will certainly go to that trouble, the mainstream folks who have long forgotten about Foreigner could have been reeled in again had they been able to see the cover of this disc with that familiar 4 staring them in the face at the big box stores.  Big opportunity lost this close to Christmas. The impulse buys were out there to be had.

Then call it an "official tribute." Should a band be recognized as The Beatles or Led Zeppelin with zero original members simply because Paul McCartney or Jimmy Page want to be "honored?" Give me a break. That would be narcissism on the highest scale. Playing the occasional show, or part of show, doesn't count. If Mick was touring with the band full time, fine, but anything other than that the band shouldn't be called Foreigner. It should be billed as an official tribute.

I agree with you Luke and continue to pay tribute to this current incarnation/line-up of talented musicians.  Each member has Mick's stamp of approval or they wouldn't be performing as Foreigner.  Live music is a gift in this increasingly electronified world.  I'd rather appreciate the positive aspects than mope over the past.

Foreigner is a tribute to Mick Jones whom founded the band, wrote or co-wrote all the music, assembled the band members for the last 35 years, who has kept Foreigner alive, relevant and focused all this time, and now with the current lineup The band is better than ever and reaching millions of new and old fans. Plus in addition to all that
he still performs !!!  Thank you Mick !!!!!!
