General Discussion / Working on my portrait of Mick Jones ....
« Last post by Starrider81 on June 11, 2014, 12:05:17 pm »
Okay say what you will about me, goof on me, call me a 2 faced Foreigner fan BUT Foreigner's music still means alot to me!! i know I have posted that I have done a portrait of Lou Gramm and even Lou himself loved it and hopefully one day I'll be able to give it to him. So I wanted to be fair, I decided to start a painting/portrait of Mick Jones. I'm not looking for any profit from this, just recognition of my artwork and hopefully if Mick sees this he'd also like to have it as a gift too!!! Understand Foreigner's coming to Lorain County in August... hopefully I cdan make the show!! Here's a link to a page where you can see my study of Mick's portrait.

Again say what you will about me .... but it's all about the music of Foreigner despite the line up changes!!

Did you end up going?
Okay, say and think what you want about this posting, ignore, laugh about it, say I'm crazy fine. But this has been on my mind since I allready painted a portrait of Lou Gramm. In addition, I know I'm notorious on goofing on Kelly, and YES he's a strong singer for Foreigner I'll admit this!! But to me Mick Jones will allllwwwayyys be the heart of Foreigner that keeps them together you have to admit that!! I understand they are coming to my neck of the woods of Ohio in Lorain County in Aug? SERIOUSLY thinking of doing a painting of Mick and if possible if I would love to hand it to him for that show...I allready did one on Lou and HE's very interested in his....Foreigner will allways be the soundtrack to my life despite the line up changes .... so if this sounds like I'm kissing up...OkAY I am!!!! Rock on Mick and Foreigner!!

Hey SU_5757
Thanks for responding.  I didn't know this!  So I've gone over to LiveNation and listed them.  There's less than 24 hours left and I'm not very optimistic, but I suppose a miracle could happen.  Anyways, thanks for the heads up.   :D
God bless!

You're too far away for me to use the tickets.  Don't know if you bought them directly via TM or Live Nation.  If so, it looks like it is a TM+ event which means you can list them at their website and transfer electronically if someone is interested in purchasing.

Hello RobG79,

Welcome to the board!

As you have been reading the forum for a while now, I am sure you know the "hotly contested topic" of Foreigner with and without Mick, current versus previous lineup, et. al. And yes, Foreigner fans, and music fans as a whole, are glad that one of the pioneers of rock music, Mr. Mick Jones, is returning to good health.

While there are varying opinions on this topic, I want to stick to your questions about the Soundtrack of Summer Tour.

For the past few years, as Mick was recovering and gaining strength to repair his health, you are correct- he would not attend many shows, just making an occasional appearance at a few shows here and there, and just doing interviews. Remember- he is 68, and recovery to "form" takes longer in the latter years in life.

I have been reading the reviews from the concerts both in the media, and on the bands websites, and perusing the pictures, and it is my understanding that he has been, and is fully prepared to perform during this tour and for the remainder of the tour, and has been performing with the band after they are a few songs into the set at every stop thus far. After a few songs pass, Kelly will introduce Mick, the crowd whips into an even more frenzy, and the Juke Box Hero himself performs the remainder of the set. The reviews are nothing but spectacular!

I am by no means affiliated with Foreigner, nor am I speaking for the band, I am not a representative of the band, I am not a forum admin, nor a member of the media. I am just a huge fan of the past and the present lineup, and sharing what I have found thus far, as I have been following this tour very closely.

I would be curious to see if anyone could add to this, who have attended some of the shows on the tour thus far. They would be able to confirm or deny this.

However Rob G, I would be confident that if you attend the show tomorrow, you will most likely get Mick Jones for your dollar!

Lastly, to anyone who may follow up this comment, let's try to keep this thread about the Soundtrack of Summer tour, as that is the main topic here. Let's try not to dilute it into a Mick vs Lou debate, old vs new lineup argument, etc. This right here isn't about that.

Hope this helps, Rob G!


PS- Let's get some reviews of the tour, fellow Foreigner friends!!

Hello Fellow Foreigner Fans!

I have enjoyed reading the forum for a while now and never have posted before. Does anyone know for sure if Mick will be touring on the Sounds of Summer Tour? I have seen Foreigner on all regular US Tours since the 1981 "4" Tour and the last three shows I have seen over the last couple of years Mick Jones was not present due to his health issues and thank God it sounds like he is getting better. If Mick is on the tour I will catch the Cincinnati show June 5th. I am an equal fan of Lou Gramm and Mick Jones and appreciate what each one does with their respective live shows. The last several years I have attended both Foreigner & Lou Gramm shows live and enjoyed both. I don't wish to say anything negative however in my opinion with the new Foreigner lineup and Mick's absence the last couple of years it's by far not the same. Without Mick the live shows seemed to have changed and become too much carrying on by band members in between songs and unfortunately Kelly now acts like the success has gone to his head. The band is so talented and sounds great however it just not right with all the antics on stage and without Mick Jones. I really like Bruce Watson and what he has done to fill in and hope to see him continue with the band. With the current line up having nothing to do with the writing or  recording of these great Foreigner songs it's just a tribute band and I don't want to see Foreigner Live again without Mick Jones.  I welcome any opinions on this topic.

Thanks for any info on Mick's appearances this Tour.

Rob G

I've been a fan of Foreigner ever since Spookytooth! I'm also a big fan of Concrete Blonde. Has anyone else wondered about the nearness of Girl On The Moon (one of my late wife's favourites) and Scene Of A Perfect Crime??????? :-\ :-\ :-\
