Concert Reviews / August 19, 2014 - Standing in the rain, (Lorian Co., OH)
« Last post by robk13 on August 20, 2014, 12:25:28 am »
The band was welcomed by an audience that was ready to rock. It was incredible watching young kids jumping and singing 'Double Vision' along with the band--right along with those of us who are no longer kids (well, at least according to that darned birth date on our driver's license.)

Unfortunately, the threatening weather caught up to us several songs into the set. The wind picked up and Kelly announced that due the threat of wind and lightening there would be a pause; however they were told it might not be too long and the band would be back on stage if at all possible.

The crew jumped on securing the stage and tarping the gear. Security moved the crowd well away from the stage in an efficient and respectful manner. They made the right call because before long the clouds opened, the lightening crackled, and it rained steadily for a good half hour. I am guessing the duration because it is hard to judge time hunched under a poncho on a folding chair while rain pours over you and lightening crackles everywhere.

As the rain poured down, a group in the stands began to chant, "Hell no, we won't go!" Then, during one series of bright lightening bolts, another group broke into 'Juke Box Hero'. That gave me a reason to smile as cold rain continued to  wash down my back.

Eventually, the rain stopped, the crowd cheered, and then the wait for a decision. Again guessing, it was about another half hour before music was heard from the PA, and cheering erupted once again.

Soon, the crowd rushed back to the stage, the band appeared, and Kelly spoke: Good news, and bad news.

First, the bad news. Another weather cell was on the way and lightening could still be seen in the area. All things considered--the weather, the already soaked infrastructure, etc., it was not feasible to completely reset the entire stage. It was understandable as there are so many issues, from electronics, to safety, and no doubt more.

The good news: The band wanted to do a couple more songs for us anyway. So, we were able to rock to "unplugged" versions of two more songs, closing with Feels Like the First Time.

This evening there would be no Juke Box Hero, but I was thrilled to be able to see my boys again. Hoping they will make another stop in my neck of the woods next year, as it seems those stars in my eyes just will not go away!

I try not to voice negativity in public forums, but  I've been ignored on private emails.   This continued to be a poorly orchestrated night for the Meet and Greet. There were many others who also never received instructions for time and place of meeting,.  I didn't shell out the high $$  for a guitar but received a drumhead without Tom Gimbel's autograph when the merchandise was handed out by fans. Then to top it off, my photo still has not been posted.  I've tried 2 private inquiries so far regarding the photos and had no response.  Six pages of photos, but I guess mine didn't matter.  Anyone else disillusioned and disappointed?

It's interesting that you raise the issue of Mick's absence.  Looking at the posted meet and greet photos , Mick's last appearance was July 27th.  Since the timing coincided with a break in The Soundtrack of Summer shows, perhaps it was a scheduled break for Mick as well.  It does leave us with the question of what is to come.

Sending best wishes for a complete recovery for your fracture and glad that there is a replacement show upcoming so soon.  Hope that we see an ongoing presence from Mick and that his health issues are not worsening.

Hi guys  :)

First of all I'd like to thank you all for keeping Foreigner alive. You're truly awesome! :) I love all of you and enjoy watching Foreigner's concerts videos online a lot *-* Unfortunately that's all I can do; watching concerts online, because I live in Tahiti in French Polynesia and my favorite bands never come here :'( I know it's far but I'm a huge fan and it would be a dream come true for me to see you live/meet you. Please make a fan happy! (you already do but it would be just awesome to see you here :D)

Lots of love from Tahiti, keep up the great work! :-*
Thanks again,
Well, understand from Live Nation website Foreigner is coming to Cleveland's Rockcasino in Nov 16th --- tickets go on sale Aug 15?? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I guess I need to do alot of KISSING up if I want to attend this show and Give Mick his ""gift"" huh? :)

Mr. Annoying!!! ;P

You shouldn't have to miss a drumbeat of the show.  I attended shows with both line-up orders.  Brandon, who orchestrated the Meet&Greet. was clear in his instruction version that the merchandise pickup happens  by  meeting him next to the merchandise booth at THE END OF THE SHOW.  He fully understands the logistics of the night.  Not only do you not want to miss out on any Styx if they are closing but NO ONE wants fans heading back down front with guitars in hand.  Seems like asking for a disruptive ruckus.
General Discussion / Meet and Greet and signed Guitar pick up
« Last post by Rossco on August 09, 2014, 06:50:38 am »
Has anyone here done the Meet and Greet with the signed guitar package?  We have that for this Friday's show in Louisville, KY.  Our emailed instructions say "TO PICK UP YOUR SIGNED GUITAR, please head to the MAIN MERCH BOOTH immediately after Foreigner's performance.".  That's fine  and dandy but if Foreigner plays first,  then we're waiting to get our guitar and Styx starts playing, then that's a huge drag because we  really want to see Styx too and don't want to miss any of their show.

But if Foreigner plays last then this is a non-issue.  If Foreigner plays first can we pick up our guitar after Styx plays?  So, has anybody been through this and what can you tell me about it?  Thanks for your help.  The bottom line is that we want to rock to the entire show and we want to get the merchandise that we already have paid for.
