Love the responses  ;D

It's obviously the same person or an accomplice. I didn't check the link but I assume it's footage of Ian  8)

Yeah if my friends Foreignerfan1971, Foreignerfan1972, and Foreignerfan1973 were here, they'd be with ya all the way.  I already spoke to Foreignerfan1974 and he totally agrees.

No problem.  I really wasn't expecting him to be there.  Maybe he just shows at the shows that are completely sold out.  The triple bill tour is looking like a lot of dates.  Can't wait for that.  Styx is so amazing live

Great write up!

Fantastic summation in the final paragraph of the article:

"One final word to the folks who crab and stay home lamenting that original members of the band are no longer on stage – you’re missing a great experience, a terrific, high energy show, and a damn good time.  Personally, I believe that as long as the band is having fun and performing at the top of their game, and people are buying tickets and enjoying the shows, who cares? If you started a band or any other project under a moniker, and if over 37 years members quit, left or passed away, as long as you are remaining true to the project and people want what you’re selling, keep doing what you do. Foreigner gets this.  Damn the Torpedoes!"

Enjoyed this review including comments on the lineup.  Hope you will too,  The poor guy seemed to freak a bit when Kelly took his camera, but it sounds like all was forgiven.

Jayman thanks for reporting in on Mick's appearance.  It had seemed like Mick had been occupied with some other things during some of the absences.  I didn't envy the travel schedule given the recent winter of unending storms.

Starrider81- I'd never realized that your comments on the frizzy blonde dude were due to a name omission here on the board.  The alternate guitarist is Bruce Watson, formerly with Rod Stewart and Big Country.  I had thought that he connected to "Rock of Ages", but I'm not certain.

Just hoping that the summer triple bill is an easy tour schedule so Mick will be around a lot more.

Feeling ripped off...paid to see foreigner Friday in Lancaster, PA.  Not even a mention of Mick Jones...really piss poor.

I was at the Lancaster show, too. But, I have been to many other Foreigner shows since the Hershey, PA - Night Ranger/Foreigner/Journey tour stop years ago. That was BEFORE Mick's reported health problems. Since then, I would say Mick showed up at about 40% of the shows, and not necessarily for the entire performance.

Personally, I can't fault him. Mick is getting old, unfortunately. As with anybody else, health issues like Mick has (had) tends to govern people's ability to do many things, including being up on stage around hot lights and equipment.

I have certain expectations when I go to Foreigner concerts now. Bruce isn't a bad guitarist. He has a friendly personality and tries to "do right" by Foreigner fans by playing the songs as originally as possible. When I talked to him at a Meet & Greet in Pittsburgh last year, he seemed quite humbled by the fact that he's "filling some big shoes." How would YOU feel if you found yourself filling in for Mick?

Mick DID show up the next day at the Port Chester, NY show. It was only for the second half, but Mick did take a moment to address the audience, thanking them for continuing to support the Foreigner franchise, and to note that he wishes to be able to be a permanent tour member again in the future.

So... give him a break. Mick or not, Foreigner hasn't really been the "original" Foreigner for decades. It is what it is. Enjoy the fact that the songs are still sounding as good as the studio originals with the current lineup.
