General Discussion / walworth county (WI) fair
« Last post by jimzgirl on June 18, 2014, 08:14:54 pm »
Hey Chicago fans, did you see that Foreigner is scheduled to play the Walworth County Fair on 8/31?  It is not shown here on the tour page, but the Fair page is showing it.   Should I assume this is for real?  I can't even figure out how to get tix....I think general admission is just the fair price, but to get reserved track seating, it seems like the link takes you here and this show doesn't show up on the tour schedule.  Anybody know?

The third song of new music on this album, PRISONER OF LOVE, is a beautifully supercharged power ballad that is a near perfect song in every way. Lou's vocals are freaking incredible all throughout the track; the piano and synthesizer are breathtaking in both their simplicity and complexity; plus a rocking riff by Mick. If I'm not mistaken, it is Mark Schulman on drums. The melody flows beautifully and the backup vocals are awesome as well. As the song fades away, Lou lets out one of his highest belts ever!

I SO WISH they would insert Soul Doctor and POL in the show.  IMO they are 2 of the band's best songs and I have no doubt that Kelly would kill on them. Soul Doctor could be one heck of an opener. OMG, the energy--and Kelly's intensity!! I'm sure they could work them in. A couple of the older songs...well, they are old, but they aren't the greatest "songs." (Not gonna mention titles because I know I'll get thunked in the head, LOL! But, let's be real...) Well, maybe there are some business reasons that keep them from doing them. Too bad, because those songs would really enhance the show.

Of course he didn't go, otherwise he would be back here either praising Mick or bitching about him not being there.

Who would shell out $ to see a show when they don't like the singer and don't like the band?

Original songwriter DON FELDER teamed up with STYX and FOREIGNER for this very special collaboration, as well as a stunning new version of FOREIGNER’s massive hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” which is only available as a limited edition vinyl disc and on iTunes.

The "Soundtrack of Summer" news item refers to a CD only available at Walmart and also this iTunes version of FOREIGNER’s massive hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” which is available on iTunes.  Has anyone heard the new version?  I didn't see anything that looked new at iTunes.

Yeah that's a shame.  I was supposed to go to that one in November that got cancelled.  I think thanksgiving weekend that was.  But at least they always play the surrounding states on the east coast almost every year so people can still catch them with some extra driving.

General Discussion / Foreigner Outcasts?

After a summer of triple bill shows, I was looking forward to a Foreigner only concert.  It seems that the tiniest state is not filled with Foreigner fans.  A second concert in under a year has been cancelled.  What's up Rhode Island?

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!!

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!
