The last time we saw Foreigner was on 3/27/15 and 3/28/15 in Elkhart Indiana and Lima Ohio.   The next show we have tickets for is the July show with Kid Rock in West Palm Beach Florida.   However,  my wife ( Kim) was not going to wait another month and a half to see her favorite band.   We looked on-line and found a pair of front row tickets to the May 29th show in Glen Allen Virginia.  She said "front row we are going" even though I was the one who was going to be the one driving (12 1/2 hours each way) from Wisconsin and we also had tickets for the Rolling Stones for the Saturday May 30th show in Columbus Ohio.  We decided to sell our tickets to the Rolling Stones so, Foreigner,  here we come.   At 2:30 a.m on Wednesday the 27th we packed the car and headed to Virginia.  Finally,  at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday the 28th we arrived at our hotel in Glen Allen.  Good thing we packed a XXL 56 oz. bag of peanut M&M's to munch on to keep us awake. 

We awoke the day of the show to partly cloudy skies and 80ish degree humid temperatures.  We met some Foreigner fans from Glen Allen for lunch before the show.   After lunch we walked outside to cloudy dark grey skies.  Great!!!!   We had to go back to the hotel so Kim could get into her "Foreigner attire"  and head to the venue to get our tickets from will call.   On the way to the venue the skies opened and unleashed a furry of rain, thunder and
lightning.   We were thinking great time to see a outdoor event and drive half way cross the country to see a show.  But, luck was with us and after a bit of a delay the show was a go.

The event opened with Craig Wayne Boyd a guy who I guess won the show The Voice.  I don't know but he did a good job.   Then it was time we where waiting for.  To a nearly sold out show.  Ladies and Gentlemen would you please welcome.......FOREIGNER.  The band started with Double Vision followed by Head Games, Cold as Ice, Waiting for a Girl, Dirty White Boy,  Say you will,  Feels like the first time,  Urgent, followed by Keyboard / Drum Solos then Jukebox Hero.   Encore songs included Long Long way,  I want to know (in which a local High School choir joined the band on stage) and ended with Hot Blooded.  The band sounded great as usual.   Kelly's vocals are always amazing.  Michael and Chris's solos were again great.   Bruce and Jeff were pure energy and Tom's instrumental flexibility is something you need to see to believe.   Sax solos in urgent are the best.

At the end of the song " I want to know " Bruce Watson took off his guitar and slung it over the shoulder of a girl from the choir.   The girl looked stunned.  He said something to her, she smiled from ear to ear,  then started to cry.   He just gave this girl one of his guitars.  All done without the spotlight on them.  I bet over half the audience didn't even realize he did that.  These gentlemen never cease to amaze us.  Like I said in my reviews of Elkhart IN and Lima OH, just when you think they can't get any more personable, Bruce gives one of his guitars to a young aspiring musician.  AMAZING !!  These guys are just so fan friendly.  It's just one of the reasons we traveled thousands and thousands of miles, seen 11 Foreigner shows in the last 12 months.  Again, another great show, we again met a bunch of very nice people (Kim says I just go up and talk to anybody) and we even got to travel to the outer banks of North Carolina and relax for a few days on the beaches before heading back to Wisco.  Great show, meet some great people, add few days on a beach, it just does not get any better.  Next stop for us .... West Palm Beach  (unless Kim decides to go sooner).

General Discussion / Re: Foreigner is a Tribute Band

I agree with Nick. The title doesn't match the thread. When I hear the words "Tribute Band" it doesn't go with all the new released recordings. Tribute bands don't cut recordings time and time again nor do tribute bands have original members do they? Naw, I prefer to call them Foreigner and keep tribute band calling to those garage bands that entertain.

I have an 18 year old son who has down syndrome and loves your band. He plays your music all the time and I had a t-shirt made for him with jukebox heroes on it. I'm trying to bring him to your July 2nd concert in saratoga springs ny. It would be great for him if he was able to meet you.

Thanks a lot for the review!

Wish I could drive 30 miles to see them. Not lookin' like it will be this year, though...  Ah, well. Be glad for what you have had.

It was a near sold out show at this very nice arena on the NV/CA border.
We sat next to a lot of people seeing the group for the first time!  I wonder how that feels. No Mick for this show, but they did OK. The songs are the same but they have added several new intros; not only to start the show, but on many of the songs. They have also added longer music breaks and longer endings.
I get it.  It makes the show seem different, but the same.  They did play LLWFH as one of the encore songs, and it has been awhile since I heard them do that.
I hope they come back with Def Leppard in the fall.  We had a good time like we always do and, of course, Kelly was nothing short of sterling.

I will drive the 30 miles to see the same set list for the 25th time.
No worries, I just love these guys.  More to follow tomorrow morning; or whenever.

Due to the $20 Ticket Price Point for the Cheap Date Tour with Kid Rock, premium seating was not allocated to Foreigner VIP Packages. Per Kid Rock, the front rows at the shows this tour are reserved for lucky fans who will get an instant upgrade to the front.
That being said, the Foreigner VIP Upgrade Packages do not include a premium seating ticket.
