Ah, Welcome to the Foreigneronline forums, where your entitled to your opinion, just as long as it doesn't waver from the general consensus. The forum members here need to understand that the fan base for Foreigner is so much larger then the posters on this site.
The very fact that chump 329 came on here to post a concern, should be commended. I see it as an element of care more then anything. Others might respond with silence and loss of interest.
I for one struggle with Mick not being there, especially with the band sounding so good. I've been a fan for sooooo long, it really is impossible for me to lose interest in this music. But that's me, and that's you. Time will tell if it's everyone else.
The economy in the U.S.A is fragile at best, so it really shouldn't be surprising if people take exception to spending their grocery money on a concert ticket to a band they loved but don't recognize anymore. And I don't mean for aging reasons.
On another note, Melanie, aka Foreignerfiles, your a wealth of information..it's ridiculous..lol.
