Foreigner in Dallas, 7/26/08
« on: July 29, 2008, 11:13:36 am »
Rushing around now, but here are a few very quick notes -- this show kicked MAJOR A, and they were even more comfortable then when I saw them in Hot Springs, AR awhile back.

Incredible show at a sold-out venue, Superpages in Dallas.  The audience was completely into them, and it's so great to see so many people coming out to support these bands.

All the members were on fire, and how Kelley keeps up that voice, I don't know...  one of my favorite vocalists of all time, and he's amazing!

You said that right! I think Dallas would have to be my favorite show from the Bryan Adams/Foreigner shows I saw. It was just a special evening.

No problem, and sorry it wasn't much more detailed...  I can tell ya this, Jeff Pilson, Kelly Hansen and Jason Bohman bring a youthful rock vibe to Foreigner (especially Jeff with his headbanging...  haha!), and they are great for the band!

Jason's drum solo -- that guy has so much POWER I bet they could just bypass the utility company and plug him up to the venue!  Good GRIEF, the guy's hands were a blur when he started going off...

Oh, and Michelle -- so sorry we didn't get to meet at the show.  Bad timing on the communication, but let's look to meet up in the future!

I have been hearing that Jason's drum solo is even more off the hook than before...can't wait for my next show!

Yes, you are right. Jason is just a joy to watch and Jeff must be careful with his headbanging.

RipRokken, I know you were enjoying yourself! We will meet up at another show, I am sure!

I will concur that Foreigner (in Dallas) was spot on.  The band is not all the same original members but you would never know based on sound.  The singer was one of the top "Rock Band" singers I have ever seen (and I have seen a few concerts in my life).

When they played "Starrider" it took me back exactly 31 years ago to Jeppeson Stadium (Houston - UofH Campus) when the sun had just gone down and Foreigner played "Starrider" with the stars just coming out.  Talk about a "transport" back in time.

It is great these bands are all coming back for us Baby Boomers.

Greetings from OKC, I drove to Dallas over the weekend for the concert, and It sure was an awsome evening! The band was friendly with us the Fans...Mick Jones being one of my favorite had great eye contact with some of us...and Kelly was also super friendly and we the fans do appreciate..these guys were rockin all thru the night...I had a collectible photo of Mick, from back in the day and I had front row seats so I held it up and he noticed,and gave a great big smile...it was a great moment...Thanks Mick for an awsome evening! The guys are all pretty amazing. One more thing is there any chance that the band plans on making a trip to Oklahoma City, you know you have lots of fans waiting to welcome you and if lucky to meet and greet you...I will keep my finger crossed...best regards.. Jewels

I was there and had a blast. It was simply amazing how precise and tight the band sounded. Hearing the new song "Too Late" was a real treat. So was hearing all the classics. This was my 2nd time seeing Foreigner and I hope that they will come back to Dallas soon.

Imo, Jason's drumming just gets better and better. He certainly seems to have a lot more confidence in his playing than ever before.

Jewels - at www.4eigner.net they state Foreigner is playing three concerts in Oklahoma in November.

November 6 in Tulsa
November 7 in Norman
November 8 in Thackerville

I don't know how far Oklahoma City is from these cities.

Hopefully you can see Foreigner again soon.

Since the Led Zep reunion Jason has really shown what a talent he his.
He was amazing before but having to learn all those Led Zep songs...much more difficult than the Foreigner ones.
I know Jason said at the XM taping that he would be sitting behind the drums with Foreigner and some of the Led Zep style would come out.
