It was another busy weekend as Foreigner played the final two shows of the Germany tour at Giessen on Friday and ending in Bad Kreuznach on Saturday. Having played 10 shows, Germany will be missed. Foreigner hopes to see you soon!
It is always great to see the next generation of fans come out to rock. Here's a young aspiring drummer jamming out to the end of 'Feels Like The First Time.'

After the show in Bad Brückenau on Saturday, Foreigner headed to Eupen, Belgium for a show on Sunday at the Eupen Music Marathon. Then it was off to Luxembourg City, Luxembourg and a well deserved day off before playing a show at the Den Atelier on Tuesday. Foreigner returned to Germany for the last three shows of the German Tour, starting with the show in Stuttgart for the Killesberg Open Air.
Here's a glimpse of what it is like taking the stage with Foreigner as Kelly brings out a camera during the opening performance of 'Long Long Way From Home.'

Foreigner returned to action at the NDR Radio Festival on Wednesday, part of the Kiel Woche Festival in Kiel, a huge sailing event that attracts over 10,000 people each year. From there it was another busy weekend with the Brauerei Open Air in Wiehl on Friday and the Bad Brueckenau Open Air in Bad Brückenau on Saturday. From there they will make a stop off in Belgium and Luxembourg before returning to Germany in July. Here are some loyal fans showing their love at the show on Saturday!
Foreigner Fans - All in a row. From Bad Brückenau.
Despite a cloudy morning and thunderstorm forecasts, the show was blessed with beautiful weather and a great crowd... And what a view!

After the show, the band was able to do another Meet & Greet, shown here at a room in the Kurhaus with some of our German friends who have been regular contributors to the Foreigner forum/board for many years. The band was grateful to be able to thank them in person for their unwavering support over the years.

With 4 shows in a row, there weren't too many behind the scenes clips to share, so here's some more from the stage at the Tollwood Festival in Munich.
Here's an acoustic performance of 'Say You Will.'
Brian Tichy, the newest addition to the lineup, adds his personal "touch" to the greatest show on earth. Just another one of the many reasons for everyone everywhere to see Foreigner live. And now, heeeeere's Brian!!

Foreigner kicked off the German tour at the Abenberg Castle, but with 4 shows in as many days, there was little time for rest. From there it was on to the Parkbühne Open Air in Leipzig, the Zitadelle in Berlin, and wrapping up the long weekend at the Tollwood Festival in Munich. Here they are saying good night to Munich.

The Band departed St. Petersburg Wednesday afternoon and headed off to Germany, where they will be playing 11 shows in 17 days, with a show in Belgium and Luxembourg in between. The first show is Thursday, June 18th at the Burg Abenberg Open Air. What better way to start the Germany Tour than rocking out in a castle!? In honor of the occasion, the band wanted to add another song to the setlist. Here is a clip of them rehearsing 'That Was Yesterday' before the show in Abenberg.
And yes, that is Kelly eating chips while singing!
