UK DATES RESCHEDULED FOR MAY 2018
FOREIGNER have rescheduled their four UK dates to May 2018, following unexpectedscheduling issues earlier this year.
The legendary band will perform in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and for the first timeever, London’s esteemed Royal Albert Hall. The dates and venues are as follows:
Sat 12th May 2018 Manchester, O2 Apollo
Sun 13th May 2018 Glasgow, Clyde Auditorium
Tue 15th May 2018 Birmingham, Symphony Hall
Wed 16th May 2018 London, Royal Albert Hall
This special series of concerts will be a true homecoming for founding member and lead guitarist, Mick Jones, where fans will see why it Feels Like The First Time, when FOREIGNER’s performances include their unforgettable anthems I Want To Know What Love Is, Juke Box Hero, Waiting For A Girl Like You, Cold As Ice, Feels Like The First Time, HotBlooded, Urgent and That Was Yesterday.
Says Mick Jones, “I never could have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner forty years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these yearslater. I can’t express the gratitude I feel when fans share stories of how our songs have been woven into their milestones and memories over the years.”
As for playing the legendary Royal Albert Hall for the first time, says Mick, “Playing at The Royal Albert Hall has been a childhood dream, as one of my earliest memories was attending a Gustav Holst concert, mesmerized by Sir Malcolm Sargent conducting ‘The Planet Suite.’ To perform with my band at this iconic venue decades later is a true honour.
