Following their 40th anniversary tour in 2017 and three selected shows in May 2018, Foreigner are again coming to Germany. With timeless hymns like »I Want To Know What Love Is«, »Cold As Ice«, »Waiting For A Girl Like You«, »Hot Blooded« and »Juke Box Hero«, Foreigner continue to rock the charts with ten multi-Platinum albums, sixteen top 30 hits, and album sales to date topping 80 million copies. Foreigner have now reinterpreted these hits for a European orchestral concert tour.
The concert series offers a unique opportunity for fans to experience the band’s most popular hits with the full symphonic sound of Russia’s renowned IP Orchestra. The concert series was inspired by the successful Billboard No 1 and German Top 10 album »Foreigner with the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus«, which was released on 27 April 2018. The album went straight to the top of the Billboard Classical Albums Chart and was also streamed and broadcast nationwide by PBS. Foreigner’s recently completed orchestral tour included sold-out performances in the USA, Australia and New Zealand, a return to the KKL Luzern in Switzerland and a packed auditorium at the legendary Sydney Opera House.
About the upcoming tour with orchestra, Mick Jones says: »When Foreigner was founded 40 years ago, I never would have dreamed that all those years later we would still be touring the world and playing the music we love. This orchestral production has shown us a new symphonic dimension of our music, which our fans will hopefully also enjoy.« In 2017, Foreigner celebrated the band’s 40th anniversary with a world tour through amphitheatres and arenas. The group was awarded platinum singles for the digital sales of »I Want To Know What Love Is« and »Juke Box Hero«, proving that it is still popular in the era of downloads and streaming. Foreigner’s songs have had nearly 500 million views on YouTube, and the band’s recordings are constantly used in films and TV shows around the world.
