Book On Line: www.ticketmaster.ie More than 30 years after releasing their first multi-platinum album, Foreigner’s music resonates globally across generations, thanks to an impressive run of 14 Top 20 Billboard Chart hits, including worldwide number one hit “I Want To Know What Love Is”, “Waiting For A Girl Like You”, “Cold As Ice”, “Urgent”, “Double Vision”, “Feels Like The First Time”, “Dirty White Boy”, “Head Games” and video game staples such as “Hot Blooded” and “Juke Box Hero”, together with album sales that exceed 70 million. Foreigner’s 2010 United In Rock tour with Styx electrified audiences and established the group in its rightful place as one of the top touring attractions of the year in the US. Their latest studio release, ‘Can’t Slow Down’, broke many Classic Rock sales records and spawned two Top 20 singles on US radio. ‘Can’t Slow Down’ was the band’s first album of new music in more than 15 years. Mick Jones, the band’s founder and legendary songwriter/guitarist, produced the new album with Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith and Buckcherry). It entered the Billboard Top 200 in the Top 30 on its first week of release and it is the first full length album to feature Foreigner’s revamped lineup: Mick Jones, singer Kelly Hansen, bassist Jeff Pilson, guitarist Tom Gimbel and keyboardist Michael Bluestein. They will be joined on tour by Mark Schulman on drums. Foreigner’s depth of broadcast-friendly hits ensures the band’s constant presence in the Top 15 most played artists on US Classic Rock radio. The band gets more airplay at this important format than Bon Jovi, Def Leppard and Bruce Springsteen, all but a handful of current touring artists. Foreigner’s live album ‘Can’t Slow Down – When It’s Live’ was released in November 2010. Their next album is due for release this summer. Live DVD/Blu-ray ‘Rockin’ At The Ryman’ to be released through earMUSIC on April 18th.
