Two more of America’s most legendary rock bands will bring their North American tour to Kansas City in summer 2017. Foreigner and Cheap Trick, who have sold nearly 100 million albums combined, will perform at Starlight Theatre on Tuesday, August 15. They’ll be joined by special guest Jason Bonham who will bring the music of Led Zeppelin to complete a memorable night of rock ‘n’ roll.
Universally hailed as one of the most popular rock bands in the world, Foreigner returns to the Starlight stage for the first time since 2014. Counting 10 multi-platinum albums, 16 Top 30 hits and album sales of 75 million among their credits, Foreigner has captivated audiences with classic power ballads since 1976. Now, more than 40 years after their founding, Foreigner continues to captivate audiences, selling out shows and introducing new generations of fans to the memorable sounds of their rock era, including such enduring hits as “Juke Box Hero,” “Feels Like the First Time,” “Urgent” and many more.
To coincide with the tour, Foreigner will release a celebratory 40th anniversary album, 40 – Forty Hits From Forty Years. As the title suggests, the album will feature 40 tracks including original hits, several songs from the band’s current lineup with Kelly Hansen on vocals, and two new songs, “The Flame Still Burns” and “Give My Life for Love.”
Joining Foreigner on tour is Cheap Trick, rock’s power-pop originator. The group forged its rightful place among the world’s most accomplished rock bands with a timeless sound that blends elements of pop, punk and metal. Since the release of a self-titled debut album in 1977, Cheap Trick has sold more than 20 million records, performed more than 5,000 times and maintained an infectious, ever-youthful sound. Spring 2016 was especially momentous for Cheap Trick as the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and released its 17th album, Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello.
