Foreigner announce 2023 farewell tour dates with Loverboy

One of the greatest rock music of the 70s and 80s, Foreignerare ready to call it a career and announce plans for their 2023 Farewell Tour.

The veteran band that gave us such classic hits as “Juke Box Hero,” “Hot Blooded,” “Urgent” and “Cold as Ice” will be hitting the road for one final tour beginning July 6 at Atlanta’s Ameris Bank Amphitheater. Dates for the race will be carried over to the Sept. 3 finale in Holmdel, New Jersey. Check the bottom of this post for all dates, cities and venues.

And as if that weren’t enough to make this concert experience, ahem, urgent, you’ll be thrilled to know that other ’80s hitmakers Loverboy will join them on the run and make sure you love every minute of it for sure.

Founder Mick Jones said: “Many years ago I wrote a song called ‘Feels Like The First Time’ and today we launch one final world tour. We will present a show that I know will have the same enthusiasm as our very first performances .The tour starts this summer in America and we hope to get to all the places we’ve played in the last several years.While I’m sure our fans will have mixed feelings about the end of the road for the band, I know that our shows will delight audiences everywhere.”

Foreigner vocalist Kelly Hansen adds, “The time has come. We’ve more or less lived our lives on the road for almost eighteen years. We’ve always strived to give you our best, and we intend to end this the same way. Foreigner has a brilliant and increasingly demanding catalog of songs to sing, and I refuse to give them less than they deserve. So we’re going to finish strong. I want to make it very clear how grateful and appreciative we are to our audiences all over the world that has supported this band. I’m sure there may be occasions when we will do some special shows but I think the time is coming for us to live off the road. Thank you very much to all of you!”

“I remember how cool the last time we toured with Foreigner was in 1982. We played massive stadiums—New Orleans, Kansas City, Day On the Green in Oakland, JFK in Philly—and we’re back together, 41 years later. . It’s going to be the Tour of Summer ’23!” said Paul Dean of Loverboy.

Loverboy frontman Mike Reno adds: “It’s not very often you get a chance to play on the same stage as one of your all-time favorite bands … and how many hit songs can you play on the same stage every night in 2023 Summer tour?…..it’s going to be amazing….I can’t wait.”
