Foreigner Announces Retirement Tour With Viral Video

Foreigner is the latest act to announce a farewell tour.

Dubbed The Historic Farewell Tour, it starts on July 6th in Alpharetta, Georgia (outside Atlanta) at the Ameris Bank Amphitheatre with shows currently through September 3rd in the New York City suburb of Holmdel, New Jersey. They will bring the tour to Pine Knob on August 30th

Band founder and guitarist Mick Jones says, “Many years ago, I wrote a song called ‘Feels Like The First Time’ and today we are launching one last worldwide tour. We will be presenting a show that I know will have the same enthusiasm as our very first appearances. The tour will start this summer in America and we hope to get to every place that we have played over 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 our shows are going to delight audiences everywhere.”

Loverboy will open the tour and all dates can be found at ForeignerOnline.com. Tickets go on sale on November 18th at LiveNation.com.

Foreigner is on tour until then with a stop in Tampa set for tomorrow (Tuesday).
