For­eigner Dou­ble Pass — per­form­ing Claude­lands Arena, Thurs­day 1 Novem­ber

Leg­endary rock band For­eigner will re­turn to New Zealand this Novem­ber to per­form one of their newly en­vis­aged or­ches­tral con­certs and we have a dou­ble pass up for grabs for you to take in their much an­tic­i­pated and sole Kiwi show and it’s right on your doorstep!

Fans and the cu­ri­ous from across the coun­try will be flock­ing to Claude­lands Arena to wit­ness the pro­lific rock­ers belt out all of their hits with an 18-piece or­ches­tral back­ing, led by cel­e­brated Canberra con­duc­tor Ken­neth Lampl. For­eigner favourites in­clud­ing Feels Like The First Time, Cold As Ice, Wait­ing For A Girl Like You, Ur­gent and the time­less #1 global smash I Want To Know What Love Is will bring au­di­ences to their feet.

At For­eigner’s core is founder and Song­writ­ers Hall of Fame mem­ber Mick Jones, the vi­sion­ary mae­stro whose stylis­tic song­writ­ing, in­deli­ble gui­tar hooks and multi-lay­ered tal­ents con­tinue to es­ca­late For­eigner’s in­flu­ence and guide the band to new hori­zons.

He re­formed the band af­ter a 2002 hia­tus and se­lected lead singer Kelly Hansen to help write an in­spired new chap­ter in the his­tory of For­eigner. Mick also brought in multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist Tom Gim­bel, bassist Jeff Pil­son, key­boardist Michael Bluestein, Bruce Wat­son on gui­tar and Chris Fra­zier on drums. An un­prece­dented new level of en­ergy led the group to a re-emer­gence of mu­sic that speaks to long-time For­eigner fans and younger gen­er­a­tions.

“I could never have imag­ined when I set out to cre­ate For­eigner 40 years ago, that we’d still be tour­ing around the world and per­form­ing the mu­sic we love all these years later”, said Mick Jones.

“Dave Eg­gar and Chuck Palmer’s or­ches­tral ar­range­ments have shown us a new sym­phonic di­men­sion of our mu­sic, which I hope our fans will en­joy.”

Do not miss this op­por­tu­nity to see one of the most cel­e­brated bands per­form all their hits in full or­ches­tral sound. Tick­ets from Tick­etek.
