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.
