We have bad news, Jukebox Heroes.
Foreigner is holding his “historic farewell tour” with Loverboy from March 24 to September 30.
66 more shows, and then the hot-blooded classic rockers “I want to know what love is” hang up for good.
Before they leave, fans will have the opportunity to catch Mick Jones and co. live in NY (where they got their start!) and NJ.
On July 28, Foreigner will land at the Darien Center in New York’s Darien Lake Amphitheater.
After that, they’ll bring “Cold As Ice” and all of their other massive hits to Saratoga Springs, NY’s Saratoga Performing Arts Center on August 1, Wantagh, NY’s Jones Beach Theater on August 2, Syracuse, NY’s St. Joseph’s Amphitheater on September 2, and finally Holmdel, NJ’s PNC Bank Arts Center on September 3.
Given the historic nature of this tour, tickets are surprisingly inexpensive.
In fact, at press time, we’ve found some for as little as $30 before fees on Vivid Seats.
No, you don’t experience “Double Vision” – you can really see the legendary band at prices that make sense on their last tour.
