FOREIGNER Reunites With Former Members LOU GRAMM, AL GREENWOOD And IAN MCDONALD In Wantagh, New York; Video Streaming

Last night (July 20th), one of rock’s most desired reunions took place when original Foreigner members Lou Gramm, Al Greenwood, and Ian McDonald joined the band on stage at the Northwell Health Jones Beach Theatre, New York for a memorable rendition of some of Foreigner’s biggest hits.

Founding member Mick Jones has invited original members of the band to join the band on stage throughout the 40th Anniversary tour, and more surprise appearances are expected during the US leg of the tour.

Says Mick Jones, “It was great to have Lou, Al and Ian join us on stage last night, and certainly brought back some special memories. All the original guys are out there playing live shows and working on studio projects. A performance by the entire original band for a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction next year would be a great way to cap off our 40th Anniversary celebrations.”
