With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, FOREIGNER are universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems, the band continues to rock the charts more than thirty years.
FOREIGNER’S popularity continues to soar, having taken over the US media in 2015 with recent music usage in shows like Orange Is the New Black, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and the films Pitch Perfect, and Magic Mike. FOREIGNER is sure to generate the same excitement in Europe and Israel this summer as they bring their enduring brand of rock and popularity across the sea.
“Our music has touched a lot of people worldwide,” says lead guitarist Mick Jones. “Unwittingly, we've weaved into the fabric of people's lives.”
At FOREIGNER’S core is founder and lead guitarist Mick Jones, the visionary maestro whose stylistic songwriting, indelible guitar hooks and multi-layered talents continue to escalate FOREIGNER’S influence, along with lead vocalist Kelly Hansen, bass guitarist Jeff Pilson and multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel.
In June 2013, Mick Jones was inducted to the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. A multi-talented and multi-dimensional “musician’s musician,” Jones has also written songs such as Bad Love with Eric Clapton and Dreamer with Ozzy Osbourne, and produced many albums for other name artists including Billy Joel’s Storm Front and Van Halen’s 5150 albums.
