Foreigner to play Lawrenceburg Event Center

Courtesy Foreigner

One of the most popular rock acts in the world comes to the Lawrenceburg Event Center stage. Catch multi-platinum recording artists Foreigner on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 8PM.

Half British and half American, the original lineup was comprised of Mick Jones, Ian McDonald, drummer Dennis Elliot, singer Lou Gramm, keyboardist Al Greenwood and bassist Ed Gagliardi. The band was picked up by Atlantic Records and after a year of recording and remixing the debut album, ‘Foreigner’ was released in March 1977. The album is punctuated by classic Foreigner singles like ‘Feels Like the Very First Time,’ ‘Cold as Ice,’ and ‘Long, Long Way from Home.’

Propelled by the success of their first album, Foreigner’s sophomore album ‘Double Vision’ followed in 1978 to rave reviews. Singles like ‘Waiting For a Girl Like You,’ ‘Hot Blooded,’ and ‘Juke Box Hero’ received significant airplay.

It will be a nostalgic night to remember, hearing so many rock anthems which played as the soundtrack to many of our more youthful years. The Lawrenceburg Event Center is only a 45-minute drive from Cincinnati, so there is really no good excuse to miss out!
