“I Want To Know What Love Is.” “Cold As Ice.” “Hot Blooded.” “Juke Box Hero.”  

FOREIGNER, the band behind these classic and iconic songs, is turning 40 this year and they’re bringing their friends along for the year-long celebration.  

First up is a mammoth worldwide tour, presented by Live Nation, set to launch in Syracuse, NY on July 11th. For the US shows, Foreigner will be alongside Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Cheap Trick — who are also celebrating 40 years since the release of their self-titled debut album -- and special guest Jason Bonham who will be bringing the music of Led Zeppelin to great night of rock ’n’ roll.   

“I never could have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner forty years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later,” says founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones. “I can’t express the gratitude I feel when fans share stories of how our songs have been woven into their milestones and memories over the years. This summer we are going to celebrate these songs, and I can’t imagine a better group of friends to share this monumental tour with, than Cheap Trick and Jason Bonham who are sure to make it a true tribute to the everlasting power of rock and roll." 

Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2016, CHEAP TRICK is undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. They have performed over 5,000 shows spanning four decades and have sold 20 million records worldwide. CHEAP TRICK formed in 1974 and while they have evolved throughout the years, the band continues to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as "I Want You To Want Me," "Dream Police," and "Surrender" have cemented the group as one of America's top rock 'n' roll bands of all time. In 2016, CHEAP TRICK released its 17th studio collection, Bang Zoom Crazy…Hello 

“I was thrilled to hear Mick Jones wanted me to be involved in celebrating 40 years of Foreigner. I spent 3 years as their drummer and had a great time," says Jason Bonham. "Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience show will hit home run after home run with these timeless classics done to perfection. JBLZE started 7 years ago as a way to show my appreciation not only to my dad and the music of Led Zeppelin, but also to the fans themselves. With the amazing Cheap Trick along with the one and only Foreigner this is show not to be missed.” 

To coincide with the tour, FOREIGNER--Mick Jones (lead guitar), Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums)– will be releasing a celebratory 40th anniversary album that features forty FOREIGNER tracks throughout the years entitled 40 – Forty Hits From Forty Years (RHINO). This album is a comprehensive compilation of original hits and several tracks from the current lineup with Kelly Hansen on vocals including “Cant Slow Down,” “Too Late,” and the Top 20 AC hit “When It Comes To Love.” The album also features two new songs, “The Flame Still Burns,” and “Give My Life For Love,” a brand new song by Jones. Rhino is kicking off a year-long catalog promotion with the January 24th picture disc release of Head Games.  

Since the 1977 release of their first hit “Feels Like The First Time” and their self-titled debut album on Atlantic Records, FOREIGNER has been universally hailed as one of the world’s most popular rock acts with 10 multi-platinum albums, 16 Top 30 hits, and worldwide album sales exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems including “Juke Box Hero,” “Cold as Ice,” “Feels Like The First Time,” “Urgent,” “Head Games,” “Say You Will,” “Dirty White Boy,” “Long, Long Way From Home,” and the worldwide #1 hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” FOREIGNER continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game.  

Recent albums like Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits, and The Best of Foreigner 4 & More, recorded live from The Borgata, Atlantic City, both entered the Billboard Top 200 chart. Foreigner also featured strongly in every category in Billboard's recently released “Greatest of All Time” listing. Catalog sales often eclipse those of Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Def Leppard, Van Halen and most of their Classic Rock peers (Source: Nielsen SoundScan 2/11/16 - 2/3/16).

For almost forty years, Sammy Hagar has been one of rock music's most dynamic and prolific artists. From breaking into the industry with the seminal hard rock band Montrose, to his multiplatinum solo career to his ride as the front man of Van Halen, the “Red Rocker” has set the tone for some of the greatest rock anthems ever written with songs like "I Can't Drive 55," "Right Now," and "Why Can't This Be Love." He’s earned the highest respect of the music industry with a Grammy Award and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Van Halen and is currently on his fourth platinum run with the super group Chickenfoot. Along his journey, Hagar has also become a dedicated philanthropist, a New York Times best-selling author and auspicious entrepreneur. 

Hagar first burst onto the scene in San Francisco as the lead singer of Montrose. Following a string of eight solo albums culminating in several platinum efforts and hundreds of sold out concert appearances across the country, Hagar joined Van Halen in 1985 and took the band to unprecedented heights, including four consecutive No.1 albums before the band broke up in the midnineties. He later returned to Van Halen to lead a triumphant 2004 reunion tour. 

Aside from making his mark as a hit songwriter and lead vocalist, Hagar has played with a succession of legendary guitar players; from Ronnie Montrose and Neal Schon to Eddie Van Halen and Joe Satriani and his current group, The Circle, which also features former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson.

You wanted the best: Meet the biggest local KISS fans

KISS, a band with a massive worldwide following, will play Wright State’s Nutter Center on August 22. But the Dayton area holds a special place in Kiss lore.

So I went looking for some of the biggest fans in the KISS Army. It was here, on January 31, 1976, that singer and guitarist Paul Stanley looked out and saw a sold out Hara Arena with his band headlining. In that moment, according to multiple interviews, he believed his band had arrived.

It was around that same time that Dayton resident Dean Swann and members of his family became members of the KISS Army. While still living in Kentucky, his cousins would come over for summer visits where they would all become basement rock stars.

“I would rope them into doing Kiss concerts. We would try to do our own makeup. All of a sudden, all of the aluminum foil in the house and Christmas lights were gone,” Swann says.

Swann went on to make a living performing in theatres and playhouses both near and far for 14 years. The Kentucky transplant has been a part of productions in New York City, Miami, Dayton and as far away as Japan…and he credits KISS for planting the seed.

“I got into theater because I wanted to be in a rock band,” Swann remembers. “I wanted to have the effect on an audience that KISS had on me.”

His dedication to the theater paid off when he was asked to play the title role in an off-Broadway production of the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

“That was probably the closest I got in my professional theater career to being in a band. They taught me to do the (Hedwig) makeup. Just like KISS!” Swann laughs.

Since then, he’s has added “lead singer” to his long list of roles, having formed a real rock band that plays locally.

As a child, his cousins joined him for his first Kiss show in Lexington. Even a snow storm couldn’t damper his excitement of seeing “The Hottest Band in the World”.

“When you’re that age and you’ve seen these pictures of these guys, and then you see them live, it’s Star Wars on stage,” he says. “They looked 7 feet tall and they looked like superheroes.”

Swann says he’s been to 21 other KISS concerts since that first experience, but has never met any of the band members. When asked if he’d like to, he initially answers with an emphatic yes. But then he thinks more about it.

 “You know, people say you should never meet your heroes because you might get disappointed. So maybe not. It’s just the mystique,” he says.

“I think it’s better to leave them as those superheroes that I identified as a kid.”
