Foreigner At Capitol One Bank Theatre 5/16

Live Nation presents rock sensation Foreigner at the Capital One Bank Theatre at Westbury on Friday, May 16 at 8 p.m. Foreigner will be performing their Top 10 hits including "Hot Blooded," "Urgent," "Feels Like the First Time," and "I Want To Know What Love Is."

Foreigner is a rock band that was formed in 1976 in New York City by Mick Jones, former King Crimson member Ian McDonald and vocalist Lou Gramm. Foreigner has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide including over 36 million in the United States.

Foreigner is known for their blend of hard rock, pop, and arena rock 'n roll. Since the 1970s, Foreigner has been one of the few rock bands to carry their success into the 1980s, with multiple hit singles including "Feels Like the First Time," "Cold As Ice," and "Long, Long Way From Home." Foreigner's self-titled debut album sold over four million copies in the U.S. The band had an even stronger follow-up release with their best selling album Double Vision, with hit singles "Hot Blooded" and its title track. The album stayed in the Top Ten for six months.

Foreigner released their third album, titled Head Games, which during this time bassist, Ed Gagliardi, was replaced by Englishman Rick Wills. At the end of the tour the band would lose keyboardist Al Greenwood and co-founder Ian McDonald.

Foreigner's next two albums, 4 and Agent Provocateur, brought them success into the 80s, with singles like "Urgent," "I Want to Know What Love Is," "Juke Box Hero" and "Waiting for a Girl Like You."

In 2007, Foreigner joined Def Leppard and Styx on tour. They also toured extensively in their own right in 2007 - the 30th anniversary of the founding of the band.
