Foreigner Announces First Ever Orchestral Album and Companion Tour

I Want To Know What Love Is, Cold As Ice, Waiting For A Girl Like You, Hot Blooded, Juke Box Hero.FOREIGNER‘s timeless anthems continue to rock the charts with ten multi-platinum albums, sixteen Top 30 hits and album sales now exceeding 75 million copies. For the first time ever, FOREIGNER will present all their hits with a 58 -piece orchestra and a 60-piece choir with FOREIGNERwith the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus available on April 27th, 2018 via earMUSIC.

In May 2017, the band performed two sold-out shows in Lucerne, Switzerland, together with the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, conducted by Ernst van Tiel. FOREIGNER with the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus represents this year-long collaboration betweenFOREIGNER founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones and GRAMMY nominated composing/arranging team, Dave Eggar & Chuck Palmer, exploring the deep symphonic potential of these classic and iconic songs. Dave Eggar, Juilliard protégé and cellist/pianist/composer, and Chuck Palmer, producer/writer/percussionist, have toured, performed and recorded with artists such as Paul Simon, James Taylor, Patti Smith, Coldplay and many more.

For the US release, the band expect to announce a collaboration with a major broadcast network for a one hour version of the concert to coincide with the album release. The product offering will include CD, digital, a double vinyl release and will feature a special CD/DVD digipak only available at Walmart in the US and Canada.

The two sold-out shows in Switzerland have also inspired a US orchestral concert series  which kicks off in St. Augustine, FL on March 16, 2018.Together with The Dave Eggar Orchestra, FOREIGNER provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for US fans to experience the band’s most popular hits in full orchestral sound.

Mick Jones: I could never have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner 40 years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later.  Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer’s orchestral arrangements have shown us a new symphonic dimension of our music, which I hope our fans will enjoy.”
