    For the first time ever, Foreigner’s current and old lineup will hit the road together. The special tour, aptly dubbed “Double Vision: Then and Now,” is comprised of four US shows in November. The iconic rock outfit is confirmed to play in Los Angeles; Rancho Mirage, California; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Uncasville, Connecticut; and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    Foreigner’s current lineup features Mick Jones (lead guitar), Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums). They’ll be joined by five members from the past who helped put the group on the map — singer Lou Gramm, drummer Dennis Elliott, keyboardist Al Greenwood, guitarist/saxophonist Ian McDonald and bassist Rick Wills. (Founding bassist Ed Gagliardi was fired in 1979 and passed away in 2014).

    For fans, Double Vision promises not only new and familiar faces, but concerts packed with catalog selections from across Foreigner’s lengthy, historic career. These unique dates follow Foreigner’s “Juke Box Heroes Tour”, as well as a New York concert featuring a reunion of the band’s classic lineup.
