Details of Foreigner and the Ticket Luck value
Foreigner is a hard rock band formed in New York City in 1976 by veteran musicians Mick Jones and ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald, along with then unknown vocalist Lou Gramm (Louis Grammatico). Foreigner has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide (including over 30 million in the USA alone).
The band is led by British journeyman rocker Mick Jones (former member of Nero and the Gladiators, Spooky Tooth, and The Leslie West Band) who in early 1976 met with ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald and formed Foreigner with Lou Gramm, Dennis Elliott, Al Greenwood, and Ed Gagliardi as a sextet. Jones came up with the name from the fact that he, McDonald, and Elliott were British, while Gramm, Greenwood, and Gagliardi were Americans.
The band's debut album Foreigner sold more than four million copies in the United States and stayed in the Top 20 for a year with such hits as "Feels Like the First Time", "Cold as Ice", and "Long Long Way From Home". Their second album, Double Vision, topped their previous selling five million records and spawning "Hot Blooded", and title track "Double Vision". Their third album, Head Games, which was referred to by Gramm as their "grainiest" album, was also successful due to the thunderous "Dirty White Boy" and another title track hit "Head Games".
1980 brought personnel changes so that now the band was a quartet and Rick Wills played bass. Foreigner's next album, aptly named 4, was their biggest hit containing "Jukebox Hero", "Waiting for a Girl Like You", and "Urgent". Their next album, Agent Provocateur, was released successfully in late 1984, and gave them their first and only #1 hit in 1985 (in US, UK, Australia, Norway, Sweden, etc.), "I Want to Know What Love Is", a gospel-inspired ballad backed by the New Jersey Mass Choir. In the late 1980s, Jones and Gramm each put out solo efforts and the band went on hiatus. But in 1987 Foreigner regrouped and released Inside Information; spawning hits such as "Say You Will" and "I Don't Want To Live Without you". But then, reportedly due to the egos of Gramm and Jones, the band dissolved again .
In 1990, Mick Jones reformed Foreigner with a new lead vocalist, Johnny Edwards. This edition of Foreigner released the album Unusual Heat in 1991. This was at the time their worst selling album and only climbed as high as #117 on the Billboard 200, although "Lowdown and Dirty" was a minor mainstream rock hit, reaching #4 on the chart.
By 1992, however, Lou Gramm rejoined Foreigner (bringing along with his Shadow King bandmate Bruce Turgon) and produced the band's second greatest hits album, "The Very Best and Beyond," which included three new songs. Three years later Foreigner released what was supposed to be the band's comeback album, Mr. Moonlight. This album fared even worse than Unusual Heat, due to the rising popularity of alternative and grunge rock, although the ballad "Until the End of Time" was a minor hit, hitting #42 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was to be the last time to date that Foreigner charted on a Billboard singles chart of any kind.
In 2001, the Warner Music Group selected Foreigner and 4 to be among the first group of albums from their catalog to be remastered, enhanced and released in the new DVD Audio format. In 2002, the 25th Anniversary Year brought affirmation of the enduring respect for Foreigner recordings with Rhino Entertainment re-issuing the 1977 - 1981 multi-platinum albums in special enhanced formats. Foreigner, Double Vision, Head Games and 4 received the loving attention of Rhino's staff and bloom again with new photos and liner notes and bonus tracks of previously unreleased material. New Greatest Hits albums were also produced in the U.S. and in Europe. The U.S. version reached #80 on the Billboard 200 Album chart.
In 2003, Gramm again left Foreigner to embark on another solo career and formed the Lou Gramm Band. Jones, the only remaining original member of Foreigner, decided to reform the band once again, and hired Kelly Hansen to replace Gramm as lead vocalist for the group in 2005. Hard rock legends, drummer Jason Bonham and bassist Jeff Pilson have also joined the band. Pilson also joins the group as a producer.
Foreigner joined Def Leppard along with Styx on tour in 2007. Their most recent album, Extended Versions, features the new line-up playing all their classic hits live in concert in one of the most "studio like, clean sounding" live album recordings produced. They are currently working on a new album which will include a mix of both new songs as well as new takes on their old material.
Foreigner is a famous rock band that was originally founded by the greats like Mick Jones and Ian McDonald. The band came into existence back in 1976, and since then they've sold well over seventy million units worldwide, out of which more than 37.5 million records were sold only in United States. The band released its self titled album in 1977 that featured hits like Long Long Way from Home, Feels like the First Time, and Cold as Ice. The album turned out to be a great success, and it not only managed to sell more than four million copies in United States, it also remained in top 20 for a year.
Foreigner received even much bigger response as soon as they released their second studio album, which did even more business than their debut album. The album sold five million records and spawned hits like Double Vision and Hot Blooded. Their third album followed in the path of its predecessors and turned out to be a mainstream success. After the release of their third album, the band has so far released six more studio albums. The group keeps on performing live frequently, and since they are out on the road around this time of the year, it's about time to get your Foreigner tickets.
Theatrical maneuvers like the oft_employed farce require much more than an able cast; an inexplicably impossible situation, a skilful exploitation of the situation, & a receptive audience capable of guzzling down even those absurd situations. The Foreigner, written by Larry Shue, exploits farce to the fullest extent. The play successfully creates light comedy that has elicited gales of laughter from the audience, making it one of USA's most well_established off_Broadway productions. Larry Shue died in a plane crash in 1985, a year after the play first premiered, but his death has not dampened the continued growth of The Foreigner, which has become a major commercial success.
The comedy is set in Tilghman County, Georgia, where Betty Meeks runs an unstaffed fishing lodge. An old friend of Meeks, Staff Sergeant Froggy LeSueur, visits the lodge on his three_day annual trip to teach the use of explosives at a nearby US Army Camp. LeSueur also brings along Englishman Charlie Baker, an unbearably shy person who can't converse with the people properly because of his timid & withdrawn personality. As way of explanation, Froggy claims that Charlie is from a far_off exotic country, & the language is foreign to him, thereby explaining his mute nature. This only excites the curiosity of Meeks. Meanwhile, other visitors on the lodge hear of Charlie's inability to comprehend English, & thus converse freely in his presence about their most sordid affairs. This practice gives Charlie an insight into their deepest secrets. These include the affairs of Catherine Simms, who is an introspective millionaire heiress & a spoiled Southern belle; & her mysterious fiance, Reverend David Marshall Lee, who is often away for eons, much to her consternation. Charlie learns of the skeletons in the closets of the engaged Atlanta couple. The pregnant Catherine's alliance to the seemingly upright Reverend is rather reluctant. Catherine's mentally_challenged slow brother Ellard attempts to teach Charlie English. Charlie also learns of the menacing intentions of racist county property inspector Owen Musser, who plots to convert the lodge into a meeting_place for Ku Klux Klansmen after Meeks' ouster. The situations become all the more ridiculous by the minute, culminating in a truly spectacular climax where Klansmen run haywire as things spiral out of control for the guests with bad intentions.
Larry Shue enjoyed short_lived success as a playwright. The Nerd is his other famous work. Shue met a premature death at the age of 39 in a plane crash in Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. But this wasn't before he had seen The Foreigner's first premiere in Milwaukee on November 1, 1984, directed by Jerry Zaks. The Foreigner then ran for 686 performances at New York City Astor Place Theater, winning great acclaim. The show became a staple at regional theaters, & transformed into a bankable hit. 2004's brilliant revival starred Matthew Broderick (of Godzilla & Ferris Bueller's Day Off fame), Kevin Cahoon, Frances Sternhagen, Neal Huff & Byron Jennings. Scott Schwartz is the director, while lights & costume design are done by Pat Collins & David Murin respectively.
The show's two year off_Broadway run catapulted it into the limelight. The Foreigner walked away with two Obie Awards, & scooped up Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best New American Play & Best Off_Broadway Production. The latter awards cemented the fact that not only the target general audience found the play worthy of a cheer, but it even won many votes with unsympathetic hard_nosed critics. The Foreigner was derided in some quarters for its ludicrous situations & outrageous settings. Others lauded the director for giving the material enough working space to develop the hilarity of a ridiculous situation to an extent that the climax brought about the desired effect. The length is 2 hours & 40 minutes, with one intermission. The Foreigner's first act was, by common consensus, slightly stagnant. Yet the second act's over_the_top action more than made up for a slack start. Broderick's natural British accent, his almost eternal little_boyish devilry, & the enviable ability to keep a poker face in the most ridiculous of situations won many fans. Jennings' perfectly believable LeSueur & Sternhagen's adorable trusting Meeks stand out as performances with some powerful creative craft.
The Foreigner is a beautiful exponent of the fine theatrical art of farce. Theater_goers have enjoyed the play's off_Broadway runs for over 25 years, & its magical entertainment value still draws huge crowds. Fans wishing to have a jolly time in a light_hearted atmosphere should buy The Foreigner tickets before they disappear off the shelves.
