Foreigner has announced what former member Ian McDonald recently told us would happen -- a reunion show of the original line-up on August 4th at The Sturgis Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, South Dakota.
McDonald, Lou Gramm, Dennis Elliott, Al Greenwood and Rick Wills will join Mick Jones and the current members of the band as they did for a few shows on last year's 40th anniversary tour.
Jones says, “It’s been incredible to have Lou, Dennis, Al, Ian and Rick join us for some surprise appearances throughout the past few years. It always brings back special memories. But now, for the first time, we are letting our fans know we’ll be making history together at The Buffalo Chip on August 4th with a Foreigner reunion concert, and we hope they’ll come on down to Sturgis and join us!"
Elliott says Jones invited him and Greenwood to join them on stage this Friday night at Jones Beach on Long Island, New York. Elliott tells us he and Al are "talking about whether we're going to be able to do that."
Ian McDonald says recent Foreigner reunions have gone well:
