Biography

With over 80 million albums sold worldwide, Foreigner is easily one of the world’s most successful hard rock acts of all time. Their memorable performance at GMM2011 convinced even the biggest sceptics and proved that the band’s classic hits have stood the test of time. Nowadays Mick Jones is the only remaining member of the line-up that forced a worldwide breakthrough with the band’s first two albums ‘Foreigner’ (1977) and ‘Double Vision’ (1978). Still, the amiable guitarist has always been able to surround himself with excellent musicians who know how to keep the legend alive and kicking. Forty years after the band’s inception, tracks like ‘Cold as Ice’, ‘Hot Blooded’, ‘That Was Yesterday’ and ‘Say You Will’ are as spine-chilling as ever.
