Foreigner At The Chip – A “Must-See” Event
The music of Foreigner is anything but foreign! Ask anyone you know whether they’re familiar with any of the band’s classic hits such as “Urgent,” “Hot Blooded,” “Waiting for a Girl Like You,” “Juke Box Hero,” “I Want to Know What Love Is” or those songs that practically every guy knows by heart, “Cold As Ice” or better yet, “Head Games” and almost every time the answer’s going to be YES!
It’s true – Foreigner is a legendary rock band. And what better place for a band of this caliber to perform than at the legendary Buffalo Chip Campground! Performing once only in the evening of August 7th, this is one show that’s sure to be a party to remember. Don’t wait. Confirm your plans to attend now if you plan to be at the 2007 Sturgis Rally. You can still reserve admissions even if you’re not staying at the Buffalo Chip Campground so do it now.
Thirty years and still going strong!
Many of you reading this grew up with Foreigner, a band that had its beginnings in the mid 1970’s and successfully transitioned their music into the 80’s. That one success alone is pretty impressive since many of the other popular 70’s bands weren’t able to make that transition.
During their long 30-year history, Foreigner has recorded over 20 albums. The band’s debut album sold more than 4-million copies and remained in the Top 20 for a full year! Success continued with the release of their second album with sales topping 5-million. Albums #3 and #4 continued to produce hit after hit and only in the early 90’s did success start to elude the band after members Mick Jones and Lou Gramm started focusing on solo efforts. Fortunately it didn’t take long before the band reunited and Mick and Lou were back performing with Bruce Turgon and Jeff Jacobs.
The current line up
Now consisting of Mick Jones playing guitar and keyboards, Jason Bonham on drums, Kelly Hansen on vocals, Jeff Jacobs on keyboards, Jeff Pilson on bass and Thom Gimble playing saxophone, Foreigner continues to stand apart from the crowd, making appearances not for the money but simply because they truly enjoy playing to their fans.
Singing everything from fast-paced rock songs to slow-paced ballads, Foreigner continues to fill the house. This year’s schedule is chock-full of appearances throughout the US and that alone is testament to Foreigner’s timeless appeal.
So take a well-deserved break from the 2007 Sturgis Rally and come listen as Foreigner belts out their classic melodies this August 7th at 10:30 pm at the Buffalo Chip Campground! Remember, at a Foreigner show, every time feels like the first time! www.buffalochip.com
