Foreigner Farewell Tour coming to Moose Jaw on May 13

Foreigner is performing their “Penultimate Tour” being billed as their “Historic Farewell Tour” in Moose Jaw on May 13 at Moose Jaw Events Centre

Shouting out to Boomers and Gen X, well everyone born before 2024 who loves great music.  Foreigner is performing their “Penultimate Tour” being billed as their “Historic Farewell Tour” in Moose Jaw on May 13 at Moose Jaw Events Centre. 

Break out the tissues as we relive those pivotal musical moments they provided so we could fall in love.

In 1976, Michael Leslie Jones, commonly known as Mick Jones, wrote a tune and liked what he heard. He then needed a band. He started up and Foreigner was born. Almost 50 years later, the band is still going strong. 

But like every other good time enjoyed, all good things must come to an end. The band has toured Europe and North America playing out to thousands of devoted fans. 2024 will be the band’s final year of touring together as they will be disbanding at the end of this year, capping off their legendary 48-year career as one of classic rock’s most iconic bands.

Let’s meet the band! Mick Jones lead and rhythm guitars, keyboards, backing and lead vocals (1976–present). Kelly Hanson lead vocals, percussion (2005–present). Jeff Pilson bass, backing vocals, keyboards (2004–present). Michael Bluestein keyboards, backing vocals (2008–present). Bruce Watson lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals (2011–present). Chris Frazier drums, percussion (2012–present). Luis Maldonado rhythm and lead guitars, backing vocals, bass (2021–present). Together they have created and maintained a sound all their own.

Classic rock and band ballads have led the group to be nominated for induction into the 2024 Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame. Voting ends April 26th, so follow the link. Cast your vote for Foreigner here.

From their glass-shattering break-out beginnings, the band has continued to tour to sold-out crowds everywhere. 2024, the band will have a full slate of U.S. shows which will continue the band’s Historic Farewell Tour with Styx and John Waite on board for the summer tour dates.  This year will also include a Canadian tour along with two final residencies in Las Vegas at the Venetian Theater. The band announced in late 2022 that they’ll be hanging it up and retiring on a high note at the end of 2024.
