Foreigner‘s timeless anthems continue to rock the charts with ten multi-platinum albums, sixteen Top 30
hits and album sales now exceeding 75 million copies. For the first time ever, Foreigner will present all their
hits with a 58 -piece orchestra and a 60-piece choir with Foreigner with the 21st Century Symphony
Orchestra & Chorus available on April 27th, 2018 via earMUSIC.
In May 2017, the band performed two sold-out shows in Lucerne, Switzerland, together with the 21st Century
Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, conducted by Ernst van Tiel.
Orchestra & Chorus represents this year-long collaboration between Foreigner founding member and lead
guitarist Mick Jones and GRAMMY nominated composing/arranging team, Dave Eggar & Chuck Palmer,
exploring the deep symphonic potential of these classic and iconic songs.
Dave Eggar, Juilliard protégé and cellist/pianist/composer, and Chuck Palmer, producer/writer/percussionist, have toured, performed and recorded with artists such as Paul Simon, James Taylor, Patti Smith, Coldplay and many more.
Mick Jones: “I could never have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner 40 years ago, that we’d still be
touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later. Dave Eggar and Chuck
Palmer’s orchestral arrangements have shown us a new symphonic dimension of our music, which I hope our
fans will enjoy.”
Foreigner are: Mick Jones (guitar), Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Tom Gimbel
(rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums)
