FOREIGNER HEADLINES AT TRUMP TAJ MAHAL

Foreigner
****
Having entertained fans and audiences with their classic rock sound for over 30 years, Foreigner will perform in the Xanadu Theater at Trump Taj Mahal on Saturday, August 30 at 8 p.m. Foreigner’s current line-up features veteran vocalist Kelly Hansen, Jason Bonham, Jeff Pilson, Jeff Jacobs, Tom Gimbel, and the highly underrated, indefatigable guitarist and founding member Mick Jones, along with pianist Michael Bluestein. The band currently has a new greatest hits anthology that was released on July 15, titled No End in Sight: The Very Best of Foreigner. The anthology includes all of their greatest hits plus some new live recordings and a new studio track, “Too Late”, which will be the first new track since 1994's “Mr. Moonlight,” and the first recorded output of the new lineup. “Too Late” was released as a single on June 17, 2008. Foreigner celebrated their 25th Anniversary in 2002 with a U.S. tour. During that anniversary year, the band, along with Rhino Entertainment, reissued their 1977-1981 multi-platinum albums in special enhanced formats. “Foreigner (1977),” “Double Vision (1978),” “Head Games (1979)” and “4 (1981),” were resurrected with new photos, liner notes and bonus tracks of previously unreleased material. When “4” was originally released in 1981, it produced Foreigner’s top ranking single, “Waiting For A Girl Like You,” which stayed at #2 for ten weeks of the five months it was on the national charts. “4” is one of the most successful rock albums of all time. In 1982, Foreigner released their first Greatest Hits album, “Records,” which continues to be a popular seller today. Foreigner’s fifth album, “Agent Provocateur (1984),” produced their only #1 hit, a gospel-inspired ballad backed by the New Jersey Mass Choir, “I Want To Know What Love Is.” After releasing “Inside Information” in 1987, the band went on hiatus while Mick Jones and Lou Gramm went on with solo projects. Reunited in 1992, Lou and Mick wrote three new songs for the next generation Greatest Hits album, “The Very Best and Beyond.” Then in 1993, after seven years with no new releases, the band reformed again with Mick, Lou and Bruce Turgon on bass and Jeff Jacobs on keyboards. An album of new material, “Mr. Moonlight,” was released. This album also produced another top ten single, “Until The End of Time.” In 2001, the Warner Music Group selected “Foreigner” and “4” to be among the first group of albums from their catalog to be remastered, enhanced and released in the new DVD audio format.
