Foreigner Kicks Off Farewell Tour
Foreigner officially kicked off their farewell tour. The first show was in Atlanta (on 7-6) and the band played a 13-song set.
Bassist Jeff Pilson told Ultimate Classic Rock, “The audience was fabulous. You could really kind of feel the emotions of people knowing that this is the beginning of our farewell tour.”
As the result of a recent back injury, Pilson performed the show while seated on a stool, but that change ended up offering him a new perspective. He said, “I got a bird’s eye view of everything that I wouldn’t ordinarily get.”
Pilson says the band put together a massive 84-page commemorative book that includes interviews of old and new members and it’s being sold at the shows.
New dates are expected be added, but for now, the final date is November in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
