Foreigner announce 2014 UK tour with support from Europe and FM


FOREIGNER with special guests EUROPE and FM will appear onstage together for the first time ever taking in nine dates across the UK throughout April 2014.  The nine date UK tour kicks off on Thursday 3rd April at the O2 Apollo Manchester.

"I’m thrilled to be coming back home to England and touring with Europe and FM," says Foreigner’s founding British member and lead guitarist, Mick Jones. "We’re looking forward to having a great time."

A special 02 ticket presale begins at 9am on Wednesday 14th August. A special Planet Rock and Live Nation presale will begin at 9am Thursday 15th August. Tickets will go on general sale from 9am, Friday 16th August at Live Nation and Ticketmaster with official Meet & Greet VIP packages available from VIP Nation.

FOREIGNER, one of the biggest rock bands of all time, are internationally renowned for creating some of the most iconic songs in rock music.

With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, FOREIGNER is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million.

Responsible for some of rock’s and roll’s most enduring anthems including "Cold As Ice", "Juke Box Hero", "Feels Like The First Time", "Urgent", "Head Games", "Waiting For A Girl Like You", "Say You Will", "Dirty White Boy", "Long, Long Way From Home" and the worldwide #1 hit, "I Want To Know What Love Is", FOREIGNER continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game.

At FOREIGNER's core is founder and lead guitarist Mick Jones, the visionary maestro whose stylistic songwriting, indelible guitar hooks and multi-layered talents continue to escalate FOREIGNER's influence, along with Kelly Hansen (lead vocals) Jeff Pilson (bass guitar) and multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel. In June 2013, Billy Joel inducted Mick Jones into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.

Special guests are the legendary, multi million selling, Swedish hard rock band EUROPE. Hot off the heels of a Spanish tour with Def Leppard and Whitesnake, Europe have made nothing short of a remarkable comeback with their last four studio albums, "Start From The Dark", "Secret Society", "Last Look At Eden" and their ninth and most critically acclaimed studio album "Bag Of Bones" which was declared the 16th best rock album of 2012 by Classic Rock Magazine.

EUROPE will perform songs from their last four albums, plus their classics including "Rock The Night", "Superstitious", "Carrie", "Let The Good Times Rock", "Prisoners In Paradise" and their worldwide No. 1 rock anthem "The Final Countdown".

Founded and formed by lead singer, chief songwriter, Joey Tempest and guitar legend John Norum, the band have over the last 10 years re-established themselves into a cutting edge hard rock band well respected in the rock community.

EUROPE includes the original line-up - Joey Tempest (vocals), John Norum (guitars), Mic Michaeli (keyboards), John Levén (bass) and Ian Haugland (drums). The current "Bag Of Bones" spawned three radio hits in the UK – "Not Supposed To Sing The Blues", "Firebox" and "Demon Head".

Special guests FM will be opening the concerts on the upcoming UK tour. FM formed in 1984 and quickly hit the road touring with the likes of Meat Loaf, Tina Turner, Foreigner, Gary Moore, Status Quo and the white-hot Bon Jovi on their "Slippery When Wet" tour. FM released their debut album "Indiscreet" in 1986 to great critical acclaim.

For the next 12 years FM consolidated their position at the forefront of British melodic rock, touring everywhere they could to promote releases such as 1989's "Tough It Out" and 1992's "Aphrodisiac".

In 2007 - after a 12 year sabbatical - FM returned to the stage with a headline performance at a sold-out Firefest IV at Nottingham Rock City. This was followed in March 2010 by the release of their highly anticipated sixth studio album "Metropolis".

Spring 2013 saw FM release a double helping of again critically-acclaimed albums - "Rockville" and companion album, "Rockville II". The band line-up features Steve Overland (vocals, guitar), Merv Goldsworthy (bass), Pete Jupp (drums), Jem Davis (keyboards) and Jim Kirkpatrick (guitar).
