January 12, 2018
FOREIGNER legends Mick Jones and Lou Gramm joined Billy Joel on stage Thursday night (January 11) at Madison Square Garden in New York City to perform two of their band's biggest hits, "Urgent" and "Cold As Ice". The reunion took place during the 48th show of Billy's monthly residency at the iconic venue and his 94th overall at the Garden.
Joel brought Jones and Gramm out on stage after pointing out that Mick produced his 1989 studio album "Storm Front" and discussing Jones's role in all of FOREIGNER's classic songs.
Joel previously inducted the FOREIGNER pair into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in 2013.
FOREIGNER recently announced the 2018 29-city summer "Juke Box Heroes Tour", produced by Live Nation. Support on the trek will come from WHITESNAKE and JASON BONHAM'S LED ZEPPELIN EVENING.
Original FOREIGNER members Gramm, Dennis Elliott (drums),Al Greenwood (keyboards),Ian McDonald (multi-instrumentalist) and FOREIGNER's second bassist, Rick Wills, rejoined Jones on stage last October at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Michigan. This special event was recorded for a forthcoming 2018 TV special, DVD and accompanying album release. Jones is the sole remaining founding member in FOREIGNER's current lineup.
