FOREIGNER Announces 2020 Las Vegas Residency

Legendary rockers FOREIGNER will headline a 10-show residency beginning in January next year at The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tickets start at $49.95 plus taxes and fees, and they go on sale starting Friday, August 9. Shows will be at 8 p.m.

Shows are scheduled for the following dates:

January 2020: 24, 25, 29, 31

February 2020: 1

April 2020: 17, 18, 22, 24, 25

"If you take a look at FOREIGNER's catalog, there are 16 Top 30 hits, and [in planning a show like this] the problem becomes what songs do you leave out," frontman Kelly Hansen tells Billboard. "Do you do some songs acoustically or do you give them all the classic presentation? These are all discussions that we have in creating a set list, but you're definitely going to hear all of the big ones for sure."

The band, which is led by founding guitarist Mick Jones, also includes keyboardist Michael Bluestein, drummer Chris Frazier, longtime multi-instrumentalist Thom Gimbel, bassist Jeff Pilson and guitarist Bruce Watson.

FOREIGNER's last album, "Can't Slow Down", was the only full-length collection of new songs to have been released by the band since Hansen took over vocals after original singer Lou Gramm left the band for good in 2002. The album entered the Billboard Top 30, driven by the radio singles "In Pieces" and "When It Comes To Love". The band also has released a series of live albums and compilations, including 2016's "In Concert: Unplugged" and 2017's "40".

Last year, Gramm participated in FOREIGNER's "Double Vision: Then And Now" concerts, which featured current and original members of the band, including Jones, drummer Dennis Elliott, keyboardist Al Greenwood, bassist Rick Wills and guitarist/saxophonist Ian McDonald.

Gramm was the voice on FOREIGNER's biggest hits, including "Feels Like The First Time" and "Cold as Ice" from the band's eponymous debut in 1977, and later songs like "Hot Blooded" and "I Want to Know What Love Is".
