Veteran rockers bring their live show to Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London
Foreigner are celebrating their 40th anniversary with four UK dates in 2018, tickets are available from Fri 12 May at 9am.
The group, responsible for hits like 'I Want To Know What Love Is', 'Joke Box Hero' and 'Cold As Ice', will play Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London.
For Mick Jones, who was born and raised in England but founded the group in New York back in 1976, the shows will be a homecoming of sorts.
Jones added: 'I never could have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner forty years ago, that we'd still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later. I can't express the gratitude I feel when fans share stories of how our songs have been woven into their milestones and memories over the years.'
And he said playing London's iconic Royal Albert Hall was a dream come true.
'Playing at The Royal Albert Hall has been a childhood dream, as one of my earliest memories was attending a Gustav Holst concert, mesmerized by Sir Malcolm Sargent conducting 'The Planet Suite.' To perform with my band at this iconic venue decades later, as Foreigner celebrates its 40th Anniversary Year, is a true honour.'
