Our favorite British-American rock band is coming to Las Vegas. Foreigner announced an EXCLUSIVE Las Vegas residency, kicking off on March 25 at The Venetian Theatre at the Venetian Las Vegas. Various show dates run from March 25 through April 9, 2022. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at vividseats.com.
Fronting this tour is none other than Foreigner founding member and primary songwriter, Mick Jones. Jones is a Grammy and Golden Globe nominated songwriter and his music has been loved for generations. Jones is also an accomplished producer, and is behind at least 10 multi-platinum albums. Jones has been playing guitar since he was a teenager, and he’s bringing his decades of performance experience to the Venetian.
Jones said his early vision of Foreigner was to combine Blues and R&B music with the British Rock he grew up with in the UK. What he didn’t foresee was even better. Adding American musicians to the band allowed their music to also be inspired by American styles like Country and Western and Mississippi Blues.
Joining Jones on stage will be lead singer Kelly Hansen. Hansen has years of experience in rock music. He joined the band Hurricane in 1985 and recorded three critically-acclaimed albums. Hansen also worked with Poison’s C.C. Deville and composed music for television.
Bassist Jeff Pilson will also be joining the residency. You might recognize him from bands like Dokken, War and Peace or Lynch/Pilson. Or from his acting work in 2001 Warner Brothers movie Rock Star. On keys will be Michael Bluestein, a Berklee College of Music graduate. Bluestein has played with the likes of Boz Scaggs, Stevie Nicks, and more, and with the house band on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Guitarist Bruce Watson will be rocking those guitar licks, like he has done previously with artists including Rod Stewart, Elton John and B.B. King. On drums is Chris Frazier, who has recorded with Eddie Money, Eddie Van Halen and Gene Simmons, to name a few. And finally, Luis Maldonado joins the band, who has played with John Waite and most recently was a member of the band Train.
