With 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 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 and roll’s most enduring anthems, including Juke Box Hero, Feels Like The First Time, Urgent, Head Games, Say You Will, Cold as Ice, Hot Blooded, and the worldwide number one hit, I Want To Know What Love Is, Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than 30 years into the game. The band is consistently in the Top 15 on classic rock radio stations and experienced a renewed surge in popularity last year when several of their hits were featured on the Rock Of Ages soundtrack. Hollywood quickly took note, and several more tracks were featured in hit films Magic Mike and Pitch Perfect. Their most recent milestone happened earlier this year, when Foreigner founder and lead guitarist Mick Jones was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Special Guest Lannie Flowers
Lannie Flowers has his beginnings here in the Metroplex, in nearby Kennedale, where he discovered at the tender age of 12, that all he needed to get a girl’s attention was a guitar. Lannie made the decision to pursue music after graduation and traveled for 13 years as part of a group called The Pengwins covering songs by T. Rex, David Bowie and Mott the Hoople. The band toured the United States and England, recorded in New York and Memphis, and was courted by Columbia and Polygram. But Lannie took matters into his own hands and built a studio in his garage. His most recent project, Circles, recorded with Arlington’s own Aaron Ave Records, includes songs that have been floating around in Lannie’s head and on home recordings for years.
