Written by Classic Rock 93.9 on July 17, 2019
A new concert special featuring Foreigner performing one of its recent “Double Vision: Then and Now” reunion shows will get its world premiere this Friday, July 19 on the DirectTV broadcast satellite service at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The show, which will air in ultra-high definition, features Foreigner’s current lineup and the band’s surviving original members — including founding frontman Lou Gramm — performing both together and separately.
The concert special will be released as a home video this October with bonus features.
Foreigner has been playing occasional “Double Vision: Then and Now” shows since 2017. The band recently announced four new reunion performances that will take place this October.
The veteran rockers, playing with just the current lineup, are on tour in Europe through a July 21 show in Kent, U.K. The group will then launch a North American trek on August 7 in Jackson, Mississippi, that will run into the fall and include the aforementioned “Double Vision” shows.
