Foghat Releases New Live Album, Revisits Classic 1977 Live Album On Tour

Foghat are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their epic double platinum album Foghat Live!  To mark the occasion, the band are releasing Live At The Belly Up, recorded last year at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, California. The entire 1977 Foghat Live! album will be part of the band's 2017 live set.

Last year, the band released their 19th album Under The Influence  on both vinyl and CD to great acclaim. And now, for 2017, comes Live At The Belly Up, already available digitally, and available on CD on June 30th on Foghat Records.

Fans can pre-order the CD, along with other Foghat merchandise, at Pledge Music.

Recorded on August 11, 2016, Live At The Belly Up opens with the one-two punch of “Fool For The City” and “Eight Days on the Road,” and doesn’t let up until the last note of the raucous 10 minute, no-holds-barred set closer “Slow Ride.”

The set list is a solid representation of the band’s body of work to date. Three tracks from Under The Influence -- “Under The Influence,” “Knock It Off,” and “Hot Mama.”-- make their live recording debut as well.

According to lead singer Charlie Huhn, “The band just wants to make sure that after every show, fans are convinced they just got rocked, from the second we start the first song to the end of the show.”


Of note, the band will be doing the Jeff & Larry Backyard Barbeque, a Live Nation tour with Jeff Foxworthy & Larry the Cable Guy! A very cool new idea for an evening of comedy and rock. Below are the confirmed dates that Foghat will be appearing on so far.
