Foreigner Reunites Four Original Members On Stage For First Time Since 1980

Four of the five surviving original members of Foreigner reunited for a three-song encore during the band's concert last night (Thursday, July 20) at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, New York.

Singer Lou Gramm, keyboardist Al Greenwood and multi-instrumentalist Ian McDonald joined Mick Jones to perform "Long, Long Way From Home," "I Want To Know What Love Is," and "Hot Blooded". This marked the first time Jones, Gramm, Greenwood and McDonald had all shared a stage together since 1980.

"It was great to have Lou, Al and Ian join us on stage last night, and certainly brought back some special memories, " Mick Jones, Foreigner's leader and sole original member still with the band, said. "All the original guys are out there playing live shows and working on studio projects. A performance by the entire original band for a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction next year would be a great way to cap off our 40th anniversary celebrations."
