Foreigner: Live in Concert
Hear Foreigner recorded in 1978 on their tour backing their very first album this week on Live in Concert, Saturday night at 8 on RKR.
Although "4" was their biggest album, Foreigner was rockin' right out of the gate. "Feels Like the First Time," "Cold as Ice," and "Long, Long Way from Home" all came off their self-titled debut record, released in March of 1977. The band was soon selling out arenas all over the U.S. and by the Spring of 1978 they were touring Europe, Japan and Australia. This weekend, we’ll listen to a legendary performance from this tour, captured live at the Rainbow Theatre in London. It was April 27th, 1978. They played a lot of material from that amazing first album, and they gave the fans a preview of material from their then forthcoming 2nd album, “Double Vision.”
Whitesnake is also on the bill with a performance from the Monsters of Rock at Castle Donington in the Summer of 1990. Steve Vai, Adrian Vandenberg, Rudy Sarzo and Tommy Aldridge were all in the lineup at this point, with the band fronted, as always, by David Coverdale. You'll hear a set from the band Live and Peter Frampton comes alive this week with a 2012 show from Washington D.C.
We know some of you were there on June 9, in '78 when Foreigner played Wings Stadium relive the memories this week on the show. Saturday nights rock with Live in Concert, every week at 8 pm, exclusively on Kalamazoo's Rock Station 107.7 RKR.
