According to Tom Gimbel, rhythm guitarist and sax player for Foreigner, the show is a blast. ” It’s so so much much, the night starts off with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience, then up next is Cheap Trick. They are a great, run band to see live. We are on next, and play for about 90 minutes or so”. Gimbel said. He is sort of coming home, as he grew up in New Jersey. He’s no stranger to the venue having played there before in July 2015 when they opened for Kid Rock. The play at the BB&T Pavilion tonight , July 13 2017. It’s on a weeknight so tickets are still available. Go to the box office at the stadium tonight to avoid fees. Avoid the scalpers.
During his show, you can expect band members to run around in the crowd. “It’s a high energy show, right out of the gate” Gimbel said. The last time the band was in town was in October where they did an acoustic show. When asked about a chance of a repeat tonight “No, nothing acoustic tonight, well, maybe one that we start off with, but I don’t wanna give it away”, he said.
Foreigner has anew release, called Foreigner 40, It’s a great collection and remasters of some old classics. Expect tonight’s show to heavily feature most of these songs.
