Foreigner will hit the road with Kansas and Europe for summer tour

It will be a triple dose of “Juke Box Heroes” when Foreigner, Kansas and Europe hit the road this summer.

The tour (called, obviously, “Juke Box Heroes”) will launch July 9 in New Mexico and wind its way to Alpharetta Sept. 1 with a date at Ameris Bank Amphitheatre. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 17 via www.livenation.com

With respective catalogs that include “Cold As Ice,” “Urgent,” “I Want to Know What Love Is,” “Dust in the Wind,” “Carry on Wayward Son” and “The Final Countdown,” there is likely to be much participation from fans.

Foreigner is fronted by Kelly Hansen and includes co-founder Mick Jones, as well as Jeff Pilson, Tom Gimbel, Mike Bluestein, Bruce Watson and Chris Frazier. The band will kick off a residency at The Venetian in Las Vegas on Jan. 24.

The guys in Kansas – Phil Ehart, Rich Williams, Billy Greer, David Ragsdale, Ronnie Platt, Zak Rizvi and Tom Brislin – will release their 16th studio album in summer 2020. 

And Europe – Joey Tempest, John Norum, Mic Michaeli, John Leven and Ian Haugland – released their most recent album, “Walk the Earth,” in 2017.
