About Those Foreigner Reunion Rumors....

As much as I'd love to see a Foreigner reunion on-stage this Friday night at Bo and Jim Bash VI it's not gonna happen.

Yes, original Foreigner member Mick Jones spoke to Billboard Magazine recently saying...

"Oh, it's definitely crossed my mind, I think it's something the fans would love. It'd be interesting, the contrast of the two styles of the two bands. I think it would be appealing. It's not carved in whatever things are carved in, but the thoughts are flowing around. But I'm still not quite sure how to forecast it."

And yes... a reunion has already taken place on this current 40th Anniversary tour. A few weeks ago (see below) July 20 at Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY original lead singer Lou Gramm, multi-instrumentalist Ian McDonald and keyboardist Al Greenwood joined the band on-stage for the encore. It was the latter two's first appearance with Foreigner since 1980 and Gramm's first since 1993. 

 

Even drummer Dennis Elliott joined Foreigner at a recent show in Tampa.  

But here's why I don't think it will happen here on Friday night...

There are a few factors working against us...

1) Unlike New York & Tampa, Dallas isn't close to where any of the original members reside...

2) Dallas is freaking HOT. These "elder statesmen" of rock most likely wouldn't choose a sweltering August evening in Texas to exert the necessary energy to rock properly.

3) We haven't heard word one about any special or surprise guests

So here's the deal... it's not gonna happen, so don't go into Friday night's Bo & Jim Bash expecting to see a Foreigner reunion, nonetheless they will put on an amazing show.
