While none of the band members that assembled on stage last year at Hard Rock Live could lay claim to being original members of the classic rock group Foreigner, that didn’t prevent the capacity crowd from embracing the band.

During a 90-minute concert, the group catered to the fans too, delivering hits such as “Double Vision,” “Head Games,” and Cold as Ice.” In fact, every song in the 11-song set was a radio hit.

Expect a similar performance when the group returns to Hard Rock Live on April 30.

“I never could have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner forty years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later,” says founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones in a press release announcing the 40th anniversary tour. “I can’t express the gratitude I feel when fans share stories of how our songs have been woven into their milestones and memories over the years. This summer we are going to celebrate these songs."

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
