UNCASVILLE, CT (October 1, 2019) – Lou Gramm, original lead singer of Foreigner, was hospitalized at the Unity Hospital at Park Ridge in Rochester, NY last week with a severe respiratory infection, dehydration and fatigue. He hoped to be ready to appear during the FOREIGNER Double Vision: Then & Now tour and some scheduled shows with Asia. Unfortunately, at his recent follow up appointment, his doctor pronounced him unable to perform at these shows.
Lou Gramm stated “I’m very disappointed about not being able to perform at the FOREIGNER Double Vision: Then & Now shows for all the fans. My doctor insists if I pushed myself to perform, I would be in big trouble. So doctor’s orders, I ride the bench. Rock on!”
