Tickets on sale now

The band behind the iconic songs “I Want To Know What Love Is”, “Cold As Ice”, “Hot Blooded”, “Juke Box Hero”, and more Top 10 hits, recently announced their historic farewell tour. Foreigner with special guest Loverboy will perform at 7:00pm on Friday, September 1, 2023, at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Tickets are $129.50, $99.50, $79.50, and $59.50 and are on sale now via ticketmaster.com and the Mohegan Sun Box Office, subject to availability.

Foreigner and Loverboy, one of the 80’s biggest hit-makers, will thrill audiences with stellar performances of more than 20 combined chart-topping songs.

Foreigner will continue its long-term initiative with the Grammy Museum Foundation to invite choirs to open the show with a live A Capella Pitch Perfect performance of Classic Rock songs. Foreigner will join radio partners across the country to create a contest for local choirs to win donations to their music programs. One winning choir will be selected at each show and that choir will receive a grand prize of new musical equipment.

“Many years ago, I wrote a song called ‘Feels Like The First Time’ and today we are launching one last worldwide tour. We will be presenting a show that I know will have the same enthusiasm as our very first appearances,” Mick Jones, leader and founder of Foreigner, said. “While I’m sure our fans will have mixed feelings about the end of the road for the band, I know our shows are going to delight audiences everywhere.”

Mick Jones continues to elevate Foreigner’s influence and guide the band to new horizons with his stylistic songwriting, indelible guitar hooks, and multi-layered talents while lead singer Kelly Hansen, one of Rock’s greatest showmen, has led Foreigner into the digital age inspiring a whole new generation of fans. Bassist Jeff Pilson; Michael Bluestein on keyboards; guitarist Bruce Watson; Chris Frazier on drums and guitarist Luis Maldonado provide an unprecedented level of energy that has resulted in the reemergence of the astounding music that speaks to Foreigner’s enduring popularity.

With their trademark red leather pants, bandanas, big Rock sound and high-energy live shows, Loverboy has sold more than 10 million albums, earning four multi-platinum plaques, including Get Lucky, and a trio of double-platinum releases in their self-titled 1980 debut, 1983’s Keep It Up and 1985’s Lovin’ Every Minute of It. Their string of hits includes “Working for the Weekend”, “Lovin’ Every Minute of It”, This Could Be the Night”, “Hot Girls in Love”, “The Kid is Hot Tonite”, “Notorious”, “Turn Me Loose”, “When It’s Over”, “Heaven In Your Eyes”, and “Queen of the Broken Hearts.” The group still features the original lineup of vocalist Mike Reno, guitarist Paul Dean, drummer Matt Frenette, and keyboardist Doug Johnson with bassist Ken “Spider” Sinnaeve replacing the late Scott Smith.
