Foreigner At Chastain Park Amphitheatre

Interview By: Suzanne Hall

Iconic 80’s rock band Foreigner performed at Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta GA on 29th July 2017 for their 40th anniversary tour with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience and Cheap Trick as openers for the night.

 

The venue was packed with people of all ages right from the front all the way to the back of the venue, Bonham and Cheap Trick got the crowd going with both their amazing sets. As soon as it got to 9:25pm it was time for Foreigner to hit the stage and as soon as they stepped foot on the stage it was non stop with the crowd dancing, singing along to the band’s phenomenal set list.

 

Throughout their set the band interacted with their fans,led by Vocalist Kelly Hanson,  Mick Jones on lead guitar, Jeff Pilson on Bass, Tom Gimbel on Rhythm Guitar/Saxophone/Flute, Bruce Watson on Lead Guitar, Chris Fraizer on Drums and  Michael Bluestein on Keys

 

Kelly even jumped down off stage to join the fans and sing which the fans loved.

 

The highlights of the show besides their incredible set list was their song Juke Box Hero, it started out with their awesome drum/keyboard intro to the song by members Chris Frazier on drums and Michael Bluestein on keys, Kelly was harnessed up and raised up on a stage near the soundboard that went straight up several feet in the air above the crowd, once the crowd saw him they went wild. Another highlight was the Dawson County High School Chamber Singers who won the choir contest and got to perform on stage with the band and sing their hit song I Want To Know What Love Is. Everyone did a phenomenal job.

 

One thing Foreigner are true rock legends and know how to put on an amazing show. If you haven’t seen the guys live yet, definitely go check them out, you won’t be disappointed. The fans at Chastain Park Amphitheatre truly got a rock show like no other that night with fans still singing while leaving the venue.
