Foreigner Have The No 1 Album On Classical Chart In America

Classic rock band Foreigner are now officially a classical rock band. The legendary 70s rock band is number one on Billboard’s Classical Chart.

The album that has crossed Foreigner over from Classic to Classical is ‘Foreigner With The 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus’, an album of the band’s greatest hits recorded with the orchestra conducted by Ernst van Tiel.

“I could never have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner 40 years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later,” Foreigner founder Mick Jones said in a statement. “Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer’s orchestral arrangements have shown us a new symphonic dimension of our music, which I hope our fans will enjoy.”

Foreigner 2018 is Mick Jones (guitar), Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums)

In October they will tour Australia accompanied by an 18-piece orchestra led by celebrated Canberra conductor Kenneth Lampl.

Sunday, October: 14: Botanic Park, Adelaide
Tuesday, October 16: Riverside Theatre, Perth
Thursday, October 18: Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Sydney
