With 10 multi-platinum albums, more than 80 million albums sold, and 16 Top 30 hits, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world. Foreigner’s catalog sales were celebrated in Business Insider magazine as hitting the Top 40 among the Best-Selling Music Artists of All Time. While the Beatles were, justifiably, #1, Foreigner came in ahead of Bob Dylan, Phil Collins, Prince, Queen, Bon Jovi and Def Leppard, and Britney Spears, among many others.
Now, Foreigner's 'Double Vision: Then And Now’ takes fans behind the scenes as Lou Gramm and original band members join Mick Jones and Foreigner’s current lineup for the very first time in the band’s 40-year history. Both incarnations of the band share the same stage for an epic, history-making performance.
Watch one of rock music’s most-anticipated reunion events as ‘Double Vision: Then And Now’ celebrates the 40th anniversary of the band’s multi-platinum 1978 album ‘Double Vision’ with a masterful live performance of the band’s biggest hits, filmed at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.
Original members Lou Gramm, Al Greenwood, Dennis Elliott, Ian McDonald and Rick Wills take the stage with Mick Jones and Foreigner - Kelly Hansen, Tom Gimbel, Jeff Pilson, Michael Bluestein, Bruce Watson and Chris Frazier - to rock through some of the best-selling songs that will bring back memories and make it feel like the first time for both long-time and a new generation of fans.
Mick Jones describes it as, “This was a show that I will always remember! Sharing the stage with the guys that shaped Foreigner in the beginning and the stellar musicians that carry the flag in the new millennium, was a truly emotional moment.”
Award-winning executive producer Barry Summers of Rock Fuel Media, who created this explosive rock celebration, says, "We wanted to stage an elaborate production for the very first ‘Foreigner - Then And Now’ reunion concert”, says “Something unlike any other previous Foreigner show has captured on film, that both visually and sonically breathes new life into their amazing classic songs – the songs that I grew up on - for the fans to enjoy for many years to come. I believe we achieved that in this film and live album."
Filmed in 4K Ultra HD, using over 24 camera positions, the concert film features a stunning multi-media set design, with custom CGI animation, lasers, fog, and elaborate FX that elevate this powerful performance to new levels.
Some of the DVD's special performance features include “Juke Box Hero” with an array of special effects, lasers, smoke and an insane animated jukebox on steroids, “Starrider” using a 3D-animated spacecraft and special effects that breathe new life into the digital age, “Feels Like The First Time”, the song that launched the legacy, is performed with the original members for the first time in over 30 years, and “I Want To Know What Love Is” is a breathtaking Gospel rendition that brings the Albert Strickland & Cho'Zen Choir together with both incarnations of the band onstage for the very first time.
‘Foreigner - Double Vision: Then And Now’ will be available on CD+DVD, Blu-ray+CD, a limited-edition 2-LP Vinyl+Blu-ray, and Digital on November 15th!
