Foreigner’s Lou Gramm Heads ’80s Rock Vocalist Show Coming To GR
The former Foreigner lead singer is coming to the Forest Hills Center for the Arts on Thursday, September 8.
Lou Gramm Was Foreigner's Original Lead Singer
Lou fronted Foreigner from their mid-70s conception until 1990, when a beef with founding member Mick Jones caused him to leave. He rejoined the band briefly before permanently leaving the group in 2003.
Gramm was Foreigner's lead singer for all of their top 40 hits from 'Feels Like The First Time', which went to number 4 in 1977 to their final top ten hit, 'I Don't Want To Live Without You' in 1988.
Gramm also released a solo album, Ready or Not in 1987, which featured the hit, 'Midnight Blue'.
Two Other Former '80s Rock Singers To Join Gramm
Steve Augeri, who fronted Journey from 1998 until 2003, replaced Steve Perry when he retired in 1997. Augeri also has experience singing with Michael Schenker of the Scorpions and had his own band, the Steve Augeri Band from 2010-2017.
Prior to fronting Journey, Steve performed with Tall Stories and Tyketto. He reunited with Tall Stories in 2009. He also was in the band Bad Penny.
Joining Gramm and Augeri for a night of classic rock will be John Payne, who followed John Wetton as the lead singer of the '80s supergroup Asia.
The trio will perform songs from all three bands, as well as original material at the Forest Hills Fine Arts Center on Thursday night, September 8. Tickets are available here.
