FOREIGNER TAKES OVER PRETORIA
They came they rocked and they conquered. The legendary Foreigner showed on Sunday night at the Sun Bet Arena in the Jacaranda City just why they are regarded as one of the best live rock bands on the planet. Drawing on their platinum studded albums from the 70`s and `80s they delivered hit after hit with flawless precision and devastating power. Led by singer Kelly Hansen, who must rank as one of rock`s premier frontmen, the band blasted off with a blistering and breathless “ Double Vision” and the energy never let up leaving the sold out audience on their feet . The fans sang along with every classic song including “ Waiting for a girl like you” , “Feels like the first time”, “Head Games” , “Cold as ice” and a pair of timeless gems in “Urgent” and “Juke box Hero that had them dancing in the aisle. The cherry on the top was a moving and evocative “ I want to know what love is” which featured a cameo performance by the St John`s College Choir accompanied by an entire audience in full throated voice !
Cape Town is set to experience the Foreigner magic at Grand West on Tuesday 11th October. Another Big Concerts Experience.
