Foreigner, Loverboy to play downtown Denver concert

"The time has come," said Foreigner singer Kelly Hansen.

DENVER — The end is in sight for Foreigner.

The band behind "I Want To Know What Love Is," "Cold As Ice," "Hot Blooded" and "Juke Box Hero" announced a farewell tour on Monday.

The final final tour is set to kick off July 6, 2023, in Atlanta. The tour will feature special guest Loverboy.

The tour will make a Denver stop at Ball Arena on Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2023.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, Nov. 18 at LiveNation.com.

"Many years ago, I wrote a song called ‘Feels Like The First Time’ and today we are launching one last worldwide tour," Foreigner leader Mick Jones. "We will be presenting a show that I know will have the same enthusiasm as our very first appearances. The tour will start this summer in America and we hope to get to every place that we have played over the last several years. While I’m sure our fans will have mixed feelings about the end of the road for the band, I know our shows are going to delight audiences everywhere."

"The time has come. We have more or less lived our lives on the road for almost eighteen years," Foreigner singer Kelly Hansen said. "We have always strived to give you our best and we intend to finish this the same way. Foreigner has a brilliant and increasingly demanding catalogue of songs to sing and I refuse to give them less than they deserve. So, we’re going to finish strong. I want to make it very clear how grateful and appreciative we are to our audiences all over the world who have supported this band. I’m sure there may be occasions when we’ll do some special appearances, but I think the time is coming for us to live off the road. Thank you all so much!"
