SMACNA proudly announces that the 2019 Annual Convention headline entertainment act is one of the best-selling bands of all time, FOREIGNER. Long a staple on classic rock stations around the globe, FOREIGNER is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and has album sales now exceeding 80 million.
Still rocking the charts after more than 40 years with massive airplay and continued Billboard Top 200 album success, FOREIGNER will be providing attendees of SMACNA’s 2019 Annual Convention with an exclusive concert on Wednesday evening, October 23, at the upscale JW Marriott in Austin, Texas.
Founded in 1976, FOREIGNER‘s debut album produced the hits “Feels Like The First Time,” “Cold As Ice” and “Long, Long Way From Home.” The album Double Vision followed, as did a string of hits including “Urgent,” “Juke Box Hero” and “Waiting For A Girl Like You.” Those songs helped give FOREIGNER‘s next album, 4, its impressive run at #1 on the Billboard chart.
At the pinnacle of 80’s sound, FOREIGNER‘s fifth album, Agent Provocateur, gave the world the incredible #1 global hit,” I Want To Know What Love Is.” This musical milestone followed the record-breaking song “Waiting For A Girl Like You.”
At FOREIGNER‘s core is the founder and Songwriters Hall of Fame member Mick Jones, the visionary maestro whose stylistic songwriting, indelible guitar hooks, and multi-layered talents continue to escalate FOREIGNER‘s influence and guide the band to new horizons.
In recent years, FOREIGNER has headlined several Live Nation tours, rocking across the country and the world with contemporaries and friends. This once in a lifetime exclusive concert is just the type of memory that all attendees will never forget.
