As for dates, the North American leg of Foreigner’s farewell tour kicks off on July 6 in Alpharetta, Georgia, and has 32 dates before concluding on September 3 in Holmdel, New Jersey.

In a statement, Mick Jones said: “Many years ago I wrote a song called ‘Feels Like The First Time’ and today we are kicking off one last world tour. We will put on a show which, I know it, will have the same excitement as our very first appearances. The tour will begin this summer in America and we hope to arrive at all the places we have played in recent years. Although I am sure our fans will have mixed feelings about the end of the road for the band, I know our concerts will delight audiences everywhere.
