Lou Gramm said that “it was great” to perform with original FOREIGNER members this past summer in the reunion concerts that celebrated the 40th anniversary of the band.
Jones, Gramm, Greenwood, Elliott, McDonald and Wills ran through a five-song mini set consisting of “Feels Like the First Time” — which Jones dedicated to late original bassist Ed Gagliardi — “Double Vision”, “Blue Morning, Blue Day”, “Long Long Way From Home” and “Dirty White Boy”. The musicians later joined FOREIGNER’s current lineup to play “I Want to Know What Love Is” and “Hot Blooded”.
Take a look at they performing Hot Blooded:
In a brand new interview with Rockbandreviews.com, Gramm talked about performing with his former bandmates again.

“It was great to get back on stage with the original Foreigner. We played about six or seven songs; it was a lot of fun. And Mick, of course, played with us. And then the two bands — the Foreigner of today and the original Foreigner, actually played a few songs together, and that was also fun. And they are really nice guys and good musicians. And we had a lot of fun, and we’re gonna do some more, I think.”
“I’ve been doing weekends for the last few years. That’s kind of nice. You leave Thursday, you play Friday, Saturday [and] you come home Sunday. So I think we’re gonna be doing more of those, and then there’s gonna be the Foreigner shows. I don’t know how many of those we’re gonna do into what month. I suppose it depends on the reception of the audience. So I think everything is kind of poised for a fun and interesting summer [of 2018], and let’s see what happens.”
