Billy Joel welcomed Foreigner’s Lou Gramm and Mick Jones onstage at New York’s Madison Square Garden Thursday to perform a pair of the rock band’s hits, “Urgent” and “Cold as Ice.”
Foreigner’s Lou Gramm and Mick Jones took the stage on Billy Joel’s concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden last week and performed with Joel the band’s hits “Cold As Ice” and “Urgent”.

Back in 2013, Joel was the responsible to induct Mick Jones and Lou Gramm into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. “Back when there were jukeboxes, these guys really were ‘Jukebox Heroes,'” Joel said in his speech. “Mick and Lou forged a legacy that resonates with generations of music fans.” That ceremony marked the first time Gramm and Jones performed together in eight years.
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.
Read what he said:
“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.”
