The current iteration of Foreigner—at this point free from any original members whatsoever—rolls through the Bay area every year.

That band's partaken in Busch Gardens’ concert series in 2019, celebrating its 40th anniversary with OGs Mick Jones and Dennis Elliott at the ol’ Gary in 2017. There was even an orchestral gig at Ruth Eckerd Hall in 2018. Eight months after a different Clearwater gig, the six-piece featuring Kelly Hansen on vocals (not the grill) makes its debut at Tampa's Hard Rock Event Center on Tuesday, Nov. 15.
