Foreigner, one of the biggest-selling bands in history and creator of some of rock’s most enduring hits, will headline the Miller Lite Carb Day Concert on Friday, May 24, 2019 to conclude one of the most exciting days in the Month of May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The concert starts at 3:30 p.m. on the Miller Lite Stage inside Turn 4 of the IMS oval. An opening artist will be announced in the coming weeks.
Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems, including “Juke Box Hero,” “Cold As Ice,” “Hot Blooded,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You,” “Feels Like The First Time,” “Urgent,” “Head Games,” “Say You Will,” “Dirty White Boy,” “Long, Long Way From Home” and the worldwide No. 1 hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than 40 years into the game with massive airplay and continued Billboard Top 200 album success. Foreigner also features strongly in every category in Billboard‘s Greatest of All Time listing
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 like “Urgent,” “Juke Box Hero,” and “Waiting For A Girl Like You.” Those songs helped give Foreigner‘s next album, “4,” its impressive run at No. 1 on the Billboard chart. At the zenith of 1980s sound, Foreigner‘s fifth album, “Agent Provocateur,” gave the world the incredible No. 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. He reformed the band after a 2002 hiatus and selected lead singer Kelly Hansen, one of rock’s greatest showmen, to help write an inspired new chapter in the history of Foreigner.
Jones also brought in bassist Jeff Pilson, multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel, guitarist Bruce Watson, Michael Bluestein on keyboards, and Chris Frazier on drums. An unprecedented new level of energy led the group to a re-emergence accentuated by new music that speaks to long time Foreigner fans and younger generations alike.
