At one point not too long ago, they toured the world as a one-two combination, but don’t count on it happening again. Luckily, you can count on Foreigners Journey, a veritable tribute-band supergroup, to deliver the unforgettable experience of seeing both bands in one knockout show.

Foreigners Journey comprises veteran members of the music scene, guys who’ve made it with their own original music. But since 2014 they’ve also dedicated themselves to something larger, a supergroup intent on bringing the sounds, sights, and emotional thrills of two of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest bands to eager fans around the Northeast and beyond.

Featuring American Idol Rudy Cardenas on Lead Vocals. Keyboardist Paul Kochanski, Bassist Joe Pettengill and Drummer Art Mambuca (and his sprawling double kick-drum kit) all played together in the Journey tribute band Captured. And, rounding out the band is hotshot Guitarist Kevin Herrera.

Their repertoire of note-for-note classics by Foreigner and Journey provide a crowd-pleasing night of unforgettable music, ready for singing along, jumping out of your seat to bounce and sway, or maybe even slow dancing (for those nostalgic for high school in the ‘80s). From power ballads like “Waiting for a Girl Like You,” “I Want to Know What Love Is,” and “Open Arms” to anthems like “Hot Blooded,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” and “Any Way You Want It,” Foreigners Journey are more than a tribute band. They’re a time machine, and their energy is infectious.

About Foreigners Journey

Almost any music fan who came of age in the 1980s will cite Foreigner and Journey

as bands that sound tracked their young life, bands that are forever lodged in their

mind. Back then, the two acts might have been separated by an ocean, but together

they helped define the "magic era" of classic rock.

Foreigners Journey comprises veteran members of the music scene, guys who've

made it with their own original music. But since 2014 they've also dedicated

themselves to something larger, a supergroup intent on bringing the sounds, sights,

and emotional thrills of two of rock ‘n' roll's greatest bands to eager fans around the

Northeast and beyond.

Featuring American Idol finalist, Rudy Cardenas on Lead Vocals. Keyboardist Paul

Kochanski, Bassist Joe Pettengill and Drummer Art Mambuca (and his sprawling

double kick-drum kit) all played together in the Journey tribute band Captured. And,

rounding out the band is hotshot Guitarist Kevin Alexander Herrera and Adam Tese

on Saxophone.

Their repertoire of classics hits by Foreigner and Journey and a few surprises

provides a crowd-pleasing night of unforgettable music.

From power ballads like "I Want to Know What Love Is," and "Faithfully" to anthems

like "Jukebox Hero," “Stone In Love,” “Cold As Ice,” "Separate Ways," and "Don't

Stop Believin'." Foreigners Journey are more than a tribute band. They're a time

machine, and their energy is infectious.

FOREIGNER And STYX Announce Their Tour Companion Album 'Renegades & Juke Box Heroes'

"Cold As Ice" , "Too Much Time On My Hands" , "Juke Box Hero" , "Renegade" and more! Nothing sounds more like the soundtrack of summer than STYX 's and FOREIGNER 's biggest hits. Recently announced as inductees to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame , FOREIGNER hits the road in June co-headlining the "Renegades & Juke Box Heroes" trek with STYX and special guest John Waite . Adding to the excitement, STYX and FOREIGNER have announced "Renegades & Juke Box Heroes" , a very special limited-edition companion album, available exclusively at tour stops starting at today's tour launch in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the Van Andel Arena, and at select retail on July 12.

This must-have collector's album, available as a picture disc or in elegant silver vinyl, features both bands' greatest hits and was mastered for vinyl by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound with lacquers cut by Joe Nino-Hernes . Tracks include FOREIGNER 's most beloved hits, including "Feels Like The First Time" , "Cold As Ice" and the worldwide No. 1 hit "I Want To Know What Love Is" , alongside STYX massive hits "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)", "Come Sail Away" and "Renegade" and more.

Just 1,000 copies of the picture disc and only 5,000 individually numbered copies of the silver edition are available. With many tour dates already selling out, demand is sure to be high. When they are gone, they're gone for good! A 13-track CD featuring all three artists and including the vinyl tracks is also available. The songs are available on all digital outlets. The picture disc will be available on FOREIGNER 's and STYX 's web sites, and the silver edition will be available on Amazon on July 12.

The "Renegades & Juke Box Heroes" tour launches today in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the Van Andel Arena. John Waite 's No. 1 songs "Missing You" and "When I See You Smile" will help ensure a summer evening of feel-good anthems. Tickets are going fast, available at LiveNation.com.

Mick Jones continues to elevate FOREIGNER 's influence and guide the band to new horizons with his stylistic songwriting, indelible guitar hooks and multi-layered talents. Lead singer Kelly Hansen , one of rock's greatest showmen, has led FOREIGNER into the digital age, inspiring a whole new generation of fans. Bassist Jeff Pilson ; Michael Bluestein on keyboards; guitarist Bruce Watson ; Chris Frazier on drums, and guitarist Luis Maldonado provide an unprecedented level of energy that has resulted in the re-emergence of the astounding music that speaks to FOREIGNER 's enduring popularity.

With more Billboard Top 10 hits than JOURNEY , and just as many as FLEETWOOD MAC , FOREIGNER is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 80 million. 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 still rocks the charts more than 40 years into the game with massive airplay and continued Billboard Top 200 album success. Streams of FOREIGNER 's hits are approaching 15 million per week.

The seven men comprising STYX — James "JY" Young (lead vocals, guitars), Tommy Shaw (lead vocals, guitars), Chuck Panozzo (bass, vocals), Todd Sucherman (drums, percussion), Lawrence Gowan (lead vocals, keyboards), Will Evankovich (mandolin, guitars), Terry Gowan (bass, guitar, vocals) — have committed to rocking the paradise together with audiences far and wide by entering their second decade of averaging over 100 shows a year, and each one of them is committed to making the next show better than the last. STYX draws from over four decades of barn burning chart hits, joyous singalongs, and hard-driving deep cuts. Like a symphony that builds to a satisfying crescendo, a STYX set covers a wide range of stylistic cornerstones. From the progressively sweeping splendor that is "The Grand Illusion" to the hunker-down fortitude of all that is the "Blue Collar Man" , from the majestic spiritual love for a special "Lady" to the seething indictment of preening, primping pageantry for pageantry's sake of "Miss America" , from an individual yearning for true connection as a "Man In The Wilderness" to a soul-deep quest to achieve what's at the heart of one's personal vision in "Crystal Ball" , from the regal reach-for-the-stars bravado of "Come Sail Away" to the grainy all-in gallop of that rugged "Renegade" who had it made, the band draws on an unlimited cache of ways to immerse one's mind and body in their signature sound. STYX hit its stride with guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw 's first LP with the band, 1976's "Crystal Ball" , and then they become the first group to score four triple-platinum albums in a row: "The Grand Illusion" (1977), "Pieces Of Eight" (1978), "Cornerstone" (1979) and "Paradise Theater" (1981).

Multi-platinum rockers STYX released their 17th studio album, "Crash Of The Crown" , on June 18, 2021 on the band's label, Alpha Dog 2T / UMe , which was hailed by critics as their second "masterpiece" album in a row. The first being 2017's "The Mission" , their first new studio album in 14 years at the time. "Crash Of The Crown" was written pre-pandemic and recorded during the trying times of the pandemic. It's available as clear vinyl, black vinyl, CD on digital platforms. They released more new music on September 17, 2021, "The Same Stardust" EP, originally sold as part of Record Store Day (June 12, 2021). Available on blue 180-gram 12-inch vinyl only, featuring two brand-new songs on side one ( "The Same Stardust" and "Age of Entropia" ),as well as five live performances on side two of some of STYX 's classic hits previously heard during their "Styx Fix" livestreams that kept fans company during the pandemic on their official YouTube page, including "Mr. Roboto" , "Man In The Wilderness" , "Miss America" , "Radio Silence" and "Renegade" . It's available worldwide on all digital platforms.

Lou Gramm and Foreigner among Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees for 2024

Legendary rock band Foreigner, notably fronted by Gates native Lou Gramm during its peak, has received a nomination for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame .

Born in 1950, Gramm, originally Louis Grammatico, soared to fame as the band's lead vocalist, contributing to the success of their self-titled debut album in 1977, which marked the beginning of a streak of four consecutive releases certified at least five times platinum in the United States.

With Gramm at the helm, Foreigner produced iconic hits such as "Cold as Ice," "Urgent," "Juke Box Hero," "Waiting for a Girl Like You," and "I Want to Know What Love Is," the latter reaching No. 1 in eight countries.

A graduate of Gates Chili High School and Monroe Community College, Gramm battled illness in the 1990s but ultimately regained his health and continues to perform with his band, the Lou Gramm All Stars.

After living elsewhere during his Foreigner years, he returned home, buying a home in Webster.

All inductees in the Hall of Fame will be announced in late April, with the ceremony returning to Cleveland this fall and again streaming live on Disney+. To be eligible for a nomination, the artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination.

2024 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees

  • Mary J. Blige
  • Mariah Carey
  • Dave Matthews Band
  • Eric B. & Rakim
  • Peter Frampton
  • Jane's Addiction
  • Kool & the Gang
  • Lenny Kravitz
  • Sinéad O'Connor
  • Ozzy Osbourne
  • A Tribe Called Quest

10 artists are first-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees

This is the first-time ballot appearance for Cher, Carey, Sade, O’Connor, Foreigner, Frampton, Kool & The Gang, Kravitz, Oasis and Osbourne, who is already inducted as a member of Black Sabbath, which received its coronation in 2006.

Blige was previously nominated in 2021; Eric B. & Rakim haven’t been on the ballot since 2012; Jane’s Addiction was last considered in 2017; and A Tribe Called Quest will hope the third time is the charm, following nods in 2022 and 2023.

The Dave Matthews Band carries the distinction of being the only act that won the fan vote – as they did in 2020 – but was not included in the inductions that year. Previous fan vote winners include Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Duran Duran and last year, George Michael.

Cher recently told Kelly Clarkson on her talk show that she feels the Rock Hall snubbed her for many years.

"You know what, I wouldn't be in it now if they gave me a million dollars," she told Clarkson . "I'm never going to change my mind."

The date and ticket information for the ceremony will be forthcoming. In addition to the ceremony streaming live – as it did for the first time in 2023 – an edited version of the show will air on ABC and Hulu at a later date.

Foreigner and Styx

Foreigner and Styx on tour together is a match made in classic rock heaven.

The 10 Best Styx Songs (Critic’s Picks)

It’s happened many times over the years, though it’s been a decade since the bands were last on the road together — as they will be for this summer’s Renegades & Juke Box Heroes tour, which kicks off Tuesday (June 11) in Grand Rapids, Mich., and plays 36 North American dates through August. The bands will also release a joint compilation album, Renegades & Juke Box Heroes , on vinyl in conjunction with the trek. Available at tour stops and, as of July 12, at retail, it features four songs from each band, divided onto separate sides.

Trending on Billboard

Foreigner, in the midst of a farewell tour that’s slated to go into 2025, will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Oct. 19 in Cleveland after its first nomination, following an extensive campaign spearheaded by founder Mick Jones’ son-in-law Mark Ronson. Styx is still waiting for that honor but has been (comparatively) prolific in the last decade, with new albums in 2017 ( The Mission ) and 2021 (Crash of the Crown ).

Both bands have also gone through numerous membership changes during their histories, as well as recently. Earlier this month Styx brought keyboardist Lawrence Gowan’s brother Terry Gowan on board replacing bassist Ricky Phillips after 21 years. Foreigner, meanwhile, added guitarist Luis Maldonado three years ago after the amicable departure of multi-instrumentalist Thom Gimbel. But what both bands share is a staying power; in their cases — to turn a Pete Townshend phrase — it’s the songs not the identity of the singer that keeps the music moving along, and the popularity of those tunes has kept both bands healthy at the box office.

In advance of the tour, Billboard sat down with Styx’s Tommy Shaw and Foreigner’s Kelly Hansen, both eager to share their enthusiasm for hitting the road together once again with such friendly touring partners.

They Really Like Each Other

Hansen adds that, “Both bands came out of the same era, the same kind of machinery of the time, of the ‘70s, when recording techniques were expanding colossally, when all different kinds of bands on a wide spectrum were all on the same radio station together, when every song you heard was completely different. It was a really a bountiful time, and I think that’s something both of these bands have experienced that kind of bonds us and creates a camaraderie.”

That extends to at least one end-of-tour prank that Hansen remembers. “(Bassist) Jeff Pilson and I dressed up in this crazy outfits. Jeff was wearing a dress and a wig and I had a mask on with a huge nose and a cape and tights and stuff. We were just trying to make them crack up when they were in the middle of a serious song.” Did it work? “No,” Hansen says. “They’ve experienced it before.”

The First Time They Heard The Other Band

“I had just moved to Niles, Mich.,” Shaw relates, “and was sitting in the bathtub in the middle of the afternoon, cooling off ’cause it was hot. I think it was ‘Cold As Ice’ that came on; that was the first time I heard anything by Foreigner, and I’m sitting there going, ‘Who is this?! Whoa! I have to hear more of this!’ From that point on they never let me down — in fact, they just kept getting better and better. The songwriting is just fantastic, really well thought-out and produced. I think that’s what makes their music so timeless.”

Their Favorite Song By the Other Band

Hansen tries to demure — “There’s so many,” he protests — but pushed he allows that, “I like ‘Blue Collar Man.’ ‘Renegade’ is a big song. So, yeah, there’s two.” Shaw’s pick: “Well, of course, ‘I Want to Know What Love Is.’ But I can go down the list really — ‘Cold As Ice,’ ‘Hot Blooded,’ just really drop the needle anywhere and you’ll get a great song.”

Weathering Lineup Changes

“There’s the entity of the band and the music itself — the catalog of songs and what they carry with the audience,” explains Hansen, who’s been singing the songs made famous by original frontman Lou Gramm since 2005. “It’s all about the songs; it’s a testament to the writing and the recording of these songs originally.

“I think my job is to carry forward the legacy of those songs. To still be able to go out there and play these songs, and the songs still have meaning, is a rare thing to achieve. I think both bands have been doing that quite well.”

Styx, of course, still has founding guitarist James “J.Y.” Young and bassist Chuck Panozzo, who plays a few songs each night, while Shaw has been in the band since 1975.

“As we’ve gone on great people have come our way, and once you’re working in it it’s such a great world to be in, musically,” he says. “It’s the music that brings you all together.” Shaw adds that the benefit of legacy is “you’re not having to worry about having to make new music. We’re always working on new music, but the power of that music from the first time it came out and the experiences that our fans had and how they related to the music, that’s really what sticks with you.”

Is New Music Coming?

“As always, there’s unfinished stuff in the pipeline,” Hansen notes. “Maybe when we’re not on the road all the time we’ll have time to finish up some of those things. There’s definitely some good stuff that’s not finished yet, so time will tell.”

Shaw, meanwhile, says he’s been working on new Styx material with Will Evankovich, who produced the band’s last two albums and also tours with the group. “There’s music; the problem is there’s just not enough days in the week or hours in the day to get it all done. But we just keep plugging away at it and everyone brings a certain kind of magic to the new music, especially when it’s in the writing phases of it, and it’s all exciting.

“Whenever we’re creating new music we always remember who we are and the things that we love about Styx and not step out of the margins any more than we have to. But it’s such a wide lane to be in, anyway. (Styx) music can go just about anywhere.”

About the Rock Hall….

Hanses says that even though the current members of Foreigner will not be inducted, they’re thrilled for Jones, Gramm and the other members receiving the accolade.

“I think that the original guys in this band really deserve this recognition,” he says. “In so many ways they didn’t get recognition back in the day. It was somewhat of a faceless kind of thing; there wasn’t a David Lee Roth out there or a Jimmy Page or a Keith Richards public persona out there; they were a lot more about the music rather than showing off their personalities. I think they made a musical mark, so to be recognized for the music is a really great thing.”

Shaw is also stoked about his tour mates’ impending induction. “It’s fantastic,” he says. “You like to see your friends get in — (Peter) Frampton this year, too.” He’s circumspect about Styx’s prospects for the Rock Hall, however.

“We’re really powerless over it,” Shaw notes. “We don’t have any influence whatsoever. So to be anticipating it or be disappointed that we’re not in there…I don’t even know who the people are who judge (the Rock Hall), so I can’t really say much about it. We just know that our fans love us and we know that our music is good before we let them hear it. If that thing’s meant to happen, it will.”

Farewell is a relative term for Foreigner, by the way. Despite last year’s farewell tour announcement — which is expected to roll into 2025 — Foreigner is “not disappearing off the face of the earth,” according to Hansen, who’s blamed the vocal demands of singing that material as one of the reasons he’s dialing down.

“We’re just not gonna tour nine months out of the year anymore; it doesn’t get easier, especially for someone of my years,” explains the 63-year-old. “There’ll be some shows here and there, but there’ll be a lot more time for doing other things in my life that I’m passionate about,” including family, cooking, working on cars and motorcycles and “a social life that I’ve had to miss out on for many years. There’s just a lot of other things for me to do.”

Shaw says Styx is nowhere near such a point, but he does understand where Hansen’s coming from. “Y’know, I’m one of the singers (in Styx); there are good vocalists in our band who can take the leads,” he notes. “Kelly’s the guy in their band, and there’s a lot of high vocals in those (songs) that aren’t easy to do. So that’s a decision they have to make but, y’know, I never say never. They can say it’s the end; a lot of people do, and then a lot of people are right back there a year and a half later. I just hope they do what’s right for them and everybody’s happy.”

SYRACUSE N.Y. — For those who are fans of Journey and Heart, a two-for-one tribute band will be performing at the New York State Fair this year.

Journey From the Heart will have back-to-back performances at the Chevy Court stage on September 2. The popular tribute band plays many songs from the two iconic rock bands, from "Don't Stop Believin" and "Separate Ways" to "Barracuda" and "Magic Man."

Josh Ross, Canada's breakout country star, coming to NYS Fair Chevy Court August 30

Lead singer Ryan Christopher has been described as the closest thing to Steve Perry while vocalist Shareen Ann is said to be a perfect portrayal of Ann Wilson.

The band will be performing at both noon and 4 p.m.

The Fair starts Wednesday, August 21, and runs through Labor Day, Monday, September 2. All concerts are included in the price of admission, which will go on sale later this summer.

Taylor Swift, Journey, Rolling Stones. 7 tribute bands coming to Louisville

Didn't score a ticket to Taylor Swift's Eras Tour ? Or maybe you did and now feel the need for more Swiftie vibes minus the astronomical ticket price. The Brown Theatre is hosting a Taylor Swift tribute show this weekend that could scratch that itch.

And it's not just Swifties who can cash in on shows costing a fraction of the price of the real McCoy. Tribute bands playing in Louisville this summer have nearly every music genre covered from disco to heavy metal, New Wave to Tom Petty and of course, the iconic Rolling Stones.

Here are seven tribute bands performing in Louisville:
