Rock legends Foreigner, who play Sheffield City Hall on April 8 with special guests Europe and FM, have a new album out for Valentine’s Day called I Want To Know What Love Is – The Ballads.
And to celebrate, The Star and our sister paper The Sheffield Telegraph has teamed up with the hit-makers to give one lucky winner a top prize of a pair of meet & greet tickets to the Sheffield show,
It includes entry to the concert, plus a signed copy of Foreigner’s new album, while four runners up will each win a pair of tickets to the show.
Foreigner, whose hit singles include include Cold As Ice, Waiting For A Girl Like You, Urgent and Hot Blooded, have notched up 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 top 30 hits.
They are widely acknowledged as one of the most popular acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million.
Hot on the heels of a Spanish tour with Sheffield’s own Def Leppard and Whitesnake, The Final Countdown hit makers Europe have made a remarkable comeback with their ninth and most critically acclaimed studio album, Bag Of Bones, which was named the 16th best rock album of 2012 by Classic Rock magazine.
The show will see the band perform songs from their last four albums, plus classics such as Rock The Night, Superstitious, Carrie, Let The Good Times Rock, Prisoners In Paradise and, of course, their global rock anthem, The Final Countdown.
Special guests FM, who have been at the forefront of British melodic rock for almost 30 years, will open the show.
