"I can't imagine a better group of friends to share this monumental tour with."

By Annie Reuter

(RADIO.COM) – Foreigner turns 40 in 2017 and what better way to celebrate than with a year-long tour?

The rock band will ring in the big 4-0 with Cheap Trick and Jason Bonham. The tour will launch on July 11 in Syracuse, New York and will be making a Bay Area stop at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View on September 2nd. Tickets go on sale January 13.

“I never could have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner forty years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later,” says founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones in a press release. “I can’t express the gratitude I feel when fans share stories of how our songs have been woven into their milestones and memories over the years. This summer we are going to celebrate these songs, and I can’t imagine a better group of friends to share this monumental tour with, than Cheap Trick and Jason Bonham who are sure to make it a true tribute to the everlasting power of rock and roll.”

In addition to a tour, the band will also release a compilation album titled 40 – Forty Hits From Forty Years which includes singles from the original lineup as well as a brand new song from Jones.
