Foreigner have announced that they’ll across North America this summer with special guests Kansas and Europe.

The Juke Box Heroes 2020 tour will get under way in Albuquerque on July 9, with the 40-date run wrapping up in Austin on September 13.

The shows will follow Foreigner’s previously announced UK and European tour with Whitesnake and Europe.

Foreigner’s Mick Jones says (via Rolling Stone): “We can’t wait to hit the road with our good friends Kansas and Europe and bring all our biggest hits to cities across the country.

“We always have such a good time together, and combined we share some of the greatest songs in rock and roll. We are so excited to see our fans from coast to coast, and plan to make this summer our most epic tour yet!”

Kansas add: “We look forward to touring with Foreigner. It has been nearly 10 years since both bands have done a full tour together. That run was a blast, and we are excited to get started this summer. 

“The bands and the crews get along great, and we’ll all be working tougher to perform an exceptional show for the fans.”

Europe frontman Joey Tempest says he and his bandmates are “thrilled” at the prospect of touring across North America for the first time in four years and adds: “We are honoured to be on the road with Foreigner and Kansas for this extensive tour across North America. Strap yourself in! Europe in America once again!”

Tickets will go on general sale from 10am local time on January 17 through Live Nation.
