Foreigner have announced that they’ve rescheduled their November run of four UK shows.

The dates celebrating the band’s 40th anniversary were due to take place in Wolverhampton, London, Glasgow and Manchester in November. But those shows have now been moved to May 2018.

A short statement reads: “Foreigner have rescheduled their four UK dates to May 2018 following unexpected scheduling issues earlier this year.”

Find the new dates below.

Speaking about four decades of Foreigner, founding member Mick Jones previously said: “I never could have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner 40 years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later.

“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.”

Jones also reported that having the opportunity to play London’s Royal Albert Hall will be “a true honour.”

He said: “It has been a childhood dream, as one of my earliest memories was attending a Gustav Holst concert, mesmerised by Sir Malcolm Sargent conducting The Planet Suite.

“To perform with my band at this iconic venue decades later, as Foreigner celebrates its 40th anniversary, is a true honour.”

Jones, vocalist Kelly Hansen, bassist Jeff Pilson, rhythm guitarist Tom Gimbel, keyboardist Michael Bluestein, guitarist Bruce Watson and drummer Chris Frazier will kick off their European tour in Switzerland on May 20.
