Foreigner have announced a 2018 summer tour of the US.

The Juke Box Heroes Tour will encompass 29 shows and will kick off at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion on June 15 and wrap up with a set at Irvine’s Five Point Amphitheater on August 1.

The band will be joined on the road by special guests Whitesnake and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening. Tickets for the shows will go on sale from 10am local time on December 8 (Friday) via Live Nation.

Foreigner founding member and guitarist Mick Jones says: “I’m excited to join forces with my fellow UK countrymen, David Coverdale and Jason Bonham, for what’s sure to be a rockin’ summer tour in the States.”

Whitesnake vocalist David Coverdale adds: “We are truly excited and looking forward to playing in 2018 with our friends, Foreigner and Jason Bonham, on their North American tour.”

Bonham opened for Foreigner on their 40th Anniversary Tour and he says it was a “very special” experience.

He continues: “When Mick asked if I’d do it again in 2018, I said yes without hesitation. I’m excited that Whitesnake will be filling out the middle slot this time as I’ve known David since I was 14 years old. It’s going to be a WHOLE LOTTA FUN!”

In addition, Foreigner vocalist Kelly Hansen has shared a video of himself spreading some festive cheer – with some help from his neighbours. It can be found below, along with a list of all Foreigner’s Juke Box Heroes tour dates.
