Foreigner will raise funds for the Grammy Foundation by offering fans live recordings of their upcoming acoustic tour via the launch of the free new app Stereocast.
Billed as “a first-of-its-kind, live-music purchase platform”, Stereocast gives fans access to purchase as little as one song or the entire show for download immediately upon exiting the concert venue.
Stereocast will officially launch with the opening night of Foreigner’s all-acoustic tour at The Theatre at Westbury in New York on February 11.
All proceeds from purchases made on the new music app will go straight to the Grammy Foundation, which helps to provide funding for high school music programs.
"We are pleased to be partnering with StereoCast on this new initiative,” says guitarist Mick Jones. “As we move into the digital age, we are always looking for new ways to make our music available in the most innovative manner. To walk away from our concerts with an immediate download of the once-in-a-lifetime moments meets that criteria.
“Furthermore, the ability to provide funds from StereoCast downloads to our high school choir partners music programs and to The Grammy Foundation’s music in schools initiatives furthers a cause close to our hearts.”

Foreigner have announced the first dates of a tour in support of the February 5 release of “In Concert.Unplugged”, the band’s first-ever live acoustic album.
The project captures the group in concert at the Ford Motor Company Conference & Event Center in Detroit, MI last August at a benefit for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. As the largest charitable supporter of T1D research, JDRF has invested nearly $2B in research over the past 45 years and is sponsoring scientific research in 17 countries worldwide.
