Lou Gramm to miss Foreigner reunion shows due to health issues

Original Foreigner frontman Lou Gramm will miss some upcoming reunion shows with his old band due to health issues.

Gramm was hospitalized at the Unity Hospital at Park Ridge in Rochester, NY last week with a severe respiratory infection, dehydration and fatigue; the singer had hoped to be ready to appear with Foreigner, as well as at some scheduled shows with Asia, but his doctor has pronounced him unable to perform while the 69-year-old continues his recovery.

"I’m very disappointed about not being able to perform at the Foreigner Double Vision: Then & Now shows for all the fans,” says Gramm. “My doctor insists if I pushed myself to perform, I would be in big trouble. So doctor’s orders, I ride the bench. Rock on!"

The Foreigner Double Vision: Then & Now tour will go on with other original members as they join Mick Jones and the group’s current lineup.

“We will all miss Lou at our upcoming shows,” adds Jones, “and we join all his family, friends, and fans in wishing him a speedy recovery.”

Requests for refunds may be addressed to the appropriate the point purchase of the original ticket order prior to the concert date.

On November 15, Foreigner will release “Double Vision: Then And Now”, a live package featuring performances from a pair of fall 2017 reunion performances at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort, Mount Pleasant, MI.
