Best wishes to CT on the summer tour! It is always interesting to see the fans of other bands react to the CT show and CT usually garnishes positive reviews and gains new fans. The bonus for me would be to catch a date with Lou Gramm, although that looks like it is going to be almost as hard as winning the Power Ball.

RE: Cheap trick summer tour 2017 with foreigner
I'm happy for those who get to see a show in their neck of the woods, and realize that the payday from these package tours in larger venues are needed to keep the machine that is "Cheap Trick, Inc." viable. Because if it was just an endless series of gigs in casinos, theaters and state fairs they might have stopped touring long ago. That's reality. This is how they get paid.

But I'm really glad I have a proper CT as headliner show in a theater to choose from, rather than the hassle of a multi-band show at Shoreline, where they're asking $776/ticket for 3rd row in the Cheap Trick - Side Stage Package. Which beats the $998/ticket for the Foreigner Ultimate VIP, I suppose.

Glad I got to see CT a few times on the casino/state fair circuit when they were headliners. Not interested in these package shows with bland, boring has-beens. If the only way for CT to tour now is on a package show, i'd rather see them sharing the bill with someone worthy of the honor.

"Foreigner, Bonham- not cool."

Can not believe they will charge for two karaoke bands wrapped around the real thing. Oh well, the L.A. dates do not include Bonham so perhaps this will be like the Frampton tour where we will get a 90 minute set. Then I won't mind CT opening; it will be like the senior citizen early bird special at a restaurant-arrive the minute it starts and leave before the crowds arrive.  Big Grin

Jeez. Imagine that. Mis-information on the internet! LOL! I have to admit I'm pretty tired of CT doing the summer package tours with bands from the same era. It feels very stale IMO and even more so because these same bands and line-ups have played at Starlight for the past couple years and most haven't even released new material. I know I shouldn't complain as it's still awesome they're even playing and still sound great. However, it was only a couple years ago when CT played the VooDoo Lounge at Harrahs here in KC as a headliner and KILLED IT. Place was packed and it had such a great vibe that made it feel like you were back seeing them in their heyday. (the word heyday looks odd to me typed vs spoken! LOL)

Was at that Voodoo show also, my favorite CT show ever. Punters were going crazy up front, set list was bad ass. Not going to kill them for cashing in on these tours, bigger crowds, more merch money....it's a common sense move for them.

The wife and I saw Foreigner last year. Can they really be called Foreigner if none of the founding members are in the band. Who cares anyway. I am going to see Cheap Trick anyway.

Granpas drunk again and cant resist!!!!!!! This foreigner lead tour is so fucked up the boys have sold their souls gain. Foreigner without Lou, come on what a raping at their prices. Lou is from Rochester NY, Rev on the RedLine is about Lake Ave. and is a real life growing up experience. Juke Box Hero is about the Rochester War Memorial where all the bands played  that Lou listened to as a kid. LOOK, I'M SWEARING! these posers as Foreigner, they are joke. CT is opening for them at this price what an insult!!!!!!!!! Before his tumor Lou could hang with Robin, almost .......... But Mick Jones is a master. LOOK, I'M SWEARING! this tour!!! But if your in the Great UK pay the price and see the boys cause CT is  getting older than me!!!!!!! If you want a chance to see Lou buy  Syracuse NY or  Darien NY. Lou is still in the radio scene in Rochester, NY.
