Next up for the return of Rock in Central Illinois Foreigner takes over the stage for the evening at the Peoria Civic Center Theater in Peoria, Illinois. This Sold Out show did not disappoint.

Forming in 1976 in New York City the band Foreigner has been a staple of Rock Music for 40 years. Built by Mick Jones, Ian McDonald, Lou Gramm, Dennis Elliott, Al Greenwood, and Ed Gagliardi hits such as "Double Vison" and "Cold As Ice" have been in the heart and minds of many. Missing from this evening on tour the only original member Mick Jones who citing medical issues will try and make appearnaces at some show on the tour. Even though he was not there the hand picked musicians including Vocalist Kelly Hansen, Bassist Jeff Pilson, Keyboardist Michael Bluestein, Rhythm Guitarist Bruce Watson, Drummer Chris Frazier,and Guitarist Luis Maldonado were a definite sight to see. Energy levels were high and the entertainment never waivered for the evening with this supergroup. Playing all the greatest hits that the crowd was looking forward to including "Head Games", "Dirty White Boy", and "Hot Blooded". Many fans had no issue with Mick missing as the sound was suberb and the setlist was perfect.
