Foreigner Journey Experience
If you came of age in the late 1970s and 1980s, the music of Foreigner and Journey was the soundtrack of your life. With ballads and anthems, songs like Foreigner’s “I Don’t Want to Live Without You,” “Waiting for a Girl Like You,” and “I Want to Know What Love Is,” and Journey’s “Who’s Crying Now,” “Open Arms,” and “Don’t Stop Believing,’” are etched into our collective memories. They also made the groups two of the most successful bands of their era.
Foreigner, a British-American rock group formed in New York City in 1976, is one of the world’s best-selling bands, with worldwide sales of more than 80 million records. Journey, founded in San Francisco, had 25 gold and platinum albums and 19 Top-40 singles in the United States. “Don’t Stop Believin’” became a worldwide phenomenon and Rolling Stone ranked it among the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It is the best-selling digital track from the 20 th century and, in 2021, received the Grammy Hall of Fame award.
Now, the Foreigner Journey Experience recreates the sounds of both of these legendary bands. The group, which has been together since 2014, is made up of veteran musicians, including Sean Byrne on lead vocals, John Dischart on keyboard, Uncle Joe on bass, John Pellegrenelli on drums and Rich Antonellia and Peter Tentindo on guitar. Their goal is to bring the sights and sound of Foreigner and Journey to fans of the groups and to a new generation of fans. Using the repertoire of both bands and a few surprises, they bring together the music of two great bands that helped define the “magic era” of classic rock.
The Foreigner Journey Experience is more than a tribute band. The group is a time machine with an infectious energy that draws you in.
Just don’t stop believin’.
