Foreigner is coming to the Adler Theatre in Davenport tomorrow (March 10, 2020).  I was able to talk with lead singer, Kelly Hansen.

With Foreigner having such a rich catalog…I asked him about how they pick a setlist.

 

We discussed how singers are handcuffed a bit on tour.  While the rest of the band is out carousing...the singer has to be on their best behavior in order to keep on top of their game.

I asked about his pre-show rituals and how it's a little different of a backstage area than at his 80's "Hurricane" shows?

 

We also talked about this mindset shift from the 80's band on top of the world to grunge coming in and hitting him with a dose of reality.  He used that to his advantage and chased down a spot in Foreigner.

 

We talked about classic rock and the killer show that's happening at the Adler.
