Nice to see. Multiple clips on youtube. Glad Kelly and Lou got to share the stage. Al Greenwood and Ian McDonald also appeared.

I had read a year or two back that Foreigner were considering a 40th anniversary reunion of Foreigner's "Double Vision" lineup. It had sounded to me at the time like the plan was to do an entire tour with that lineup.

Lou's come along way. Every year, he has gotten better. Inspiring.

Love Lou.
So glad to see him "fronting" Foreigner once again.

Great to see this, thanks for posting. Lou is my 3rd favorite singer behind Plant and Paul Rogers. Very cool and happy Mick and Lou are back as performers and good friends. Even if only for one night

Fans are what matters and this kind of thing makes me happy as a human being. Let's see more. Fans chanting Lou, Lou Lou.

Kudos to Kelly for playing along. He knows he is Lou's protege and wouldn't be where he is without him.

Slightly off-topic but....I can't believe Kelly still sounds this good. Been with the band now since 2005.

All I can think now is, Steve and Arnel. Why the hell not, what's to lose?

Come on Steve! Please! With sugar on top.

Shit! I knew Gramm has been improving in leaps and bounds the last few years, but he sounds damn great here. Sure, some of the top end is gone, but the attitude, the vibe, the timbre... it's all there. Love it.

Seems like such a class act too. His book from a few years back was a good read. For once, I didn't come away thinking less of the guy I read about.

Yes. Every year he has improved. The first few years after surgery he really had no business being on stage. One more album (non-religious) would be great.

This is such a great song. Much of Lou's, how do I want to say it, power & energy is gone...but even a Lou at 75% bests most people.

Yes sir. That was good, too. And Jim also came across as a class act.

on a side note, listening to a lot of Lou Gramm w/ Foreigner tracks since the reunion, never bought this CD the very best and beyond, but spun Mr Moonlight many many times. (A very underappreciated CD)

Never will understand how this track never became a hit,

Lou is my 3rd favorite singer only behind Jimi Jamison and Steve Perry.

I'm a big Paul Rodgers fan as well.
