This is Brian. Little did we know when we pulled into the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis today that we were sharing the stage with Foreigner! I could barely contain myself all day… mom, we opened for Foreigner! I’ve been waiting, for a gig like this, to come into my life, yeah waiting… here were some highlights:
* During “Hot Blooded,” when Lou Graham walked to the edge of the stage and sang “C’mon baby, do you do more than dance?” — I screamed like a little girl! They played all the hits!
* The sax solo during “Urgent” — that guy dropped to his knees he was so into it! And then, after the solo, as he walked back to his riser, he did a 360!
* During the encore of “I Wanna Know What Love Is” Lou took the entire microphone stand and turned it toward the crowd so it was picking up the audience’s voices! I sang my ass off! You wanna know what love is? I love Foreigner!
P.S… Lou Graham has not aged gracefully.
