Foreigner have released a performance clip of “Urgent” from their new concert movie, Foreigner With the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus.
The recordings were made in Switzerland during two shows in May 2017, as Mick Jones and Foreigner performed alongside the orchestra, which was conducted by Ernst van Tiel.
In May 2017, FOREIGNER performed two sold-out shows in Lucerne, Switzerland, together with the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, conducted by Ernst Van Tiel. “Foreigner With The 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus” represents this year-long collaboration between FOREIGNER founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones and Grammy-nominated composing/arranging team Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer, exploring the deep symphonic potential of these classic and iconic songs. Eggar, Juilliard protégé and cellist/pianist/composer, and Palmer, producer/writer/percussionist, have toured, performed and recorded with artists such as Paul Simon, James Taylor, Patti Smith, COLDPLAY and many more.
Says Mick Jones: “I could never have imagined when I set out to create FOREIGNER 40 years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later. Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer’s orchestral arrangements have shown us a new symphonic dimension of our music, which I hope our fans will enjoy.”
