Styx and Foreigner announced they will hit the road next summer for a co-headlining tour, with special guest John Waite. The trek, dubbed The Renegades & Juke Box Heroes tour, kicks-off June 11 in Grand Rapids, Mich., and is set to wrap on Aug. 28 in Sioux Falls, S.D.
Foreigner vocalist Kelly Hansen shared: “We always look forward to being with our buddies in Styx. We’ve done so many things with them. They’re absolute professionals, which is what you want. You want to be on the road with someone you can count on – not some crazy, weird, ego-driven, maniacal bullshit fest, that every day there’s some new thing you have to deal with. They’re just spot on … but they’re also very funny, very affable guys.”
Styx’s Tommy Shaw also promises “a hell of a night of classic rock music. I heard ‘Cold as Ice’ and I remember listening to that and going, ‘Who is that?’ I was blown away. That was my first exposure to Foreigner. The hits just kept coming after that. When I finally got to see them live, I thought, ‘Man, this is somebody that we can hopefully eventually work with.’ It’s so nice that the music still lives and we can all go on these kinds of tours.”
