A Foreigners Journey are delighted to bring to you this amazing spectacular show which pays tribute to two of the biggest rock bands of our time, performing one classic rock anthem after another.
Both Foreigner and Journey collectively have sold well over 130 million albums worldwide, including several top ten hits around the world. After completing an arena tour supporting Journey with John Parr, Yorkshire guitarist John Oxley was keen to replicate the magic of Journey again on stage, together with bass player Paul Flanaghan who’s musical collaboration of over 20 years was destined to continue as both felt strongly that the musical mix of these two great bands would be a perfect combination.
Following the bands debut sell out show in January 2009, 'A Foreigners Journey' have played over 100 shows throughout the UK and also performed Rhodes Rock 2009’ and Rhodes Rock 2010 festivals in Greece. This years Rhodes Rock will mark the 3rd sucess! In August 2009 the band joined forces with award winning singer/songwriter Jimi Anderson whose vocals and stage presence are guaranteed to captivate you. Saxophone player Chris Backhouse completes the exciting line-up, taking this dual tribute show of Foreigner and Journey to another level.
A Foreigners Journey’s foundations seem to be firmly set alongside some of Europe’s most established and respected tribute bands around today. Don’t miss them at a theatre, club or festival near you very soon, you are guaranteed to be entertained!!

‘Great idea, Foreigner and Journey, and it works, they look and sound superb’ Tom Russell – 96.3 ROCK RADIO
‘Whether your into tribute bands or not you can't help thinking! ' A Foreigners Journey' have really got something here. Mick Burgess 'METAL EXPRESS RADIO
'This was their second year at Rhodes Rock and this year they came with a new singer. Jimmy looks and sounds like Steve Perry until you talk to him, when his Scottish brogue belies his true origins. The Foreigners, then, were the wild card, but delivered tremendous energy from bassist Paul and guitarist John, they absolutely nailed songs such as Waiting For A Girl Like You, Don't Stop Believing, Head Games and Separate Ways.
