FOREIGNER - Mick Jones (lead guitar), Kelly
Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums) - have kicked off a "Foreigner Juke Box Heroes Playlist Takeover" which will launch May 8, 2018 to celebrate the release of their latest album, FOREIGNER WITH THE 21ST CENTURY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA & CHORUS.
"Foreigner Juke Box Heroes Playlist Takeover" competition is a fun and engaging way for FOREIGNER fans to celebrate the band's legendary music and the era of music and pop culture they helped define. To kick it all off, FOREIGNER have launched their own rock-themed playlist titled "Juke Box Heroes" which will consist of 40 songs they've hand-picked of 70's hit makers, one-hit wonders, pop radio staples, and covers of classic hit songs by their favorite breaking artists. These are the songs you'll want to turn up to 11 in your Trans-Am and rock out like a Juke Box Hero. It will also include three songs from FOREIGNER WITH THE 21ST CENTURY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA & CHORUS.
They're asking fans to create their own playlists—which must include three songs from the new album — and submit a short message to firstname.lastname@example.org about why they are "a modern-day Juke Box Hero" along with an optional heroic photo of themselves which will be featured on the playlist cover artwork design, if chosen.
Starting May 30, six lucky fans' playlists will be featured on FOREIGNER's Spotify page for one month. Each month after that, from June to November, a new "hero" will be featured on the page. In December, a "Juke Box Hero" grand prize winner will be awarded based on who has generated the most Monthly Listeners on Spotify during their given month. They'll win a trip for two to Toronto, Canada for opening night of FOREIGNER's new musical, Jukebox Hero, including airfare and two-night accommodation.
