Gawd .... are they still going?

Or maybe it's because they're known as Reisen and Ausländer, here?

Re: Journey & Foreigner in Winterthur, Sunday 6/19

How many of the originals are in those bands ...?
Steve Perry gave up years ago
Lou Gramm looked like he had a few issues there !

Since read that Lou has had brain cancer - so I'll take my last comment back!

Re: Journey & Foreigner in Winterthur, Sunday 6/19

So, nobody going? What's wrong with you old EFers? Forgotten how wonderful the 80's were? Have you stopped believin? No longer waiting for a girl like you? No jukebox heros anymore?

Well then, I'll just have to take up this golden oldies opportunity by myself. With anti-aging cream in one hand and a blanket for a nap in the other, I'm hyping myself up for this pre-retirement adventure. I'll give a full report tomorrow.

...... or just think that 80's American glam rock has had it's time and place, and should be left to rest in peace - along with big hair, shoulder pads and tight trousers.

There are notable exception to the rule including the Rolling Stones. They still give a brilliant concert.

The Stones aren't 80's American glam rock, though.

... and I agree, there are notable music exceptions from the 80's that have time travelled OK - artists and songs - but in general terms glam rock seemed to echo the lifestyle and fashions of the 80's - that as a decade was always struggling for a unique identity, after the exuberance and excesses of of the 60's and 70's (the latter, we only realised after the 80's had begun).

For me, when I hear old music, it always takes me back to the time and place where I was, when it was first released. Perhaps the 80's is not always to where I want to be returned regularly.

I prefer to get my flares and platforms out and have some Slade, Mud, Sweet, Bowie, EJ, Gary Glitter (oops), et al.

Re: Journey & Foreigner in Winterthur, Sunday 6/19

Quick Review:

Night Ranger: We got there too late so I can't say
Saga: OK
Kansas: Fantastic
Foreigner: The best. Knocked our socks off
Journey: A disappointment. They played more stuff off their new album than their old hits. No Sherrie or Open Arms.

The audience was 40ish to 60ish. The Eishalle was a nice place for this venue. All the bands played live and were top knotch performers. I'd definitely go to another similar venue again.

Grade: A-

Hi Olygirl we also enjoyed it a lot!

Here is my rating (and sorry I didn't reply earlier in the week, didn't see the post):
-Night Ranger was ok, at least they had a bit of connection with the audience
-Saga: disappointed. I felt them distant. No wind him up (difficult to play, maybe that's why), social orphan or Amnesia, my three favorites!
-Kansas: Fantastic
-Foreigner: superb! I was hungry for more. Loved Urgent!
-Journey: worthy our three-hours trip to the concert! I am not too much into open arms, so not a miss for me. Don't stop believin' was just too good! and the finishing with Anyway you want it was perfect (btw Sherrie is with Steve Perry as solo singer, not part of the Journey repertoire, so I am afraid it will be a bit difficult to have that one ). Arnel Pineda simply revived the band. Agree too many new songs (three too many! ), but I guess, that is a good thing (although am with you, not the best!)

Grade: A++ for less than a 100CHF it was a real bang for our buck!
