Europe cover Bob Marley's 'No Woman No Cry' during show
Foreigner performed their hit singles ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’, ‘Cold As Ice’ and ‘Waiting For A Girl Like You’.
Band founder Mick Jones was the sole original member of the group in the line-up. The rocker performed alongside a six-piece band made up of players who have performed under the band name over the last six years.
Setting their stall out early on, singer Kelly Hansen walked across the top of the stage barrier shaking fans’ hands as the group performed ‘Cold As Ice’. They played only one song (‘When It Comes To Love’) from their 2009 album ‘Can’t Slow Down’, packing the majority of their set with songs from their first five albums.
“It is really great to be back in England, it has been a long time,” Jones said prior to launching into ‘Feels Like The First Time’. He then commented on the Roundhouse‘s recent facelift: “This place has improved a lot since we last played here.”
As Foreigner brought their set to a close Hansen told the crowd: “This is a historical place so I want you to reach out and put your arm around the person next to you,” before performing 1985 UK and US Number One ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’.
Earlier Swedish metal veterans Europe covered Bob Marley‘s ‘No Woman No Cry’ midway through their 1988 single ‘Superstitious’. Frontman Joey Tempest spent much of the show swinging his mic stand around before jumping down to the front barrier to shake fans’ hands during ‘Rock The Night’.
The band ended their show to huge cheers as they introduced their famous 1986 UK chart topper ‘The Final Countdown’.
