It's Urgent: Foreigner to play Ruth Eckerd Hall on Jan. 15



Foreigner Sorry about the headline. Another earworm for a Monday. But it's important news so I went with the obvious song-title cliche: Foreigner is set to play Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall on Jan. 15.

Eddie Money is the special guest. (About time. It's been maybe a year since we last saw Eddie. He doesn't write. He doesn't call.)

Foreigner's gig looks like it's part of a short, weather-friendly winter tour by the band. Click here to check for dates closer to you.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 20. Prices are $85.00, $59.50 and $49.50, but that's a small price to hear Foreigner's classics live. And of course that means the obligatory top 5 list. 


5. URGENT (1981): "I'm not looking for a love that will last. I know what I need and I need it fast."

4. HOT BLOODED (1978): "Now it's up to you, we can make a secret rendezvous. Just me and you, I'll show you lovin' like you never knew."

3. DOUBLE VISION (1978): "My mind is racing, but my body's in the lead."

2. WAITING FOR A GIRL LIKE YOU (1981): "It feels so right, so warm and true. I need to know if you feel it too."

1. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS (1984): "In my life there's been heartache and pain. I don't know if I can face it again."
