5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Alive and Rockin'!!! November 11, 2008
By jan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mick Jones and company -- you rock!!! This is just a fabulous Foreigner performance!!! (Sorry about Lou Gramm -- loved him!!) Kelly Hansen is just great! He pours tons of energy and his soul into this concert. His voice is strong and he is an entertainer!! Mick Jones is one of the the most amazing guitarists in the world!! Thom Gimbal on sax, flute, rhythm guitar; bassist Jeff Pilson (Dokken); Michael Blumenthal keyboards and Jason Bonham are all on top of their games. No ballads here as the venue is the "Bang Your Head" festival in Germany -- they only have an hour alotted. There is an even harder edge to the songs. The guitar prelude to "Urgent" rocks; Thom Gimbal just rips on the sax part and "Juke Box Hero/Whole Lotta Love" brings down the house -- Jason is amazing. We were fortunate to see Foreigner live two weeks ago and they are truly better than ever!!! Kelly leapt from the stage into the audience and was hopping on the chair backs which delighted the audience!! I was two feet away from Mick and if anyone doubts his guitar greatness -- I assure you he is the best he's ever been. The band came to a nearby restaurant for dinner and graciously autographed my DVD! This is a must buy DVD! (Kelly does use a bit of profanity on the DVD -- no problem -- that was a tough looking crowd!!) He did not do that at our concert -- they were truly a classy show. If you want to hear great renditions of the ballads and a longer program, do buy "Live at Deer Creek" (1993). Lou Gramm is with them on this DVD and sings "That Was Yesterday," with Mick on keyboard -- outside -- beautiful photograpy. "Until the End of Time," "Waiting for A Girl..", "I Wanna Know What Love Is," -- all there and beautifully performed. If you have both of these DVDs, you'll have the best of rock and ballad; Lou and Kelly and of course, Mick and the band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds Like The First Time October 1, 2008
Format:DVD
Lots of folks have a soft spot for Foreigner, few of us, however, would admit to be card carrying fans hoping for a Foreigner come back. Fact is Foreigner had some killer guitar riffs and great hooks yet were, all these years later, remembered for a couple of ballads that came to define the worst in radio overplay. That Foreigner was done was pretty much a given since more than one reunion attempt between Mick Jones and Lou Gramm never really got much traction. Only one thing...No one told Mick Jones this. So now, a good 25 years past Foreigner's prime Mick is back with a new Foreigner in which he's the only original member. This could be a pathetic attempt at a shameless money grab...Or, could it?

Against all odds, the new Foreigner is really the best sounding Foreinger...ever! This really is a shocker! Mick Jones proves he is the real heart and soul of the band, that he can not just carry the torch, but build a better band around veteran journeymen who can replicate that original Foreigner sound and propel it further. You may think bogus...No one can replace Lou Gramm. Obviously you haven't seen this DVD with Kelly Hansen who not only can sound like Gramm, but looks like Steven Tyler and has both a range and stage presence that Gramm, at least of late, just couldn't match. Foreigner is baaaack!

Alive & Rockin' lives up to it's title and then some. It's not the heavily produced live concert tightly controlled in both lighting and sound for DVD, but rather a document of a set turned in at a German heavy metal fest. This actually seems to work in it's favor as it's "all killer and no filler".

4.0 out of 5 stars Its not Lou, but it will do!! September 14, 2008
Format:DVD
As a long time fan of Foreigner, I must say I was very disappointed with their 25th anniversary DVD. So, when I heard about this new release, I was a bit leary. While waiting for it to arrive I dug out my Hurricane CD, and while listening, I could hear similiarities in the vocals. Kelly has a tremendous voice and does indeed deliver a great performance in this concert. Again it was just great to see Mick Jones and the rest of the band having just a great time performing. I think the DVD, was well produced, I would have like more close-ups, but the sound is great and kept that live feel to it. While no one can replace Lou Gramm, this concert provides a refuse to those who miss that energy that Foreigner bought to the stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars FOREIGNER REALLY ROCKS - Must Own DVD & Must See Live January 20, 2008
Format:DVD
"Alive & Rockin" is EXACTLY what FOREIGNER is, and this DVD is just one example of the band's musical range, steller performances and songs that are always "in" because they are true rock classics.

I was very lucky to be able to see them live and meet them on thier New Years Eve 2007 tour. They were AWESOME!

If you love classic rock, you'll really love JASON BONHAM on drums. He humbly carries the torch and his Dad (Led Zeppelin's legendary drummer John Bonham) is right in Jason's heart.

Mick Jones never lost his touch - he jams with fantastic guitar & keyboard talent. This DVD will bring back memories and the band today will definitely make it easy to create new ones.

OUTSTANDING ROCK - 10 STARS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Foreigner's Best & Hardest Rocking DVD January 9, 2008
Format:DVD
Foreigner is one of those 70's/80's hard rock groups who are often remembered more for the 1 or 2 ballads that got radio airplay than the multitude of rockers that filled their albums. Finally, their hard rocking roots and musicianship are properly documented on this 2007 DVD. I've seen the new band 3 times now personally, and I can honestly say that they are more energized and working harder than most other bands of their era. It's like they have a new lease on life. Where some bands go out each summer and kinda go through the motions...and don't get me wrong I'm not saying they don't enjoy themselves...Foreigner is playing like a brand new band honestly wanting to prove themselves to the world. They succeed on this DVD.

Recorded in Germany in 2007 as part of the annual Bang Your Head festival, Foreigner might seem an odd choice to play a set alongside numerous heavy metal and thrash bands. But as you'll see in this DVD, they win the crowd over with no problem. That in itself says a lot about this DVD. Their entire 60 minute set is included, which is the amount of time they were given since several other bands played that day too. Being a shorter show than usual, and being a metal fest, their ballads have been eliminated from this show. The songs overall have had a much heavier sound over the past 3 years, mainly with the additions of Jason Bonham...recently of Led Zep fame...on drums and Jeff Pilson of Dokken on bass. The newer arrangements of their older songs are sung by ex-Hurricane singer Kelly Hansen, who is one of the most animated front men out there these days. He really works the crowd. The group is rounded out by long time keyboardist Jeff Jacobs and multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel.

Foreigner is currently working on a new album for release hopefully this fall, but this DVD will give you an excellent introduction to the current band. Highly recommended if you're a Foreigner fan or like melodic hard rock in general.
