BUT unlike the previous edition on Blu Ray ...this has some songs that were dropped from it so this is the preferred edition.
If you have the Sound Stage show on regular DVD you have this show..its 105 minutes.
I would have given it 4 stars because the other Blu Ray by Foreigner Rockin at the Ryman [Blu-ray]
beats this hands down....while the shows are similar the other Blur Ray has 4 songs from THIS show as a bonus, along with three very well produced recent music Videos AND a couple of interviews with Mick and Kelly. What keeps this at 5 stars is the very low price I paid Amazon for it....so value for money they even out in my opinion...and I'm glad to have both!
by the way ...both shows were shot in widescreen and HD so they both look amazing!
FOREIGNER LIVE features the most current line up for the band in 2008 when this was made. Released before, the DVD is now available in blu-ray format, increasing not just the great picture quality but the sound as well. When it comes to watching AND listening to this great band perform in 5.1 DTS you'll know that investing in the surround system is well worth doing.
The line up of the band featured here includes Jones, Tom Gimbel who toured with Aerosmith, Jeff Pilson who was one of the original members of Dokken, Michael Bluestein who played with Boz Skaggs and Stevie Nicks, Jason Bonham son of Led Zepplin drummer John Bonham and new lead singer Kelly Hansen. All of them are insanely talented individuals but it is Hansen who pulls off the most amazing thing for any member in the group. That's because Hansen, as lead singer, sounds nearly exactly like original singer Lou Gramm. Face it, the vocals are what make most bands recognizable. To find someone who not only can perform as if he's been there all along but to make the songs sound like they did originally is amazing.
The DVD was part of the SoundStage series that filmed in Chicago and used a standard backdrop with screens displaying the name of the featured guest.Read more ›
If you haven't figured out by now that Mick Jones' writing and producing IS Foreigner and you only know half the story. The music, the sound and the energy, it's all there with the new Foreigner and for three decades, they are still making great Rock `N Roll for us "the classic rockers" and the new generation.

I had a free evening on Friday and decided it was "concert night". I adjusted the room lighting and reached behind the sub woofer to advance the volume control to maximum and then backed it off a few ticks just for maintaining peace and tranquility within the home environment. I poured myself a generous portion of Kentucky Bourbon for sippin' and inserted the Foreigner Blu-ray disc in the player.
I set the audio to the DTS mode and made necessary adjustments to the AV/receiver for 7.1 surround. I hit play and was immediately overwhelmed with a powerful audio signal that was strong and clear. Each instrument and vocal was well defined with none over shadowing another. I was totally impressed as I sat back, sipped and relaxed while enjoying a well produced concert. I never considered Foreigner one of my top bands but was impressed as I remembered each song as the concert proceeded. I really enjoyed their acoustic and vocals version of "Say You Will". It was one that stuck with me several days just running through my mind's virtual music track.
I have most all of the tracks from the concert on vinyl stashed away in old fruit crates in the basement but the AV mode of listening and watching will keep the vinyl as just fond keepsakes. The "Sound Stage" format has been releasing some pretty decent concert discs recently. I will watch this Blu-ray concert many times in weeks to come.

If you don't care that this isn't the original band (I think that only the guitar player is an original member) then this is a great show. Kelly Hansen is amazing on vocals! Read morePublished 1 day ago by paulodog

Loved it... The lead vocal sounds just like the original guy...Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
Great sound and picture quality. Although Kelly Hansen is good at lead vocals, his voice is different and therefor not as good as the original songs by Lou Gramm. Read morePublished 4 months ago by K. E. Nowak Nowak
