Strap yourself in! Europe in America once again!”

Foreigner — who released Double Vision, Then & Now in celebration of the 40th anniversary of their iconic album in November — will also perform as part of a Las Vegas residency at the Venetian Resort this year. The group will perform five shows from January 24th and February 1st.
Europe – is a Swedish rock band formed in Upplands Väsby in 1979, by vocalist Joey Tempest, guitarist John Norum, bassist Peter Olsson, and drummer Tony Reno. They got a major breakthrough in Sweden in 1982 by winning the televised competition “Rock-SM” (Swedish Rock Championships): it was the first time this competition was held, and Europe became a larger success than the competition itself.. Since their formation, Europe has released eleven studio albums, three live albums, three compilations and twenty-four music videos.
