RENO, Nev. (Sept. 24, 2021) – FOREIGNER’s upcoming performance of “The Greatest Hits of FOREIGNER” scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 26 in the Grand Theatre at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (GSR) in Reno, Nevada has been postponed.
In a statement to fans, FOREIGNER said: “Due to an outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in our touring party, we forced to cancel our upcoming shows in Modesto, Reno, Saratoga, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbara. Further announcements will be made regarding replacement dates and ticketing details shortly.”
Lead singer Kelly Hansen said, “We were very diligent with a tight backstage bubble and were testing the entire entourage every 3 days. It is mystifying how this virus has crept into our camp and all we can say is we are so sorry, and we can’t wait to be able to safely tour again.”
Band manager Phil Carson added, “Last night, we had a positive test and we have taken this step in order to protect the rest of us, venue staff, and our audiences. The band is beyond devastated. They were especially looking forward to playing the orchestral show at the Greek Theater in what is the hometown for most of them.”
Refunds will be available once a new performance date is announcement. Grand Sierra Resort and Casino apologizes for any inconvenience this causes ticket holders.
