Foreigner have announced their official farewell tour. The classic rockers will hit the road on a final “Historic Farewell Tour” in 2023.

As for dates, the North American leg of Foreigner’s farewell tour sets off on July 6 in Alpharetta, Georgia, and hits 32 dates before closing out on Sept. 3 in Holmdel, New Jersey. Opening on the tour will be Loverboy, who opened for Foreigner on the road back in 1982. More tour dates are forthcoming, both domestic and international. Touring is expected to run through the end of 2024.

Artist pre-sales for the newly announced shows start Tuesday (Nov. 15) at 10 a.m. ET, and a Live Nation pre-sale starts Thursday (Nov. 17) at 9 a.m. local time with code HEADLINE.

In a statement, Mick Jones said, “Many years ago, I wrote a song called ‘Feels Like The First Time’ and today we are launching one last worldwide tour. We will be presenting a show that I know will have the same enthusiasm as our very first appearances. The tour will start this summer in America and we hope to get to every place that we have played over the last several years. While I’m sure our fans will have mixed feelings about the end of the road for the band, I know our shows are going to delight audiences everywhere.”
