On April 27 1978, after their self-titled debut album had spent a year in the US Top 20, rock’s conquering heroes played a sold-out show at London’s legendary music venue, the Rainbow Theatre.
The performance highlighted the essence of a group who would go on to become one of the best-selling bands of all time: Foreigner.
Opening with ‘Long, Long Way From Home’, the band’s legion of fans were treated to a magnificent display of musicianship and performance, including the hit singles, ‘Feels Like The First Time’ and ‘Cold As Ice’. The latter was released today on YouTube and can be seen in the player below.
Forty years on, this definitive performance by the band’s original lineup has been restored from the original film reels, remixed and remastered for the upcoming release, Live at the Rainbow ’78.
