Ex-Foreigner Frontman Lou Gramm Bows Out Of Tour Due To Hospitalization

Original Foreigner singer Lou Gramm has had to pull out of some dates with his old band as a result of a recent illness requiring hospitalization. The band posted on their Facebook page saying that Gramm was “hospitalized at the Unity Hospital at Park Ridge in Rochester, N.Y. last week with a severe respiratory infection, dehydration and fatigue.”

Gramm said in the statement: “I’m very disappointed about not being able to perform at the Foreigner Double Vision: Then & Now shows for all the fans. My doctor insists if I pushed myself to perform, I would be in big trouble. So doctor’s orders, I ride the bench. Rock on!”

The Double Vision: Then & Now shows combine Foreigner’s current lineup with three original members — Gramm, Al Greenwood and Ian MacDonald — and Rick Willis, who played bass 1979-91. The dates affected by Gramm’s absence were in Connecticut, New Jersey, California and Washington between Oct. 3 and Oct. 13. While the shows will continue without Gramm, the band are offering refunds, which can be redeemed at the point of purchase.
