Original FOREIGNER Reunion Celebrated On 'Double Vision: Then And Now' DVD And Blu-Ray

With more than 80 million albums sold and 16 Top 30 hits, FOREIGNER is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world. Now, "Foreigner - Double Vision: Then And Now" takes viewers behind the scenes as original bandmembers join Mick Jones and FOREIGNER's current lineup for the very first time in the band's 40-year history. Both incarnations of the band share the same stage for an epic performance.

Watch rock and roll history with one of music's most anticipated reunion events as "Foreigner - Double Vision: Then And Now" celebrates the 40th anniversary of the band's multi-platinum 1978 album "Double Vision" with a masterful live performance of the band's biggest hits, filmed at Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.

Original members Lou Gramm, Al Greenwood, Dennis Elliott, Ian McDonald and Rick Wills take the stage with Mick Jones and FOREIGNERKelly Hansen, Tom Gimbel, Jeff Pilson, Michael Bluestein, Bruce Watson and Chris Frazier — to rock through some of the best-selling songs that bring back the memories that make it feel like the first time for both long-time fans and new generations.

Says Jones: "This was a show that I will always remember. Sharing the stage with the guys that shaped FOREIGNER in the beginning and the stellar musicians that carry the flag in the new millennium was a truly emotional moment."

"We wanted to stage an elaborate production for the very first 'Foreigner - Then And Now' reunion concert," says award-winning executive producer Barry Summers of Rock Fuel Media, who created this explosive rock celebration."Something unlike any other previous FOREIGNER show has captured on film, that both visually and sonically breathes new life into their amazing classic songs — the songs that I grew up on — for the fans to enjoy for many years to come. I believe we achieved that in this film and live album."

Filmed in 4K Ultra HD using over 24 camera positions, the concert film features a stunning multimedia set design, with custom CGI animation, lasers, fog, and elaborate FX that elevate this powerful performance to new levels.
