For one night only

Legendary bands Foreigner and Journey are giants of the AOR
(Adult Orientated Rock) and Classic Rock genres, attracting huge audiences as
live acts since forming in the 1970’s. The two bands have achieved massive
commercial and critical success and both sold in excess of 80 million albums,
with their supreme musical quality ensuring that they’ve never been victims of
trends or passing fashions, and even their earliest hits are still being played
on radio shows worldwide every day.

Sadly for those in the UK, their shows over here have been
few and far between, and most fans of their music have not experienced the
thrill of hearing it played live.

Thankfully, however, the next best thing is here in the
shape of the award-winning band A FOREIGNERS JOURNEY.

A Foreigners Journey proudly won both the “UK’s Number 1
Tribute to Foreigner
” and the “UK’s Number 1 Tribute to Journey
awards at the National Tribute Music Awards.

Their talent has also been acknowledged by Jeff
Pilson, bass player of Foreigner,
who said “Check out this
amazing band, they rock!”

They have toured throughout the UK and Europe for the last
12 years, headlined a number of festivals and played to packed theaters and
venues, safely establishing themselves as one of the most respected and known
tribute shows around.

Featuring the incredible vocals and stage presence of Adam J
Oades, and cherry picking the very best and most iconic songs from each of the
two bands, to create a carefully balanced set- list, including bonafide rock
classics such as the massive anthem Don’t Stop Believin’, Cold As Ice,
Separate Ways, Juke Box Hero, Feels Like The First Time,
to gentler
power ballads like the hits I Want To Know What Love Is, Faithfully,
Waiting For A Girl Like You, Open Arms
and many more, A Foreigners
Journey take things far beyond a mere ‘tribute act’ and turn their show into a
living, breathing and powerful experience.

Ian Danter of Planet Rock summed
up their show in his review “Great mix of classic songs delivered
impeccably”

It is guaranteed to be an evening to remember and a real
treat for all those who love quality, commercial rock, performed with passion.

For one night only

Featuring Peter Young as Meat Loaf.

While singing in Spain, Peter delivered a captivating performance of Meat Loaf's iconic songs "2 out of 3" and "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth." A gentleman from the audience suggested that Peter should assemble a Tribute Show to Meat Loaf. Taking this advice to heart, Peter has risen to become one of the premier tributes to the rock legend. After perfecting his performances in Cyprus from 2008 to 2012, he has now firmly established himself in the UK and Europe as one of the most sought-after artists, known for his striking resemblance and sound-alike persona.

In addition to gaining recognition as a top solo act, Peter has portrayed Meat Loaf in the highly popular theatre production "ROCK AND ROLL DREAMS COME TRUE." Over the past 7 years, he has been a part of the live theatre show "ROCK AND ROLL DREAMS COME TRUE" and, more recently, has performed with his own band, 'All Revved Up.' Renowned for infusing passion and emotion into his performances, Peter authentically captures the essence of the stories told in Jim Steinman's lyrically rich songs.
