This summer, Foreigner will head out on the road in commemoration of its 40th anniversary (as reported by Billboard). The chart-topping band responsible for still-heavily-played songs such as “Juke Box Hero,” “Cold As Ice,” “Hot Blooded” and “I Want To Know What Love Is” will be joined on the outing by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Cheap Trick (read our 2016 chat with singer Robin Zander here) and Jason Bonham (enjoy our 2013 interview here), son of late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.

The news came with this video of lead singer Kelly Hansen surprising some elevator riders with some hits:

Needless to say, that’s an impressive array of acts on the same bill — so this should make for a pretty fun night of music.

Foreigner — Mick Jones (guitar), Kelly Hansen (vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass), Tom Gimbel (guitar, sax), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums) will also be releasing a new compilation album titled 40 – Forty Hits From Forty Years to further the celebrations.
