Mick Jones Trilled Foreigner Will Be Inducted Into Rock Hall

Foreigner cofounder Mick Jones has shared his reaction to the news that after 22 years of eligibility, the legendary band will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the 39th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on October 19, 2024 in Cleveland, OH.

Vanessa Menkes Communications sent over the following: No doubt the appeals from rock & roll royalty including Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant, Slash, together with Jack Black and Mark Ronson helped move the voting membership and fan voters to elevate Foreigner to this high honor.

Mick Jones said, "I was thrilled to learn of Foreigner's nomination, and this confirmation of our coming membership in the home of my peers is a priceless highlight of my career. October 19th will be an emotional day for me, Lou, Al, Dennis, and Rick, and a very special moment for the families of Ian and Ed. The leadership of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Chairman, John Sykes, and Nominating Committee Chairman, Rick Krim, has brought a new era of inclusivity and relevance that reflects all that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame should be, and we are proud to become a part of it. Long may it continue."

Says Foreigner manager and former Atlantic Records Executive Vice President, Phil Carson, "Few bands are more deserving of this honor than FOREIGNER. With more Top Ten hits than Journey and as many as Fleetwood Mac, this accolade is more than timely. FOREIGNER continues to play sold-out shows all over the world, bringing the legacy of great songs and performances to audiences old and new. FOREIGNER will shortly announce a pause in our Farewell Tour in order to play some additional shows as a thank you for the hundreds of thousands of fan votes. Original members, who will soon be Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, often appear with the band and that's always a welcome experience."

The 2024 ceremony will once again stream live on Disney+ with a special airing on ABC at a later date and available on Hulu the next day. The 2023 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony streamed live on Disney+ for the first time ever; the special on ABC reached over 13 million viewers across linear and streaming, and ABC's New Year's Day telecast was the No. 1 entertainment choice among Adults18-49.
