Foreigner Farewell Tour kicks off the State Fair Grandstand August 8th

 The Missouri State Fair is excited to announce the first concert for the 2024 event.

The FOREIGNER Farewell Tour kicks off the State Fair Grandstand, presented by CFM Insurance, on opening night of the 2024 Missouri State Fair, Thursday, Aug. 8, with Maggie Rose.

With 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits, FOREIGNER is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 80 million.

Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems including “Juke Box Hero,” “Cold As Ice,” “Hot Blooded,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You,” “Feels Like The First Time,” “Urgent,” “Head Games,” “Say You Will,” “Dirty White Boy,” “Long, Long Way From Home” and the worldwide #1 hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” FOREIGNER still rocks the charts more than 40 years into the game with massive airplay and continued Billboard Top 200 album success.

FOREIGNER began their Farewell Tour in July 2023. The goal is to get to all the cities that the band has played since its reformation in 2004, including the Missouri State Fair!

Acclaimed singer/songwriter Maggie Rose has shared her empowering new single, “Underestimate Me.” The galvanizing anthem, delivered with an assured confidence, is the launching pad for an exciting new chapter in Maggie’s musical journey, and her first release with her new label partner, independent powerhouse Big Loud.

Maggie has been hailed for her passionate individualism and influences spanning rock, soul, Americana, folk and funk. Her previous lauded studio albums were embraced by the likes of Rolling Stone who declared she’s a “star” and NPR Music who called her a “multi-genre powerhouse,” among others. A respected fixture of the Nashville community (she was recently elected Governor of the Recording Academy’s Nashville Chapter and has played the iconic Grand Ole Opry almost 100 times), she has carved out a unique path for herself, refusing to be pigeonholed in any one genre.

Tickets to this show and State Fair Grandstand concerts to be announced will go on sale to the public starting at 9 a.m., May 21 through Etix. More information about State Fair concerts can be found on the Fair's website.
