For ’80s rockers it was all about the hair, as well as the hits, and Foreigner still have plenty of fully-functioning follicles between them.

The big news for fans is that they’ll be bringing their fine set of barnets and plenty of popular tunes to Portsmouth Guildhall on April 9.

Special guests will be Final Countdown stars Europe and fellow ’80s rockers FM.

Foreigner are responsible for some of rock and roll’s biggest hits including Cold As Ice, Juke Box Hero, Waiting For A Girl Like You and the number one hit I Want To Know What Love Is.

They have ten multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits to their name.

Originally formed in 1976 by veteran musician Mick Jones (who hails from Portsmouth) and fellow Briton and ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald, along with American vocalist Lou Gramm, Foreigner have been through a few line-up changes but over the years have become one of the world’s best-selling bands.

Europe will be performing songs from their last four albums as well as their classic tracks. The band’s ninth recording Bag of Bones was declared the 16th best rock album of 2012 by Classic Rock magazine.

Last year saw FM, originally formed in 1984, releasing albums Rockville and Rockville II.
