Was a big fan of the band in the 70's and 80's and saw them a few times then. I lost a bit of interest when Lou Gramm left the band and couldn't really see how such a distinctive voice could be replaced. But a few days ago, I saw a clip of this DVD on YouTube, thought it looked good and it wasn't much of a gamble for a tenner. All I can say is that I've got dozens of live concert dvd's and this is right there amongst the best! It's a brilliant show; I forgot just how good a guitarist Mick Jones is and whether you think the band isn't really the band without Lou Gramm or not, you need to get this DVD and you'll see just what a fantastic singer Kelly Hansen is! I'm just about to buy the Live in Chicago DVD now. Would absolutely recommend.

Foreigner are one of those bands that i liked a lot but they never had that harder edge that i liked in UFO, Scorpions, missed the virtuosity of Rush, Genesis, Journey etc. and always seemed to have too many fillers in amongst all the gems. Well, i have got older and redicovered them with this live stuff and Can't slow down. Kelly Hanson has given them a shot in the arm and they rock nice and hard now. The newer songs stand up really well against the classics and great to hear Starrider being performed and enjoyed. They all look like they are having a great time and so are we. Love it!

If you like Foreigner's music this DVD is a must buy item. It's a real bargain for the price too!

This is how these great songs should sound in a live situation, i.e like the original album tracks, but with a 'live' feel to it.

Now the band have a lead singer who can really sing the songs exactly like the original tracks on the albums. There is a great selection of the bands most well known songs, at their very best. The quality of every aspect of the performance is superb.

After first purchasing the DVD 'All Access tonight' their 25th Anniversary World Tour, I was really disappointed because of the poor lead vocals. Although the musicianship was really good on this DVD, Lou's lead vocals just didn't sound like they did on the albums and it really spoilt the whole thing for me. At this point, I really thought that this was probably the end of the road for Foreigner.

What a difference Kelly Hansen has made. I am now delighted to finally have a great DVD of one of my favourite bands, which I actually want to watch.

I bought this DVD to allow me to check out the differences of a past singing rock star, Lou gramm - RIP, and the present bands singer Kelly Hanson. Kelly sings with an ever so slightly higher pitch to his voice, and that is just as great as the sound of his predecessor. This DVD has all of the terrific tracks that Foreigner are known for, you won't be disappointed with the performance of a band that has stood the test of time. Added to that, a sourced supply by everybody's favourite provider Zoverstocks.

Great show and band. Obviously not the original guys apart from Mick Jones, but the songs are so good (as are the performances) that you don't mind. Kelly Hansen is a great singer (just as well bearing in mind who he replaced!) and I recommend this DVD to Foreigner fans - Get past Lou Gramm's absence and you won't be disappointed!

I have just bought this (on DVD) after seeing Foreigner live at the LG Arena with Journey and Styx recently. During that show, Foreigner were the REAL stars! Kelly Hansen has to be THE best rock singer out there at the moment. His performance that night - and on this DVD - is little short of SENSATIONAL! The performance from the whole band on this DVD is so tight - Mick Jones guitar playing is wonderfully melodic during the big ballads but he knows how to rock! Tom Gimbel plays guitar, flute and sax brilliantly throughout - what a wonderful multi-instrumentalist and an asset to the band. Some purists might say that Lou Gramm will always be THE voice of Foreigner - what I`d say to them is, open your mind AND your ears! Kelly Hansen is rock`s finest vocalist and has a great rapport with his audience. Lou who?! MIND BLOWING!!!!!!!

Got to say this blue-ray dvd is outstanding. Quite often when a band changes it's lead singer it's never the same but in all honesty Kelly Hansen just fits right in there. He manages to reach and belt out those difficult notes that Lou gramm sang so easily. Mick Jones, the founder of foreigner, has got himself a fantastic line up of musicians here, so much so this dvd has prompted me to buy Foreigners latest album, They play some of their new tracks on this dvd. I got to see Foreigner live with Hansen fronting the band playing all the usuall Foreigner classics which he does superbly on this dvd. To some it up OUTSTANDING !
