Courtesy of The Rock PackThis Friday, December 16, The Rock Pack, a musical collective featuring current and former singers from several well-known bands, will be playing at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix. Among the artists appearing at the show will be original Foreigner frontman Lou Gramm, Cheap Trick‘s Robin Zander, founding Santana singer/keyboardist Gregg Rolie, The Tubes‘ Fee Waybill and ex-Journey vocalist Steve Augeri.
During the concert each singer will hit the stage separately to perform some their groups’ biggest hits with the evening’s house band, which was put together by one-time Asia frontman John Payne.
Gramm tells ABC Radio, “It’s gonna be great because I like a lot of the other bands’ materials too that the singers are on for.” He also reports that the show will end with a big finale during which all of the vocalists will team up for a song or two.
“I can’t wait to hear a blend of voices on some encore songs,” Lou declares. “You know, maybe [we’ll] do an old Beatles song or something.”
Gramm says he especially happy to get to share a stage with Zander, noting that he’s been friendly with the singer since Cheap Trick opened for Foreigner during one of his old group’s early tours.
Gramm also has signed on for another Rock Pack show that’s scheduled for January 27, 2017, at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan. The other singers taking part in this concert include Waybill, Augeri, Payne and founding Toto frontman Bobby Kimball.
Lou tells ABC Radio that the Phoenix and San Juan gigs are “test drives” for what he hopes will be a possible series of Rock Pack concerts.
“If the ticket sales and the response is good, I think it’ll be an ongoing thing,” says Gramm.
