Press Releases
(11/16/2010) - WHAT: As a staple of classic rock music, Foreigner has seen and done just about everything: Sixteen Top Thirty hits including "I Want To Know What Love Is", "Double Vision", "Hot Blooded", "Juke Box Hero", " Cold As Ice", "Head Games" and more; along with a hit album called Foreigner "4" that spent more weeks on the Billboard chart at number one than any album by AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, U2, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Genesis, Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, and any artist in Atlantic Record's 60 year history.

But for one night the group will perform as never before, supporting a cast of Olympic, World and National Champion figure skaters as they compete for the coveted title of Cold-EEZE Best Improv-Ice Skater. In the sports and music world, often the greatest moments in history are the least expected or prepared for. "Cold-EEZE Improv-Ice" takes this idea to an exciting level putting the creativity and athletic prowess of the skating cast to the ultimate test of performance under pressure, in this nationally televised, off-the-cuff show.

The skaters will not get to hear which Foreigner hit has been selected for them before performing and additionally, the live audience and viewers will have the opportunity to vote for the skater they feel performed the most creative routine, with the results being announced on the last televised special of the NBC Skating Series.
