What decade is this again?

Foreigner, whose debut album came out in 1977, and Whitesnake, whose debut album came out in 1978, are teaming up for a joint 2018 tour of the United States.

Billed as the “Juke Box Heroes” tour, it kicks off June 15 in Maine and concludes Aug. 1 at the new Five Point Amphitheatre in Irvine. The tour’s penultimate date is July 31 at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre, where Foreigner performed this year with Cheap Trick.

All tour dates and ticket information appears below. The opening act for all dates will be Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening, a tribute band led by former Foreigner drummer Jason Bonham, who is the son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.

Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones and Whitesnake singer David Coverdale are the only original members of their respective bands still on board. Both groups have undergone numerous lineup changes over the years.

“I’m excited to join forces with my fellow U.K. countrymen, David Coverdale and Jason Bonham, for what’s sure to be a rockin’ summer tour in the States,” said Jones, in a statement released Monday morning.
