Take a "Slow Ride" with Foghat

Published : Wednesday, May 17, 2017 | 2:37 PM

On Thursday, May 25 beginning at 9:00 p.m. take a Slow Ride with 70s rock ‘n roll group Foghat at the Rose Theater. Hits include: Slow Ride, Fool For The City, I Just Want To Make Love To You, Drivin’Wheel, and more.
Formed in 1971 when Lonesome Dave Peverett and Roger Earl left the British blues-rock band, Savoy Brown, Foghat has earned eight Gold records, one Platinum record and one Double-Platinum record.  And they continue to release new music every few years. They have never stopped touring and recording although there have been several ups and downs and changes over the years.  They sadly lost Lonesome Dave Peverett in 2000 and Rod Price in 2005, but Roger Earl kept banging & kicking to keep Foghat’s musical legacy going.
Foghat fans are everywhere and these days their audience consists of all ages.  From the young kids who play Guitar Hero III and know all of the lyrics to ‘Slow Ride’,  to the Dazed & Confused generation of 30-40 somethings and the ‘boomers’ who bought Foghat’s first vinyl or 8 track!  Looking out at the audience and seeing all of the generations rockin’ to Foghat is very gratifying to the band. According to lead singer Charlie Huhn, “the band just wants to make sure that after every show, they are all convinced that they just got rocked, from the second we start the first song to the end of the show”.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m., music starts at 7:00 p.m. and the Foghat will perform at 9:00 p.m. Openings sets are by Ampage, and Jim Gustin and Truth Jones.
Ticket prices are $28/$38/$48/$58 plus applicable fees. All seats must arrive by 7:00 p.m.
The Rose Theater is located in the Paseo Colorado at 245 E. Green Street, Pasadena. For more information call (888) 645-5006 or visit www.roseconcerts.com.
