Rock and Roll in the RocketGarden
Fall Concert Series Features Lou Gramm of Foreigner and Rock and Pop Masters
KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. (November 19, 2007) - Rock and roll with the stars of the 60's, 70's, and 80's at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex as the Fall Concert Series continues. With the iconic Rocket Garden as the backdrop, the live, festival style outdoor concert at 4:00 p.m. will feature Lou Gramm of Foreigner on November 24 and Rock and Pop Masters (RPM) December 1 as part of NASA's 50th anniversary celebration.
The concert on Saturday, November 24, features one of the most distinctive and powerful voices to emerge from Rock and Top 40 radio, Lou Gramm. The lead vocalist and co-writer of the multi-platinum band Foreigner, Gramm remains one of the most recognizable performers in music today. Gramm, the vocalist on 20 Top 40 singles, exploded onto the international music scene with Foreigner on the chart topper, "Feels Like the First Time," in 1977. Other hits include "Head Games," "Cold as Ice," "Hot Blooded," "I Wanna Know What Love Is" and "Just Between You and Me." Now, nearly three decades after the debut of Foreigner and chart-topping success as a solo artist, Lou Gramm returns with a hot new band and a dynamic live show featuring 90 minutes of his own unique brand of Rock 'n Roll.
RPM: Rock & Pop Masters will wrap up the Concert Series on Saturday, December 1. RPM is a world-class band backing up several authentic, original lead singers of huge hits from the 60's, 70's and 80's.
