Lou Gramm is Going to Have a Busy Retirement

Lou Gramm may be retiring from solo shows, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t going to be busy.

The former Foreigner front man, 68, still plans to do one-off appearances with Foreigner and finishing some tracks in the studio.

According to Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones, the two have unfinished business left with recordings started before Gramm left the group in 2003, and revealed to ABC New Radio that “there’s some time now…after slogging away this [past] year that we have to consider something like that…you know, bring them to fruition.”

Gramm’s reasons for taking a break from touring life is simple: he needs to spend time with his family.

“When I left Foreigner in 2003, I put together my own band and I’ve been playing with various versions of that band, on and off, I decided that I’ve been doing this for over 45 years, and we have a little one at home, and I wanted to spend time at home with [my wife] Robyn, and my baby girl’s name is Luciana…[She’s] a year and three months. She’s a little redhead and she’s feisty and sweet and so much fun to be around,’ he tells WXXI.

If you want to catch one of Gramm’s final solo shows, he will be in Collingswood, NJ, at the Scottish Rite Auditorium on Jan. 26. Tickets available HERE.

Foreigner will be at the Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre at the Count Basie Center for The Arts in Red Bank on May 7.
