SOUTH BEND, Ind. – February 21, 2023 – The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi’s Four Winds® Casinos are pleased to announce that legendary vocalist and rock icon, Lou Gramm will perform Four Winds South Bend’s Ribbon Town Conference and Event Center on Friday, June 16 at 9 p.m. Eastern.  Ticket prices for the show start at $89, plus applicable fees, and can be purchased online at Ticketmaster beginning on Friday, February 24 at 11 a.m. Eastern.  Hotel rooms are available on the night of the concert and can be purchased with event tickets.

Best known for being the original lead singer of Foreigner, Lou Gramm is among rock music’s most successful vocalists.  Foreigner’s first eight singles made the Billboard Top 20 (4 went Top 10), making them the first band since The Beatles to achieve this milestone.  Lou Gramm was the lead vocalist on all of Foreigner’s hit songs, including “Feels Like the First Time,” “Cold as Ice,” “Long, Long Way from Home,” “Hot Blooded,” “Double Vision,” “Blue Morning, Blue Day,” “Head Games,” “Dirty White Boy,” “Urgent,” “Juke Box Hero,” “Break It Up” and “Say You Will.”  He co-wrote most of the songs for the band, which achieved two of its biggest hits with the ballads “Waiting for a Girl Like You”, which spent ten weeks at #2 on the 1981-82 American Hot 100, and “I Want to Know What Love Is,” which was a #1 hit internationally (U.S. and U.K.) in 1985.

Lou Gramm released his first solo album, Ready or Not, in January 1987 to critical acclaim and the single “Midnight Blue” reached the top five.  This was followed by the late-1987 Foreigner album Inside Information, which reached number 15 on Billboard’s album chart.  The extracted “Say You Will” was released late that year, reaching number 6 on the Hot 100 early in 1988, and “I Don’t Want to Live Without You” followed, reaching number 5 on the Hot 100 and number one on the adult contemporary chart in the spring.  A third single, “Heart Turns to Stone” reached number 56 in the summer.  Eventually a second solo effort, Long Hard Look, that was released in October 1989, included the top ten hit, “Just Between You and Me,” and “True Blue Love,” reached the Top 40.  The album also included “Hangin’ on My Hip,” which was featured in the 1990 film Navy SEALs.

Gramm also contributed a song to the soundtrack for the 1987 movie The Lost Boys, titled “Lost in the Shadows.”

In May 2013, Lou released his autobiography Juke Box Hero – My Five Decades in Rock ‘n’ Roll.  Gramm was inducted to the Songwriters Hall of Fame in June 2013.
