Attendees of the 10th Annual Regions 500 Festival Snakepit Ball, presented by Cindy and Paul Skjodt, will be rocking to the music of British-American rock band Foreigner. With a career spanning five decades, Foreigner has sold more than 70 million albums in the US including nine Top 10 and 16 Top 30 hits. They have performed for millions of devoted fans all over the world and will now entertain guests at the May 25 gala, the eve of the 2013 Indianapolis 500®.
Foreigner has dominated the music charts with hits including “I Want to Know What Love is,” “Double Vision,” “Hot Blooded,” “Feels Like the First Time,” “Cold As Ice,” “Head Games,” “Juke Box Hero” and many more. The band was named #49 on Billboard’s Hot 100 All Time Top Artists Chart. Foreigner's thrilling mix of impeccably crafted rock, blues and pop continues to captivate generation after generation of music fans. Comprising the band’s dynamic lineup are founder-lead guitarist Mick Jones, lead vocalist Kelly Hansen, bass guitarist Jeff Pilson, multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel, keyboardist Michael Bluestein and drummer Mark Schulman.
The band was originally formed in 1976, in the heyday of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s infield known affectionately as the Snake Pit, due to the overall Mardi Gras-esque atmosphere.
