Last November, Double Vision, an astounding tribute band to Foreigner, was scheduled to perform at the Historic Hemet Theatre. Shortly before the date, a member of the band had urgent family issues and the concert was postponed. Later, the band broke up and canceled the rest of its tour, leaving San Jacinto Valley Foreigner fans in the lurch.
Now the band has reformed with three of its original members and is hitting the road, taking the nation by storm. Renamed 4NR, the group has an incredible sound so close to the original, you will think you are listening to a classic Foreigner vinyl record. But 4NR is all live, no background tracks – just amazing musicians and their instruments.
And now that band is headed here (finally) to the Historic Hemet Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 7. At 7 p.m. Tickets are already selling fast, but are expected to be available the week of the show. Don’t miss this opportunity to see one to the best tribute bands in the country, performing right here in our valley.
Tickets are $22 presale, $25 day of show, and are available at: www.PurplePass.com; the theatre ticket office; Downtown Deli, 113 N. Harvard St; and the Harvard Street Music Exchange, 134 S. Harvard St.
On a lighter note, tickets are also available for the Rotary Comedy Night featuring KFI radio personality Justin Worsham on Friday Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. “Parents Night Out” is a humorous look into the strange world of fatherhood. Whether you are a father or just had to put up with one, this show is smart, insightful and wickedly hilarious. Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for veterans and Rotary members. Proceeds from this show will fund local community projects through the Hemet Sunset Rotary Club.
