Foreigner has announced a slew of new concert dates, more than doubling their number of scheduled performances in 2021.

Like many acts, the band had been tentative about a return to the stage in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Foreigner initially played several socially distanced shows, then announced a U.S. summer tour in April. Now, the group has tacked on a bevy of performances stretching into the fall, before Foreigner heads overseas for even more shows in 2022.

"We are full-on back on the road," frontman Kelly Hansen proclaimed to Billboard. "There's been so many conversations over the last year with promoters and with our agents and with management, trying to figure out what's the safe thing to do, when can we do this, how can we do that? We're finally able to say we're getting out there, we're getting on the road. That's a great thing." The rocker added that the group’s extended dates will take them "to all kinds of great places we don't always get to go to."

Even as his band embraces its return to touring, Hansen admitted they will remain cautious. "We want to make sure we do the most safe and protective things we can to make sure all these shows go off and happen the way they should," he explained, adding that Foreigner will use a “backstage bubble” to keep the band and crew members safe. Traditional fan meet-and-greets will also be changed.

"Depending on the venue, they're either not happening, or modified," he noted. "We can't make it the handshaking, one-on-one meet and greet like we've been doing -- at least not for now. There is an experience still to be had, we just have to modify. We're putting a lot of thought into it to make sure it's a presentation we're proud of."

Foreigner’s tour kicks off June 24 in Ottumwa, Iowa before winding its way all over the country. A handful of shows in the fall - Sept. 29 in Saratoga, Calif., Oct. 1 in Los Angeles, Oct. 2 in Santa Barbara, Calif., Oct. 11 in Detroit, Oct. 12 in Youngstown, Ohio and Oct. 13 in Grand Rapids, Mich. - will feature the band performing with a full orchestra.
