With several gold records and a double platinum album, it's no surprise why this incredible rock band is still touring and bringing their music to fans all over. With songs like 'Third Time Lucky (The First Time I Was a Fool),' 'Drivin' Wheel,' and 'I Just Want to Make Love To You,' you and the audience will feel like it's 1975 again without a care in the world. If you were lucky enough to see Foghat live in concert during the height of their popularity, you will have the unique experience of seeing how much this band has matured and evolved with their music, and new fans will finally be able to hear the music in a live format. Foghat's live performances will remind you of what blues and rock are all about, and you don't want to miss their amazing show, Friday, February 6 at 7:30 pm.
