Lou Gramm, the iconic voice behind the band Foreigner and a music legend from Rochester, has shared plans to retire from performing after 2024. This isn’t the first time Gramm has talked about retiring; he previously said his solo show in 2018 would be his last but continued to perform occasionally after that.


Despite stepping back before, Gramm is still active in the music scene. He’s scheduled to join the Parti Gras tour this summer, showing fans he’s not quite done yet. Plus, he’s in the running to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2024, with the final decision expected in April.

Lou Gramm’s announcement marks the end of an era for rock music, as he plans to leave the stage for good at the end of next year. His contributions to music, both as a solo artist and with Foreigner, have left a lasting impact on fans and the industry alike.
