Foreigner will help auto-racing fans get revved up for this Sunday's Indianapolis 500 when the rockers take part in two special pre-race events on Saturday.
The band will be among the celebrities who will participate in the 500 Festival Parade, which takes place on the streets of downtown Indianapolis starting at noon CT. Other stars who will appear at the event include Eddie Money, Jim Nabors and Florence Henderson. The parade, which is expected to be attended by 300,000 spectators, will air live nationally on the NBC Sports Network.
Then, that evening, Foreigner will headline the 10th annual 500 Festival Snakepit Ball, which will be held at the Indianapolis Roof Ballroom. The sold-out black-tie gala will host a variety of VIP guests, and also will feature dining and dancing.
Foreigner has long supported professional auto-racing. The band has had a close relationship with the NASCAR organization, and even recorded a special version of their hit "Hot Blooded" that was used in a 2012 promotional campaign for the Texas Motor Speedway.
