Foghat is an English rock band that formed in London in 1971. The band is known for its use of electric slide guitar in its music. Releasing a series of best-selling albums in the mid-‘70s, and selling out concerts across America, this hard-rocking band achieved eight gold records, one platinum and one double platinum record.
Foghat’s live performances show why the band is still around today and why they will be able to keep on rockin’ for as long as they want. This band truly is timeless. Constant touring is part of their DNA and the band just loves to play. Their live show is as intense as ever with the incredible energy and musicianship that one would expect and hope for from a seasoned band with such a long musical history.
Recorded on August 11, 2016, Live at The Belly Up opens with the one-two punch of “Fool For The City” and “Eight Days on the Road” and doesn’t let up until the last note of the raucous 10 minute, no-holds-barred set closer “Slow Ride.” The album also features three tracks from Foghat’s 2016 release Under The Influence making their live recording debut: “Under The Influence,” “Knock It Off,” and “Hot Mama.” According to lead singer Charlie Huhn, “the band just wants to make sure that after every show, fans are convinced they just got rocked, from the second we start the first song to the end of the show.” Live at The Belly Up proves that Foghat is delivering on that commitment.
