Jukebox Hero The Musical will be premiering in Toronto next month, and in honor of the show, Foreigner is launching a search for an actual “Jukebox Hero.”

The verbiage on the search’s official site reads as follows:

“How far have YOU gone to prove your dedication to your favorite band? Have you met your musical hero? Been inspired by a musical experience? Share your story and you could join FOREIGNER at the World Premiere of Jukebox Hero: The Musical!”

Fans interested in entering can make a video and submit it in one of three ways:  On Facebook and tagging @foreigner, on Instagram and tagging @foreignerlive or uploading the video to YouTube and submitting the link through JukeboxHeroMusical.com.

In addition to fan submissions, Mick Jones is also in search of the actual fan from Cincinnati that helped inspired the classic Foreigner track, so if you know their whereabouts or if that fan is you, consider entering the contest, too.

Are you the Jukebox Hero?

The search is on for the original "Juke Box Hero", the die-hard fan who inspired FOREIGNER's eponymous hit song. FOREIGNER founder, songwriter and lead guitarist Mick Jones wrote the song following a memorable encounter with a fan in Cincinnati, and that this fan is rumoured to have gone on to have his own storied music career.
