MUSIC

Foreigner

Are you gonna argue with Paul McCartney? Of course not. So, when Sir Paul makes a short, expletive-enhanced video from his car advocating for Foreigner’s inclusion into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, as he did last month, you pay attention. And then you pay to see the classic rock mainstays at 8:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Wednesday at the Venetian Theatre. Tickets start at $44; ticketmaster.com.
