The long rumored Journey Hard Rock residency was confirmed today. Color me uninspired this announcement. Initial rumors were that this Journey residency was to include the original lineup featuring lead singer Steve Perry. That doesn’t seem to be the case.
Shows at The Joint will be on The Joint on April 29 and then May 1, 2, 6, 8, 9, 13, 15 and 16.
Even though current singer, Arnel Pineda, is fun to watch as the singer this is nothing more than a Journey cover band in my eyes. They could be playing at the Fremont Street Experience on a random Tuesday night. Maybe Steve Perry is happy singing along with the 7th inning stretch song a San Francisco Giants games.
Tickets for Journey at the Hard Rock at over $60 after fees and taxes and go on sale January 16th. If you’d rather save the money you can see an hour of Journey’s concert in Manilla below (or buy DVD on Amazon for less than $30). It’s pretty awesome if you like Journey.
