Journey to tour with Pat Benatar and Loverboy
Iconic rockers Journey will be bringing back the '80s this summer.
The band recently announced plans to team up with Pat Benatar and Loverboy for a road trip that begins July 21 in San Bernadino, CA, and continues through September. The tour will visit amphitheaters, arenas and state fairs across the U.S. before wrapping September 22 in Cuyahoga Falls, OH.
Journey toured extensively last summer in support of 2011's "Eclipse," the band's 14th studio album, which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 chart. It is the second album to feature Filipino vocal sensation Arnel Pineda. The first, 2008's "Revelation," debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and earned platinum certification.
Legendary guitarist and Journey original Neal Schon will perform later this month in San Francisco at a memorial concert for guitarist Ronnie Motrose who passed away recently of prostate cancer.
Pat Benatar and her husband/lead guitarist Neil Giraldo, also have a new album in the works. According to a press release, it will surface sometime in 2013. Benatar, who is known for her powerful vocal performances and hit songs including "Love is a Battlefield," "We Belong," and "Shadows of the Night," has won four Grammys and sold over 30 million records worldwide. Her last release, "Go," reached No. 9 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart.
