"The smell of wine and cheap perfume..."
Journey is a band that took their name to heart when they hired a Manila nightclub singer to be their front man. For Arnel Pineda, it was more than just a trip from the Philipines to the US, it was a dream come true. After posting Journey covers to YouTube, Pineda was contacted by Journey guitarist Neil Schon to audition for the band and the rest, as they say, was history. It gives new meaning to the line "A singer in a smokey room, a smell of wine and cheap perfume," especially for anyone who's ever been to Manila. Schon has had a bit of a journey himself with White House gatecrasher Michaele Salahi and we doubt that his ex-wife will be welcoming him back with open arms any time soon, but you can catch the band in rare form for yourself with Journey tickets for tour dates near you!
Journey Don't Stop Believin' Soundtracks 20th Century
Written in 1981, Journey's super hit Don't Stop Believin' is still red hot, appearing in the TV show Glee, covered on American Idol and used in various films. Counterintuitively, the song has been downloaded more than Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit, Bob Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone, and Led Zepplin's Stairway to Heaven making it the most downloaded song of the 20th century!
As kings of 70's and 80's arena rock anthems, Journey has been a staple in American mainstream since their first platinum LP. Journey, who were previously known as the Golden Gate Rhythm Section, was formed by Santana road manager Walter Herbert who reunited Neal Schon with Gregg Rolie (both of Santana) and introduced them to Steve Miller bassist Ross Valory and Frumious Bandersnatch guitarist George Tickner. With the addition of drummer Aynsley Dunbar, who previously worked with Jeff Beck, Frank Zappa, and John Mayall, Journey's initial lineup was complete.
Once the band became popular locally, San Francisco radio station KSAN held a contest to rename to band, eventually settling on Journey. True to arena rock fashion, Journey tickets went on sale year after year and they toured constantly. Their first three albums, Journey, Look into the Future and Next, successively heightened their popularity. Because of their rigorous tour schedule, the band went through a couple of lead singlers before landing on Steve Perry.
Needless to say, Journey has gone through many lineup changes and has broken up a few times throughout the years. Their best hits, "With Open Arms," "Who's Crying Now," "Any Way You Want It" and "Don't Stop Believing" still evoke energy and a sense of comradery from audiences.
The current Journey tour includes new vocalist Arnel Pineda. Arnel, born in the Phillipines, was first discovered, surprisingly, through some YouTube videos Neal Schon saw of cover songs by Journey, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles and a few other major acts. His voice is said to be a dead ringer for Steve Perry's making the Journey concert experience that much more authentic.
In over 25 years as a band, Journey tickets have always been in high demand. Since their formation in 1973, Journey has released several studio albums and over 50 charting singles. Their album, Revelation released in 2008, peaked at number 5 on US charts. Journey's music has been featured in countless movies, ads and TV shows and Journey concerts are the stuff of rock legends!
