Blazing hotter than ever with the line-up of founder Neal Schon (lead guitar and backing vocals), Jonathan Cain (keyboards and backing vocals), co-founder Ross Valory (bass and backing vocals), Deen Castronovo (drums, percussion and backing vocals) and Arnel Pineda (lead vocals), Journey has created some of the best-known songs in music, such as “Wheel In The Sky,” “Separate Ways,” and “Faithfully.”
The group’s seminal anthem – “Don’t Stop Believin’” – is one of the top-selling catalogue tracks in digital history, after being featured in the last scene of the electrifying series finale of HBO’s The Sopranos and then reaching another level of stratospheric success when it was covered by the cast of FOX’s wildly successful series Glee. Three decades after its original release, “Don’t Stop Believin” has reached a new class of young fans and multiple generations are welcoming this legendary band, as it continues to bring its signature sound of classic hits and new favorites around the world.
Over the years, Journey has earned multiple accolades, including 19 Top 40 singles; producing 25 Gold and Platinum albums; and receiving a Diamond certification for its Greatest Hits album, marking US sales in excess of 15 million. In 2011, they drew nearly a million fans to their Eclipse World Tour and were awarded the prestigious “Legend Of Live Award” at the Billboard Touring Awards in honour of their significant and lasting contributions to live music and the touring business, and in acknowledgement of their commitment to the fans and the art of performing live.
