Journey, with Asia

When: Thu., March 16, 7:30 p.m. 2017

Somewhere in the world right now, a group of drunk bros are performing an off-key rendition of Journey’s signature power ballad “Don’t Stop Believin’” in a karaoke bar, and the entire place is singing right along. It’s an inevitability. Despite peaking in mainstream popularity somewhere around 1985 (and despite missing its most iconic lead singer since 1998), Journey has had a remarkably long shelf life as a headlining act on the nostalgia circuit. Unlike most long-running rock acts, however, Journey’s current lineup mostly features guys who joined the band’s ranks back in the ’70s. And while Steve Perry is still MIA, frontman Arnel Pineda sounds eerily like him.
