The “Journey” will be commemorated in a tour in 2024 featuring Special guest Toto. The 30-city Freedom tour will kick off from Biloxi, Mississippi, on February 9, 2023. Their stoppages will be in Calgary, Alberta, Las Vegas, Nevada, Baltimore, Maryland, and other cities before they end up in Bridgeport, Connecticut on April 29.
Toto, the American rock band, recently supported Journey’s 2022 album “Freedom”. Journey released the album a decade after their last album “Eclipse”. Freedom was suggested as Journey’s 1886 album’s title which was later named “Raised on Radio” as vocalist Steve Perry was not interested in the name.
Neal Schon said that their ex-manager Herbie Herbert suggested the name “Freedom” back in 1886 as he always preferred one-word names. But Steve Perry fought with Herbert over the name and finally, the name of the album became “Raised on Radio”.
While commenting about Toto Schon said they are very happy to collaborate with their good friends Toto and invited fans to join their show and enjoy it.
Journey was established in San Fransico back in 1973, by former members of Santana, Steve Miller Band, and Frumious Bandersnatch. The band released their eponymous debut in 1975.
Alongside Neal Schon (the guitarist/vocalist), the other members of the band are Jonathan Cain (keyboardist/songwriter), Arnel Pineda (lead singer), Todd Jensen (bassist), Jason Derlatka (keyboardist) and Deen Castronovo (drummer).
Journey experienced their biggest commercial success when Steve Perry was the lead vocalist (1978-87) and released a series of hit songs like “Don’t Stop Believin'” (1981).
