Journey to Tour With Pat Benatar, Loverboy
Tickets are already on sale for many of the dates Journey has scheduled to play with Pat Benatar and Loverboy this summer. According to the band's official website, they'll play 14 dates across the country, beginning on July 21 in San Bernardino, Calif.
A press release from Benatar lists other dates, while Loverboy's website only lists a handful of the shows listed below. It's not clear if dates listed on Benatar's press release are solo shows, or if Journey and Loverboy's websites just haven't been updated yet.
"Performing for our fans is the best part of what we do and we're excited this year to have some surprises and introduce some new material to everyone,” Benatar and husband / musical partner Neil Giraldo said in the press release. That new material may be part of a project that tentatively scheduled to be released in 2013.
Journey's Neal Schon and Steve Smith will appear this month at "A Concert for Ronnie Montrose -- A Celebration of His Life in Music" in San Francisco. They'll be part of the Ronnie Montrose All-Star band alongside Kiss' Eric Singer and Styx's Ricky Phillips.
