Neal Schon announces opening dates of Journey Through Time tour

Neal Schon has announced the opening pair of dates for his “Journey Through Time” tour.

The series will see the Journey founder and guitarist celebrate the band’s legendary catalog and rich history, including tunes from the San Francisco outfit’s first three albums: 1975’s “Journey”, 1976’s “Look Into The Future”, and 1977’s “Next.”

Schon and his Journey and Santana bandmate Gregg Rolie will perform with a lineup that includes former Journey member Deen Castronovo on vocals and drums, Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake) on bass and vocals, multi-instrumentalist Marti Frederiksen and Chris Collins on guitar and keys.

“We’re really going to play anything that’s in our repertoire – anything that Journey has recorded,” says Schon. “I plan on mixing it up a lot and not playing the same set. Stuff from our first three records – we’re going to update that a little bit – and have some fun jamming!”

The band will play a warm-up show at the Jackson Rancheria Casino in Jackson, CA on February 22 before the trek’s official opening night at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA on February 23.

Tickets for both shows are now on sale, with more dates to be announced.

Schon founded Journey in 1973 and remains the lone consistent member in the group’s history, having participated in every album and tour to date; he was also a member of Santana and has performed with a variety of other acts including Bad English, Jan Hammer and HSAS.

With worldwide sales of more than 100 million records, Journey were inducted into the 2017 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame during a ceremony in New York.
