VIDEO: Journey stream Who’s Crying Now from Live In Japan 2017 package

Journey are streaming performance video of their 1981 hit, “Who’s Crying Now”, as the latest preview to the forthcoming package, "Live In Japan 2017: Escape + Frontiers."

The lead single from “Escape” was a US Top 5 hit while the project went on to sell more than 9 million copies in the country and 12 million worldwide.

Due March 29, the live release captures the band’s complete performances of a pair of their classic 1980s albums from a February 7, 2017 concert event at the famed Budokan in Tokyo.

Kicking off the two-hour set with "Don't Stop Believin'", Journey delivered a mix of hits and deep tracks like "Escape"'s "Lay It Down" and "Frontiers"' "Back Talk", which haven't been played live since the albums' original touring cycles.

These records – which produced eight US Top 40 singles combined – have sold nearly 20 million copies worldwide, with “Escape” hitting the Top 30 and “Frontiers” going Top 5 in Japan and both earning top 3 status in the US.

"Live In Japan 2017: Escape + Frontiers" will be available in multiple formats, including DVD+2CD and Blu-ray+2CD.

Journey founder and guitarist Neal Schon launched his “Journey Through Time” tour at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA on February 23; the rocker will next perform a March 1 date at The Van Buren in Phoenix, AZ and a March 2 show at The Orpheum in Los Angeles, CA.
