Journey, one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, are responsible for creating some of the best-known songs in modern music. Over the years Journey have gained multiple accolades – including 19 Top 40 singles, 25 Gold and Platinum albums and single ‘Don’t Stop Believin” holding the #1 digital catalogue song in history. In 2011 Journey attracted approximately 1 million fans to their 2011 Eclipse World Tour, which included a sold-out UK leg and ranked in the Top 15 Tours of the year. In the same year Journey were awarded the prestigious ‘Legend Of Live Award’ at the Billboard Touring Awards in honour of the band’s significant and lasting contributions to live music, the touring business, and in acknowledgement of their commitment to the fans and the art of performing live.
Journey will be joining this new tour with their line-up of members including Neal Schon (guitars, backing vocals), Jonathan Cain (keyboards, backing vocals), Ross Valory (bass, backing vocals), Deen Castronovo (drums, percussion, backing vocals) and Arnel Pineda (lead vocals).
Journey‘s Neal Schon said of the tour: “Looking forward to getting back to the UK and playing our best for you all. You guys are the very best, cheers and see you soon. We will be rocking!”
Co-headlining the 2013 tour are the legendary Whitesnake, who carry a rightful & righteous reputation as one of the world’s leading rock’n'roll bands. Founded and formed by Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, Whitesnake have earned multi-platinum albums and multiple top 10 hits worldwide, including 2 number 1 singles with ‘Here I Go Again’ and ‘Is This Love’ as well as the unforgettable hammer of ‘Still Of The Night’. Bombast, bravado, talent and passion have helped establish Whitesnake as the perennial platinum favourite they have become and they’re back with a vengeance in 2013, with plans to release a live DVD ahead of the tour as well as a double album. ‘Unfinished business…’ as Coverdale says slyly: “We all wanted the last tour to continue as we got closer to the end. After a year in the studio we’re ready to rock on stage again…We’re coming back for more.”
Harnessing David Coverdale’s blues and soul roots & fuelled by incendiary guitarists Doug Aldrich & Reb Beach you have all the elements needed to shape Whitesnake’s hard rock identity.
