Don't Stop Believin' went stratospheric after the cast of TV phenomenon Glee covered the song in the first series. ITV's The X-Factor got in on the action, with 2009 winner Joe McElderry covering the song, propelling the track into the Top 10 with a peak position of No. 6 in the New Year. Journey guitarist Neal Schon personally collected the award. Journey announced today that they will be going out on the road with Foreigner next year for a Classic Rock Presents AOR-sponsored UK tour; for more information please go to www.livenation.co.uk.
