Journey And Foreigner At Comcast Theatre Thursday
by Brian Lee - Hartford Courant
August 23, 2011

This year marks the 30th anniversary of "Don't Stop Believin'," a song that first helped solidify Journey as a household name and more recently spurred renewed interest in the band thanks to high-profile placement on "The Sopranos" and "Glee."

Singer Steve Perry has been absent from the group's lineup for nearly 15 years, but Journey has soldiered on, playing to huge crowds worldwide and continuing to expand a discography that's spawned 19 Top 40 singles and a Diamond-certified Greatest Hits collection. This spring the band released "Eclipse," its second album featuring Filipino singer Arnel Pineda, a Perry sound-alike discovered by guitarist Neal Schon on YouTube.

Expect to hear new tracks from that effort alongside classic rock staples like "Any Way You Want It," "Faithfully" and "Separate Ways" when Journey plays the Comcast Theatre (61 Savitt Way in Hartford) on Thursday, August 25. Fellow '80s hit-makers Foreigner and Night Ranger open the 8 p.m. show. Tickets are $32 to $162 for reserved pavilion seats and $32 for the lawn (including fees). Info: 860-548-7370 or livenation.com.
