MAY 3 – May 20
Tickets on sale Friday, December 9 at 10 a.m.
After a wildly successful run in 2015, legendary rock band JOURNEY will return to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas for a second, nine-show residency, Journey Las Vegas, from Wednesday, May 3 to Saturday, May 20. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 9 at 10 a.m. For the first time in the United States, JOURNEY will perform its seventh studio album, Escape, and the band’s eighth studio album, Frontiers, in their entirety on select dates.
JOURNEY wowed fans and critics in 2015 with nine sold out shows during its first residency, Journey Las Vegas, at The Joint. Back by popular demand, the band will once again make the award-winning venue its home with new shows featuring co-founders Neal Schon (lead guitarist) and Ross Valory (bass), longtime members Jonathan Cain (keyboardist) and Arnel Pineda (lead singer), and virtuoso drummer Steve Smith who returned to JOURNEY in 2016 after nearly 17 years since touring with the band. All Wednesday evening shows (May 3, May 10 and May 17) will exclusively feature performances of Escape and Frontiers in their entirety. Hits from these albums include “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Open Arms,” “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” and “Girl Can’t Help It.”
Through persistence and raw talent, the band has reached rare heights by selling more than 15 million copies of its Greatest Hits album, earning a total of 19 Top 40 singles, receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, producing 25 Gold and Platinum albums and headlining its first- and now second-ever residencies at The Joint. This year, the band has been nominated for one of the music industry’s top honors, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2017 induction. Since its formation in 1973, JOURNEY has kept the music alive with classic-rock radio airplay and a touring schedule unlike any other. TV series such as FOX’s “Glee” and HBO’s “The Sopranos” have also made the group’s song, “Don’t Stop Believin’,” a sensation decades after its release.
“JOURNEY’S first residency, Journey Las Vegas, blew everyone away and we’re thrilled to have them back,” said Bobby Reynolds, senior vice president of entertainment at AEG Live Las Vegas. “JOURNEY is an iconic band and their songs resonate with so many people of different ages and backgrounds worldwide. Their second residency is going to be bigger than ever, giving fans what they want plus more.”
“The Joint has been fortunate enough to bring some of the world’s biggest artists into an intimate music venue,” said Chas Smith, vice president of entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “Fans will hear all of JOURNEY’S timeless hits at The Joint and we can’t wait for them to return.”
