APRIL 29 – MAY 16
Tickets on sale Friday, Jan. 16 at 10 a.m.
Legendary rock band Journey makes its way to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for a nine-show residency, Journey Las Vegas, from Wednesday, April 29 to Saturday, May 16.
Journey is blazing hotter than ever with the lineup of founder Neal Schon (lead guitar and backing vocals), Jonathan Cain (keyboards and backing vocals), co-founder Ross Valory (bass and backing vocals), Deen Castronovo (drums, percussion and backing vocals) and Arnel Pineda (lead vocals). 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 now headlining its first-ever residency at The Joint.
“We are looking forward to bringing it to you in Las Vegas during our residency at The Joint,” said Schon. “See you soon!”
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.
“The Joint is known worldwide for bringing the biggest artists into an intimate musical playground,” said Chas Smith, vice president of entertainment for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “We’re excited to add Journey to our list of legendary resident acts that have performed at this venue.”
“Journey is an iconic band and their songs resonate with music enthusiasts across the board,” remarked Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking for AEG Live Las Vegas. “Fans will hear all of Journey’s timeless hits at The Joint. We cannot wait to offer concertgoers this epic experience.”
