World-renowned rock band The Journey is coming to the Philippines for their much-awaited concert on March 14 at the SM Mall of Asia concert grounds.
This comes at the heels of the band's well-publicized performance at the 2009 Super Bowl 43rd pre-game in Tampa, Florida last February 1, 2009. The American band Journey is composed of Neal Schon (guitars), Jonathan Cain (keyboards), Ross Valory (bass) and Dean Castronovo (drums), and of course, their Filipino vocalist Arnel Pineda. The former vocalist of local cover band Zoo was recently given his own segment on ABS-CBN's variety show ASAP '09 titled Rock Express.
Arnel was discovered by Neal through the video sharing site YouTube, paving the way for the Filipino singer to replace Journey's former vocalist Steve Perry.
Journey will definitely rock the local concert scene with their first performance in the Philippines after their successful tours in Europe and the United States. Arnel's powerful voice is featured in the band's 11th album titled Revelation, a certified-platinum album in the United States. Tracks include "Open Arms," "Only The Young," "Don't Stop Believing," and "Separate Ways."
Tickets to the March 14 concert are available at Ticketnet (Tel. No. 911-9999).
Journey will perform live in Manila, March 14
