Journey is continuing their 50th anniversary celebration and has unveiled their 2023 tour dates. The spring leg of the tour kicks off on February 4 in Allentown, Pennsylvania, with stops in Washington, DC, Fresno, CA and more before wrapping in Palm Springs on April 25. Toto will be joining Journey for the newly announced tour dates.
“We are all thankful and overwhelmed by the success of our Journey Freedom Tour 202 this year and have added a new run of dates for 2023,” Journey founder Neal Schon said in a statement. “We are looking forward to hitting the road again with our very good friends Toto! Come join us for a special evening full of fun and rockin’ good memories.”
Along with the newly-announced tour dates, several shows that previously needed to be rescheduled, including Washington, DC, Hartford, CO, Toronto and Quebec, have also been announced.
“Excited to perform for our fans as we tour next year with Toto,” Jonathan Cain said in a statement. “The combined hits of both bands represent a couple of decades of excellence that have become a soundtrack for people’s lives. The music of Journey along with the music of Toto is an example of ‘certain music’ during ‘uncertain times.’”
Journey has been celebrating their 50th anniversary all year, the band releasing their newest album, Freedom, earlier this year. Highlights from their ongoing run include selling out Canandaigua, New York’s Constellation Brands on Aug. 8, grossing $753,988, according to reports submitted to Pollstar’s Boxoffice. The band also raked in $906,895 for their two shows at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas on July 22 and 23 and $847,096 at the same venue on July 15 and 16.
“On behalf of myself and the band, we are very honored and excited to do this tour with our old and dear friends Journey,” Toto’s Steve Lukather said in a statement. “Gonna be a great night of music, and as all the guys are lifelong friends… a blast off stage as well.”
