Journey Preps For ‘Eclipse’

04:31 PM Tuesday 3/8/11 |   |

The year is shaping up to be a big one for Journey with the band releasing an album of new material in May followed by a tour with Foreigner and Night Ranger launching in July.

Journey’s upcoming album, Eclipse, is scheduled to drop May 24 in the U.S. and Canada. But don’t look for it on Amazon.com, at your local Best Buy or even at Barnes & Noble. Instead, head on over to Walmart because Sam Walton’s mega-retail chain is the exclusive store for Eclipse on this side of the pond. Eclipse lands in Europe June 3.

And there will be plenty of opportunities to hear songs from the new album performed live this summer when Journey hits the touring superhighway with Foreigner and Night Ranger for the “Eclipse” tour beginning July 21 in Sandy, Utah, near SLC at Rio Tinto Stadium. Playing mostly amphitheatres, stops also include Irvine, Calif., at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre July 23, Phoenix at Desert Sky Pavilion July 24 and Maryland Heights near St. Louis at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre July 27.

The list of cities on the routing also includes Clarkston, Mich., near Detroit (July 31), Cincinnati (Aug. 3), Noblesville, Ind., near Indianapolis (Aug. 6), Wantagh, N.Y. (Aug. 17), Raleigh, N.C. (Aug. 20), New Orleans (Sept. 10), Dallas (Sept. 24) and Seattle (Oct. 21).

In case you haven’t been paying attention the last few years, Journey’s current lineup consists of original members Neal Schon on guitar and bassist Ross Valory along with Jonathan Cain on keyboards, drummer Deen Castronovo on drums and lead singer Arnel Pineda.

But it’s not like Cain, Castronovo and Pineda are exactly newcomers to Journey. Cain joined in 1980, Castronovo in 1998 and Pineda hooked up with the band in 2007.

“We’ve got a lot of hits to play and there’s plenty of time to do some new stuff too, so we’re gonna mix it up,” Schon said. “We haven’t toured with Foreigner for over 10 years, so we’re really looking forward to this run.”

Tickets go on sale beginning March 11. Check out JourneyMusic.com for more information.

    To the folks who refer to Pineda as a Steve Perry "ripoff", "imposter", etc..  Hey, give Arnel a chance.  Yes, his voice is similar in tone and timber as Perry's, however he definately has his own style.  On the surface, Pineda lends a familiar tone to the Journey classics, which is great.  However, if you really listen to the songs, especially the new work, the two vocalist sound very different.  

    I saw Journey with Pineda live in 2009.  I have to tell you, the show was great.  Pineda kept almost perfect pitch for the entire two hour show, outside in the extreme St. Louis summer heat.  He is also a great frontman, running, jumping, and looking like he was having a blast.  Very refreshing to see.

    Yes, Perry is/was the "Voice".  Those classic Journey tunes with Perry will always have a special place in my heart.  Basically the soundtrack of my childhood and teen years.  But, things change.  I certainly do not know the full story, however it is my understanding that Perry does not want to do Journey anymore.  That is fine.  I don't blame him.  If I was around 60 years old and worth $100M, I would not tour either.

    So lets as Journey fans welcome Pineda and give him the credit he deserves for being an excellent vocalist and frontman for the band we all love.  Keep up the great work Arnel.

    Arnel is a Steve Perry Impostor! Without Perry fronting the band Journey is nothing more than a journey cover band. BTW Schon didn't want to wait for Steve to have a hip replaced and recover so they found a Steve Perry impersonator instead.

    1st off steve(the recluse)perry's voice was roached as far back as 1984-listen to oh sherrie! secondly, arnel's voice is stronger than steve's! and thirdly, there's a reason why they split, and it's steve! if he was going to be with the band he wouldn't have stiffed them on the 1998 hits tour!

    If a band is going to replace their singer the least they should do is find someone with their own voice and not a knock off of the original. Journey without Perry is just an impostor! Always liked Journeys music and I find it kinda sad and distasteful what Schon did, Arnel would be awesome to front a Journey cover band...just not the real band.

    Great new songs on this cd - City of hope the lead single was performed in their first two sold out shows in Vegas and Rino. Also good are  Resonate. Chains of Love where Arnel shows off his range. All can be watched on yt.

    It isn't slagging him off but who would you really pay to see?  Pineda or Steve Perry.  Same thing when Judas Priest replaced Rob Halford with Tim "Ripper" Owens; I wouldn't pay to see Ripper but I would to see Rob.

    Everyone should stop slagging Pineda.  As far as replacement singers go, he does Steve Perry better than Steve Perry.  I think that Steve Smith was a better drummer than Castronovo, however.

    Enough with the tribute singer stuff.  Get back with Steve Perry already.

    Very excited to get the new album and hopefully get a chance to watch another concert.  After a 12hrs night shift i grabbed my luggage and board the 4hrs plane ride to Phil  just so I can watch Journey in Manila that night and board the plane at 6am the next day ...lol immigration is giving me the look....  and it's worth the trip. I'd do it again just to get a glimps of them!

    I think Arnel does a great job with Journey. I watched a concert on tv called Live In Manila, and it was awesome!!

    Without Steve Perry, this "Journey" is just a bad trip
