Formed in San Francisco in 1973, Journey is one of the most recognizable names in rock and pop music, known for hits such as “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Faithfully,” “Lights” and many others.
Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, the diamond-selling group recently announced the track listing for its upcoming studio album “Freedom,” which is scheduled to be released later this year. The band headlined the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago last summer, uniting fans across generations with its decade-spanning setlist of instantly recognizable anthems. The group also recently played its hits “Any Way You Want It” and “Don’t Stop Believin’” at We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert in New York City last August, in addition to honoring 9/11 first responders at the Tunnel to Towers concert that same month. Journey features founder Neal Schon (lead guitarist), Jonathan Cain (keyboards, backing vocals), Arnel Pineda (lead vocals) Jason Derlatka (keyboards, backing vocals) and Deen Castronovo (drums, backing vocals).
“We are excited that Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Journey will rock the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week stage,” said Greg Harris, President & CEO of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, “Along with our Canton neighbors, we look forward to welcoming football and rock ‘n’ roll fans to Northeast Ohio this summer.”
The 2022 Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls will welcome eight new members into the Pro Football Hall of Fame: TONY BOSELLI, CLIFF BRANCH, LeROY BUTLER, ART McNALLY, SAM MILLS, RICHARD SEYMOUR, DICK VERMEIL and BRYANT YOUNG.
