Lovin’ Journey, Steve Miller Band 2014 Tour Announcement

journey-ticketsWith a combined 110 million albums sold, Journey and Steve Miller Band will tour together next year. The early tour date announcement gives fans a chance to plan ahead for what is “sure to be an in-demand ticket for summer 2014” according to Pollstar. The San Francisco bands start their journey across the U.S. May 15 in Chula Vista and end August 1 in Las Vegas. The groups will hit close to 40 cities including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, and Detroit during that time period with supporting act Tower of Power. The trio will be touring together for the first time ever.

“It’s going to be a San Francisco musical delight from the past and present, moving full speed ahead into the future!”

There are so many classics for fans to rock out to during the band’s sets; and while we don’t know which hits will end up on the set-list, fans hope Journey’s greatest “Don’t Stop Believin’”, “Faithfully”, “Open Arms”, and “Any Way You Want It” are on it. Journey’s current line-up, including founding members guitarist Neal Schon and bassist Ross Valory as well as longtime member keyboard player Jonathan Cain, recently toured four continents, selling more than half a million tickets in 2013. The band’s 2011 World Tour may have been their most successful tour ever; they earned the “Legend of Live Award” at the Billboard Touring Awards that year “to honor the band’s contributions to live music and the touring business and to acknowledge their commitment to fans and the art of performing live.”

Considering its SMB’s 40th anniversary of the release of The Joker, we’d imagine the title track that was certified platinum will be performed. In addition to “The Joker”, fan-favorites “Fly like an Eagle” and “Rock’n Me”, world-wide hit single “Abracadabra” and “Living in the USA” are on everyone’s wish lists for songs to be on Steve Miller Band’s set list. The band has toured Europe twice in the past three years and Australia and New Zealand in spring 2013.

Tower of Power has a loyal fan base of their own; also from the Bay Area, the Classic R&B and funk pioneers have singles “What is Hip?”, “You’re Still a Young Man”, and “So Very Hard to Go” that are still in rotation on the radio today. The band is currently on tour hitting predominately the West Coast until the beginning of March. They’ll have a two month break until the San Francisco Fest begins.
