Veteran band will play a rare New Year's eve gig as part of its run at The Colosseum.
For the first time ever this fall, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Journey will take the stage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, a venue equal to the band's legendary status. With nine dates announced for October and now the addition of Dec. 27, 28, 30 and 31, fans will have the opportunity to spend New Year’s Eve weekend with the group that's been touching the world with its infectious music for five decades.
"We don’t usually play a New Year’s Eve show” says keyboardist Jonathan Cain in an exclusive interview with Billboard. “How quick the [other] shows sold sealed the idea and this year it made sense for all of us.” Legacy acts like Journey are prime for Las Vegas residencies because of their ability to sell tickets to a wide range of consumers who will travel to see icons in an intimate space like The Colosseum.
Founding members Neal Schon (lead guitarist) and Ross Valory (bassist) join longtime members Jonathan Cain (keyboardist), Steve Smith (drummer) and Arnel Pineda (lead singer) in performing some of the best-known and most successful popular American music hits, including “Lights,” “Faithfully,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Wheel In The Sky,” “Separate Ways,” “Who's Crying Now,” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
