Journey has a total of 11 North American dates on the books for this summer -- including a just-added show for July 24th in Windsor, Ontario. Next month then band is hitting the road for a six-week European jaunt, and return home to kick off the summer shows on July 20th in Minot, North Dakota. The tour will also take in stops in London, Ontario; Hershey, Pennsylvania; Lampe, Montana; Springfield and Highland Park, Illinois and Las Vegas, before wrapping on September 1st in Snowmass, Colorado.
2013 marks the 30th anniversary of Journey's Frontiers album. The album, which hit Number Two and featured the band's classic Top 10 single "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)," now features several bonus tracks -- including the non-album Top 10 single, "Only The Young" -- which went on to be featured on the soundtrack to 1985's Vision Quest.
Keyboardist Jonathan Cain told us that he's glad that Frontiers has been restored to its full glory in the years since its release: "It's kind neat to see Frontiers out there, also in its entirety. The album is now put back together exactly like we made it. Y'know, we don't have to worry about the time restrictions, so Frontiers (now) has 'Only The Young' on it, it has 'Ask The Lonely' (laughs) on it -- y'know, the two songs that we pulled. I didn't pull, but the band had decided to pull. So, when you listen to Frontiers now, it's the way we actually recorded it, and it's quite a great record with those two songs that were originally supposed to be in it, y'know?
