Journey Announce 38 date 50th Anniversary Tour Featuring Toto for 2023

Journey has announced a 2023 50th-anniversary tour featuring Toto.

The Freedom Tour will kick off on Feb. 4 in Allentown, Pa., and continue through April 25 in Palm Springs, Calif. Tickets for all dates will be available beginning Oct. 21. You can see a complete list of dates below.

“Excited to perform for our fans as we tour next year with Toto,” Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain said in a press release. “The combined hits of both bands represent a couple of decades of excellence that have become a soundtrack for people’s lives. The music of Journey along with the music of Toto is an example of ‘certain music’ during ‘uncertain times.'”

“On behalf of myself and the band, we are very honored and excited to do this tour with our old and dear friends Journey,” Toto’s Steve Lukather said. “Gonna be a great night of music, and as all the guys are lifelong friends … a blast offstage as well.”

Last year, Journey embarked on an extensive trek, also titled the Freedom Tour, that included guest appearances from Toto and Billy Idol. The Journey lineup now consists of Cain and guitarist Neal Schon, plus singer Arnel Pineda, keyboardist and singer Jason Derlatka, drummer Deen Castronovo and bassist Todd Jenson.

Journey will perform hits including “Lovin,’ Touchin,’ Squeezin'” · “Stone In Love” · “Lights” · “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” · “Feeling That Way”, and Don’t Stop Believin’, MarkMeets have been exclusively told by representatives.

Guitarist Neal Schon says, “We are all thankful and overwhelmed by the success of our Journey ‘Freedom Tour 2022′ this year and have added a new run of dates for 2023. We are looking forward to hitting the road again with our very good friends Toto! Come join us for a special evening full of fun and rockin’ good memories. See you soon, friends.”

Earlier this month Journey surprised fans at the second of their two arena shows in Honolulu by inviting local resident Kirk Hammett onstage to jam with them on a cover of Metallica classic Enter Sandman.

The band were in Hawaii to play a brace of shows at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena, and took the opportunity to invite fellow San Franciscan Hammett to play with them on October 6. Metallica’s guitarist also sat in on the band’s Infinity-era single Wheel In The Sky on the night
