Journey at The Colosseum
The enduring appeal of the band born in 1973 San Francisco is built upon a foundation of beloved hits: “Lights,” “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart),” “Faithfully,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Open Arms,” “Wheel in the Sky” and of course, “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
It was that last song’s infamous appearance soundtracking the final scene of HBO’s The Sopranos that sparked the current touring era of Journey, inspiring longtime members Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain to search for a legitimate replacement for Steve Perry—Arnel Pineda—to get back on the road and capitalize on the surging popularity of “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
In Vegas, Journey has played two previous series of shows, at the Hard Rock Hotel in 2015 and 2017, and more recently visited for big tour stops at T-Mobile Arena and Mandalay Bay Events Center. The band’s residency at the recently renovated Colosseum includes 13 dates, this month and in December, including a New Year’s Eve gig. October 9-December 31, 8 p.m., $65-$270. –Brock Radke
