Steve Smith and Journey reunite!



JOURNEY and THE DOOBIE BROTHERS will launch the "SAN FRANCISCO FEST 2016" tour on Thursday, May 12, 2016, again bringing together two of the iconic groups that helped define the "San Francisco Sound." The tour, produced by Live Nation, launches at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, California - with concerts scheduled through Tuesday, August 30, 2016, and includes special guest DAVE MASON. Tickets go on sale to the general public Saturday, December 5, 2015 at 10:00 AM through 

Neal Schon (founding member and lead guitarist), original member Ross Valory (bass), and longtime members Jonathan Cain (keyboardist) and Arnel Pineda (lead singer), are welcoming virtuoso drummer Steve Smith back into JOURNEY, marking the first time he will perform with the band since 1998. Schon and Smith have always remained close friends and musical collaborators. Smith has lent his incredible talent to several of Schon's solo albums, including critically acclaimed The Calling, and, most recently, Vortex.

Schon was thrilled when Smith accepted his invitation to rejoin JOURNEY, exclaiming, "I'm so looking forward to the very exciting 2016 we have planned, starting with my 'Neal Vortex Schon' Japan tour in February and then our major summer tour with The Doobie Brothers and Dave Mason. We will see you All soon!!!!"
