Neal Schon, founding member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted band Journey, is proud to present ‘Neal Schon’s Journey Through Time’ along with two time Rock and Roll hall of fame inductee and former Journey and Santana band-mate, Gregg Rolie. Schon and Rolie debuted Journey Through Time in February 2018 at The Independent in San Francisco to a sold out crowd, performing songs spanning Journey’s entire catalog – including the first three albums Journey, Look Into The Future, and Next.
Journey Through Time will hit the road in February 2019 for the first time, celebrating the band’s legendary catalog and rich history. Returning to their roots, the band will showcase songs from the very beginning – plus pay tribute to your favorite classic hits. Joining Schon and Rolie will be former Journey member Deen Castronovo on vocals and drums, Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake) on bass and vocals, super-producer Marti Frederiksen (multi-instrumentalist, vocals) and Chris Collins on guitar and keys.
“We’re really going to play anything that’s in our repertoire – anything that Journey has recorded,” says Schon. “I plan on mixing it up a lot and not playing the same set. Stuff from our first three records – we’re going to update that a little bit – and have some fun jamming!”
Multi Grammy-nominated Schon founded Journey in 1972 and remains the sole consistent member, having participated in every album and tour to date. Schon was also a member of Santana and has performed with a variety of other acts including Bad English, Jan Hammer and HSAS. He has released 10 solo albums including his latest, Vortex. His guitar style has been described as soulful and melodic, admired by such fellow legends as Eric Clapton and Prince; the latter reportedly asked for Schon’s blessing to release “Purple Rain” which echoed a similar sound to Journey’s “Faithfully.”
Journey’s worldwide sales have reached over 100 million records, making them one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time. Chart-topping hits such as “Don’t Stop Believin’, “Lights,” and “When You Love a Woman” are regarded as some of the defining notes of the rock & rock musical canon. With a very broad selection of great material spanning from 1973 to now Schon has promised to dig deep into it All.
