Journey fans can keep on believing: the classic rock band is coming to town.
The veteran group will play the MTS Centre Nov. 19 with Pat Benatar and Loverboy, according to concert-listing website Pollstar and a Loverboy press release. Ticket information was not announced.
Journey formed in 1973 and is best known for a string of singles from the late 1970s and early '80s, including Any Way You Want It, Don't Stop Believin', Open Arms and Separate Ways (Worlds Apart). The band is currently fronted by Arnel Pineda who was discovered on YouTube singing Journey songs by guitarist Neal Schon.
Don't Stop Believin' experienced a spike in popularity after being used in the finale of HBO mob series The Sopranos and covered on the television show Glee. In 2009 it became the top-selling catalog track in the history of iTunes.
The band last appeared in Manitoba in 2004 as part of the inaugural Manitoba Summerfest at the Grand Beach Entertainment Centre. The festival lasted two years.
