Legendary American rock band Journey will be bringing their 50th Anniversary ‘Freedom’ Tour to the UK & Ireland later this year, playing 11 arena shows in October and November, culminating in a performance at London’s O2 Arena.

The band released their sixteenth and most recent studio album, entitled Freedom, in 2022 (check out our review here) and embarked on their 50th Anniversary tour in 2023.

Speaking about the tour, Neal Schon comments:

“It’s been too long since we’ve seen you all! We are all very excited to be coming back to the UK and playing with our good friends Cheap Trick, who I’ve known and played with since the 70s. It’s going to be a great party for all!”

Currently on a headline arena tour of the USA, Journey will be spending the summer on a co-headline stadium tour of America with Def Leppard, before bringing their much-anticipated 50th Anniversary tour to the UK & Ireland this autumn. Main support on all dates comes from the acclaimed Illinois power-pop quartet Cheap Trick, who are also celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
