Reportedly, it’s the highest grosser in Hollywood Bowl’s history, and the first time that Pineda and the group performed with a full orchestra. The venue has been featuring famous performers for almost 100 years now.

It can be recalled that Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” has also set history as the “Most Downloaded Song of the 20th Century”, and this was officially recognized by the music industry.

After more than 3 decades, Journey is still a household name. Thanks to the incredible voice of Filipino lead singer, Arnel Pineda, who has extended Journey’s music when he joined the famous band in 2007.

Pineda has performed as the lead singer of the iconic band for 8 years now, and new fans, the younger people, learned to appreciate their music, as well.

Arnel Pineda together with his band mates, Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory and Deen Castronovo, (stand in- Omar Hakim), are all superb performers. With their love for music, Journey is sure to stay for more generations to come.

Most people are surely familiar with Journey’s classic songs; “Separate Ways”, “Don’t Stop Believin”, and “Anyway You Want It”. If you’re not, then you may want to listen, so you will know why these songs are rock classics.
