Journey, one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, are responsible for creating some of the best-known songs in modern music. Over the years they have gained multiple accolades including 19 Top 40 singles, 25 Gold and Platinum albums and the single Don't Stop Believin' holding the #1 digital catalogue song in history. The line-up features Neal Schon (guitars, backing vocals), Jonathan Cain (keyboards, backing vocals), Ross Valory (bass, backing vocals), Deen Castronovo (drums, percussion, backing vocals) and Arnel Pineda (lead vocals).
Co-headlining the tour are the legendary Whitesnake who carry a reputation as one of the world's leading rock 'n' roll bands. Founded and formed by Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, the band have earned multi-platinum albums and multiple top 10 hits worldwide, including 2 number 1 singles with Here I Go Again and Is This Love, and more recently with Still Of The Night. The line-up features David Coverdale (vocals), Doug Aldrich (guitar), Reb Beach (guitar), Michael Devin (bass), and Tommy Aldridge (drums, percussion).
Very special guests are Thunder. In 2009 the band went their separate ways, only to return in 2011 for a triumphant live performance at London's High Voltage festival, followed by two sell-out Christmas shows. Singer Danny Bowes says: "We'd already discussed possibly doing some shows during 2013, so this is perfect, and it's a great bill. It'll be a brilliant night out".
Journey and Whitesnake, with special guests Thunder, will appear onstage together for the first time ever taking in eight dates across the UK throughout May 2013. Tickets are available online from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
