Journey and Steve Miller Band are joined by the Tower of Power in a three-bill summer concert across North America. The three bands are fitting matches. All three came out of San Francisco and both Journey and Steve Miller Band were among the most successful bands of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Although the two bands hail from the same town and shared success during the same period, they have never shared a stage.
Tower of Power will open the show with Steve Miller taking the stage following their set. Journey will close out the show. Fans can expect to hear all of the classic hits from both bands including “Don’t Stop Believin’”, which has reemerged as a hit with a new and much younger audience. Journey’s set list will focus on hits from the 80s, but the band will play some new songs as well, including “She’s a Mystery” from their 2011 album. Steve Miller will undoubtedly play “Driving Me Crazy,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Abracadabra,” and “The Joker.”
Journey first formed in 1973 with former members of the bands Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch. The band is well known for their 1978 – 1987 hits, including “Open Arms,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” and “Faithfully.” The band’s frontrunner, Steve Perry, supplied the vocals for the band’s greatest hits, but would eventually leave Journey in the 1980s after becoming burned out from touring and recording. Since his departure, the band has continued to flourish and is regarded one of the best-selling artists of all time. To date, the band has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide.
Steve Miller Band emerged in the late 1960s and saw their greatest commercial success during the same time as Journey. Their greatest hits include “The Joker,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Free,” and “All Right Now.”
