Journey and Steve Miller Band to join forces in 2014

, Staff

It’s not even the first day of winter but we have the first major summer concert of 2014 officially scheduled. Classic rock favorites Journey and the Steve Miller Band will join forces for a co-headlining tour that stops in Massachusetts for a night at the Xfinity Center (formerly the Comcast Center) in Mansfield on Friday, June 13. Joining them will be special guest openers Tower of Power. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $30 to $150, are now on sale through Live Nation.

The summer trek will mark the first time the San Francisco-bred bands have toured together.

“We are all so looking forward to playing again for you in 2014 with the great company of the Steve Miller Band and Tower of Power,” said the members of Journey in a press release. “It’s going to be a San Francisco musical delight from the past and present, moving full speed ahead into the future!”

“I can’t think of a better way for the Joker to celebrate his 40th and the Steve Miller Band to enjoy next summer than playing all our hits for all of our fans as we tour the entire USA with our brother San Francisco bands, Journey and the Tower Of Power,” added Miller. “This is going to be a not to be missed trifecta of the best of soul, greatest hits and arena rock by three of the greatest bands to come out of San Francisco, clearly a once in a life time event. We can’t wait to get started!”

Journey, who toured four continents and performed to more than half a million fans in 2013, have earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums since its formation in 1973. The band’s last studio release was 2011’s Eclipse, their second with current lead singer Arnel Pineda (the band’s sixth frontman).

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of their classic album The Joker, the Steve Miller Band recently released a brand new digital remastered edition through iTunes. Their last studio release was 2011’s Let Your Hair Down, which was recorded at the same time as 2010’s Bingo!.
