Robert Bourke Warren writes about Journey on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website:
In the seventies, and especially the eighties, rock music became an international force, with album sales resulting in packed arenas and stadiums.
Thanks to technology and a shrinking globe, bands suddenly reached untold millions; a hit song, beamed via satellite from culture to culture, could now touch hearts globally. Few groups embraced such unprecedented reach with as much enthusiasm and skill as Bay Area-based Journey.
The Californians not only rode the tsunami wave with panache, they created a template for bands aspiring to this level of engagement with fans. Most impressive, they are still at it, four decades on.
Journey's current 2022 Freedom Tour includes dates in Columbus, OH, Nashville, Charlotte and Atlanta, with more dates being announced.
