    I'm confused! Are you saying that Journey with Arnel Pineda will be performing...or another band completely?

    Exclamation Re: Journey on Maui!

    Journey to play 3 concerts in Hawaii
    The band's popularity is probably at its highest since it first became big in the 1970s and 1980s when former band members Santana and Steve Perry were in the group. The renewed interest of late has been sparked by Filipino sensation Arnel Pineda, the group's the lead singer who debuted in Februrary 2008.The band discovered Pineda while watching a YouTube video of Pineda doing Journey covers.The band's first album with Pineda, Revelation, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard charts this past June and sold nearly 200,000 copies in the first two weeks.Journey will perform March 24 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center Amphitheater, March 26 at the Blaisdell Arena and March 28 at the Waikoloa Bowl on the Big Island.

    Default $55, the going rate now?...

    Steve Miller's cheapest seats are $55 as well.
    Yes, I'm living in the past, and am a skinflint..., but I'm not dying enuf to shell out good $ for this level of acts. Good, but not great.
    The Miller show gives more band for the buck with JCYoung opening and ol' Joe Cocker in tow.
    Bet both sell out, however.

    Who's opening for Journey?

    What pissed me off is the redid all of Perry's classics with Arnel. It wasn't like Hagar stepping in for Roth when VanHalen got an all new sound, Journey went looking for a Perry sound a like . I'm just an old school fan I guess.

    They had a heavy burden, to try and carry on without Perry, and finding someone who could handle his duties was tried and failed until Neil stumbled upon this guy. Otherwise they would have to start anew and go in a different direction without benefit of their old catalog.
    They seem to wish to purge themselves of the Perry debacle and use this stunning opportunity and new momentum towards another decade of success. Perry has made his choices and the band isn't thinking about him any more.
    I kinda would have preferred the new direction aspect, as I'm tired of the Perry years. Maybe this revitalization will provide something for everybody.

    There's nuthin' wrong with being a Journey purist and you're obvious much more well versed in this music than I. I'm not a purist as I like(d) Journey with Perry and Pineda. But that doesn't guarantee that I'd like that band with another singer. I'm a Pineda fan!

    I know what I like. I remember Journey's First 3 albums BEFORE Perry. They were pure and sweet with then keyboardist Gregg Rolie doing the vocals. When they add Steve to the band, it was a gradual transition to the new Journey. Gregg slowly faded back to let Steve take the lead. IMO, the last great album Journey made was Captured It was the last time the sound that made me a fan was heard.

    I originally saw Journey during their first national tour, in support of their first LP, opening for Iron Butterfly at the Long Beach Arena in LA.
    Iron Butterfly were better...

    They already had people selling tickets on eBay, Craigslist and Ticketmaster marketplace soon after they bought their tickets. Some are asking ridiculous prices.

    Tickets sold out on Oahu in less than 2 hours. Amazing the staying power fan-base of the locals, I think they did 5 shows at the NBC in 1983 during the Frontiers tour, they come back earlier this decade with a new lead singer, Steve Augeri (sp), who is no longer with the band, they sell out two or three shows then. They come back a few years later and I think sell out the arena, now with yet another lead singer they sell out. The local fans love the group, heck I'm not surprised if anyone sang for the group as long as its JOURNEY the fans will come out in droves.

    Forget about Steve Perry. It ain't Journey without Randy Jackson!

    Without Randy, Journey sounds a bit pitchy, Dog.

    Looks like a second Journey has been added for Blaisdell.

    I would think for logistics reasons they needed a day between each island's performances to ship and setup their equipment.

    Well, I tried again today at 9am..I thought about standing in line earlier this morning, but being lazy and it being cold and windy...i decided to take my chance on ticketmaster.com...

    well...come 9am and I'm busy inputting the info into the ticketmaster.com website (as before 9am, the screen access was not there) ... and---out pops Section AA! What a rush...now it tells me that I have a few minutes to decide if I want it...so I type like a maniac...so I have 6 tickets in the AA section for Wednesday's show!!!! But yup.. you gotta count the extras they charge, like their $9.20 'convenience charge' per ticket.

    You know...it kind of made me feel 'guilty' about those people standing in line about a few hundred yards away before they can finally make it to the window...

    But anyway, I'm happy...
