Journey and Steve Miller Band will kick off a 2014 summer tour on May 15 at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, California with special guest Tower of Power. The tour, produced by Live Nation, will bring two of the iconic groups that helped define the “San Francisco Sound” -Journey and Steve Miller Band – to more than 30 cities across North America including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, Seattle, and Detroit.
“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. “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,” said Steve Miller. “This is going to be a ‘Not to be missed trifects 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!”
Diamond-certified album holder Journey has sold 80 million albums worldwide and has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums since its formation in 1973 in San Francisco. The prestigious “Legend of Live Award” was presented to Journey at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards to honor the band’s contributions to live music and the touring business, and to acknowledge their commitment to fans and the art of performing live. The band’s 2011 World Tour was one of the band’s most successful tours ever, drawing nearly a million fans and ranked in the Top 15 Tours of the year. 2011 also marked the 30th anniversary of the band’s seminal anthem, “Don’t Stop Believin’,” the biggest-selling song from the 20th century in iTunes history. In 2013, Journey toured four continents and performed to more than half a million fans.
One of rock music’s all-time greats, the Steve Miller Band has sold more than 30 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years. His trademark blues-rock sound has made him one of the defining artists of classic rock radio. The 2013 touring season by the Steve Miller Band follows four of the most busy, productive years in the long, illustrious career of Steve Miller. He has released two albums in the past few years, including the number one blues album, Bingo, and its successor, Let Your Hair Down – the first new Steve Miller Band album in 18 years. In 2010, Miller went back to Europe for the first time in 25 years for a hugely successful round of dates culminating in a sold-out Royal Albert Hall concert in London that opened the door for the band to tour Europe twice in the past three years. In demand around the world as well, they also launched a tour of Australia and New Zealand in Spring 2013.
