Journey 720X437 Liverpool

Journey with special guests Cheap Trick

AEG PRESENTS and AIKEN PROMOTIONS are delighted to announce that legendary American rock band JOURNEY will be bringing their 50th Anniversary Freedom Tour to Liverpool on the 11th November 2024! 

JOURNEY originally formed in San Francisco in 1973 and soon became one of the biggest bands in America, with nineteen Top 40 Billboard hits in the US, and huge global hits such as ‘Don’t Stop Believin’, ‘Open Arms’, ‘Faithfully’, ‘Any Way You Want It’ and ‘Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)’, taking them to over 100 million album sales worldwide. The band – featuring lead guitarist Neal Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain and vocalist Arnel Pineda – released their sixteenth and most recent studio album, entitled Freedom, in 2022 and embarked on their 50th Anniversary tour in 2023.

Currently on a headline arena tour of the USA, JOURNEY will be spending the summer on a co-headline stadium tour of America with Def Leppard, before bringing their much-anticipated 50th Anniversary tour to the UK & Ireland this autumn. Main support on all dates comes from the acclaimed Illinois power-pop quartet CHEAP TRICK, who are also celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year.

Neal Schon comments, "It's been too long since we've seen you all! We are all very excited to be coming back to the UK and playing with our good friends Cheap Trick, who I’ve known and played with since the 70s. It’s going to be a great party for all!"

CHEAP TRICK are loved around the world for their instantly identifiable and hugely influential union of wit, melody, powerhouse pop hooks and razor-sharp riffs. With global hits such as ‘Surrender’, ‘The Flame’, ‘Dream Police’ and ‘I Want You To Want Me’, they released their most recent studio album In Another World in 2021 to global acclaim.

Under 14's must be accompanied by an adult.
