It was Thursday August 7th 2008 when Mike, Brian, and Tom enjoyed the invitation from Journey to review the Journey / Cheap Trick concert as the tour makes their stop in Nashville, TN.
This was one show we were looking forward to cover for two reasons.
1) We are huge fans of Cheap Trick.
2) Although we are fans of Journey’s music, we really didn’t know what to expect with their new front man, Arnel Pineda.
Arnel proved himself to be the best front man Journey has had since Steve Perry left the band. Not only did his vocals shine, but his energy proved to be exactly what Journey had been missing to make the band the excellent live act they were capable of being. Listen to our concert review of the night as we step though the setlist of Journey and Cheap Trick. If you have a chance to see this tour, don’t hesitate!
Special thanks to Live Nation, Journey’s management, Cheap Trick’s management, and all the nice fans who said hi to us. It was also nice to watch the show with Kelly Keagy (Night Ranger) and his wife Monique (super nice people).
ENJOY THE SHOW!
