Journey delivers in Moncton

Latest Updates/Review/Reviews by


Lyne Brun for – Moncton, NB July 30, 2015
“The opening act in Moncton featured Journey’s very own Neal Schon showcasing his instrumental album Vortex. The 45 minute show was full of blistering tracks heavy on guitar ranging from jazz licks to Latin grooves reminiscent of Santana. Not surprising considering Schon has played on and off with Santana for years. Backed up by solid players, Schon’s Vortex is a must have for those who love instrumental albums.

After a brief stage changeover, Journey came out to deliver a ‘midsummer night’s dream’ to Moncton. Featuring the ‘thrilla from Manila’ Arnel Pineda, Journey failed to disappoint. The powerhouse singer delivered much loved classics such as Separate Ways, Open Arms and Lights, a tribute to the band’s San Francisco roots which started 42 years ago. Of course, no Journey concert would be complete without the unofficial anthem Don’t Stop Believin’ which was topped off with a confetti explosion over the crowd. In a tip to their Canadian fans, Schon tore into his version of Oh Canada much to the delight of the crowd. Journey knows what their fans want and they know how to deliver.

Judas Priest with special guest Mastodon

(Halifax, NS) – British heavy metal band Judas Priest will be bringing their “Redeemer of Souls” tour to Halifax’s Scotiabank Centre on November 10th in support of their 17th studio album of the same name.

Released in the US on July 8th, 2014 via Epic Records (as a standard version and a deluxe edition with five bonus tracks), ‘Redeemer of Souls’ is Judas Priest’s latest collection of epic metal – “raising the bar is consistent for us and ‘Redeemer’ hits the ground running” – it matches up perfectly to earlier Priest classics as evidenced by the album’s leadoff single ‘March of the Damned’ (“we are forging ahead, slamming the pedal to the metal!”) – the band mean business once again.

“We feel ‘Redeemer of Souls’ reinforces our passion for what we believe in from the Judas Priest style heavy metal.” The album also marks Richie Faulkner’s studio debut with Priest and is the co-writer of the material along with Glenn Tipton and Rob Halford.

First bursting onto the scene with 1974’s ‘Rocka Rolla’ Judas Priest is responsible for some of heavy metal’s all-time great albums – 1980’s ‘British Steel’, 1982’s ‘Screaming for Vengeance’, 1990’s ‘Painkiller’ etc – and anthems ‘Breaking the Law’, ‘Living After Midnight’, ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Coming’ etc – as well as trailblazing metal’s now instantly identifiable look – leather and studs – 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the band.

Band members Rob Halford (vocals), Glenn Tipton (guitar), Richie Faulkner (guitar), Ian Hill (bass), and Scott Travis (drums).

Special guest for Judas Priest during this leg of the tour will be Mastodon,an American heavy metal band from Atlanta, Georgia.

Tickets range from $35.50-$101.25 (including tax and service fee) and go on sale this Friday, July 31 at 10 a.m. at the Ticket Atlantic box office, by phone at (902) 451-1221 (1-877-451-1221), participating Atlantic Superstores and Additional fees may apply. / /

Neal “Vortex” Schon has been added as the special guest to JOURNEY’s upcoming Canadian tour, which launches Monday, July 6 in Winnipeg MB with concerts scheduled through to August 3 in St. John’s, NL.

This tour marks the first time the American rock greats perform a Canada-only tour, including markets in which band has never previously performed such as Penticton; Prince George; and Dawson Creek, British Columbia; and Lethbridge, AB. See below for a complete list of tour dates. Tickets are on sale now – visit for complete tour and ticketing information.

Neal “Vortex” Schon features Schon on guitar, Omar Hakim on drums, Rachel Z Hakim on keyboards and Jerry Brooks on bass. NEAL “VORTEX” SCHON will perform selections from Schon’s brand new, all-instrumental 2-CD album, Vortex, released June 23 through the Mascot Label Group. The album –featuring Neal Schon on guitars and bass, drummer Steve Smith, GRAMMY-winning keyboardist Jan Hammer, and keyboardist Igor Len – utilizes rock as its foundation, and embraces elements of jazz, classical and world music in an 18-track, sonically explosive collection of original compositions. The music of Vortex came to life at Berkeley’s Fantasy Studios, Schon’s preferred spot for recording since Journey cut the 10-times-platinum number-one album Escape there in 1981.

Blazing hotter than ever with the lineup of founder Neal Schon (lead guitar and backing vocals), Jonathan Cain (keyboards and backing vocals), co-founder Ross Valory (bass and backing vocals), and lead vocalist Arnel Pineda (who was discovered by Schon), Journey has created some of the best-known songs in rock, such as “Wheel In The Sky,” “Separate Ways,” and “Faithfully.” Schon recruited Omar Hakim to play drums for Journey’s recent Hollywood Bowl Opening Night concert, the band’s July 4th performance in Provo, Utah, and the Canadian tour.

The Hollywood Bowl, one of the most iconic concert venues in the world, launched its 94th season with its 2015 Opening Night Concert featuring JOURNEY who performed with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA), on June 20. The Bowl’s opening night is traditionally a fundraiser for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s many education and community programs, which serve more than 150,000 youth, families and teachers every year, and this year it raised a record $1.6 million; the previous best was $1.4 million in 2011.

Following the Hollywood Bowl opener, and Hakim’s debut with Journey, Neal Schon stated, “I’m very happy I was able to bring Omar Hakim in to help us pull together a very elaborate and complex show at the last minute. It was a nearly impossible feat, and tall order for anyone, but with Omar’s musical integrity and talent, we pulled it off and had a blast! Glad to know I’ve still got the ears and now I’m 2 for 2: first was finding Arnel and now, recruiting Omar Hakim.”

Over the years JOURNEY has earned multiple accolades, including 19 Top 40 singles; producing 25 Gold and Platinum albums; and receiving a Diamond certification for its Greatest Hits album, marking U.S. sales in excess of 15 million. In 2011, they drew nearly a million fans to their Eclipse World Tour and was awarded the prestigious “Legend Of Live Award” at the Billboard Touring Awards in honor of their significant and lasting contributions to live music and the touring business, and in acknowledgement of their commitment to the fans and the art of performing live.

The group’s seminal anthem – “Don’t Stop Believin’” – is the top-selling digital catalog track in history, after being featured in the last scene of the electrifying series finale of HBO’s ‘The Sopranos’ and then reaching another level of stratospheric success when it was covered by the cast of FOX’s wildly successful series ‘Glee.’ Three decades after its original release, “Don’t Stop Believin’” has reached a new generation of young fans welcoming this legendary band as it continues to bring its signature sound of classic hits around the world.

The intensely creative guitar giant, Neal Schon, has always had an innate ability to make glorious music. He began playing at age five and was inspired by soul vocalists like Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight, and blues and jazz guitarists ranging from B.B. King Albert King, and Eric Clapton to Wes Montgomery. When Schon was just 15 years old, Carlos Santana invited him to join his band. Schon’s recording debut was on the classic 1971 album Santana III. He played the solo on the LP’s hit single, “Everybody’s Everything.” Recently Schon completed the album Santana IV with Carlos Santana, co-writing songs and playing guitar. Additionally, Journey, co-headlined with Santana on Carlos’ recent homecoming concerts in Mexico.
