Journey & Santana Add West Coast Date

Three shows on the East Coast compared to only one in San Francisco just doesn’t seem fair to  California fans. So Journey and Santana are balancing the bill with a newly added Los Angeles-area date in August.

The recently announced extravaganza takes place at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., Aug. 28.

The acts have intertwined throughout the decades with former Santana members Gregg Rolie and Neil Schon co-founding Journey in the ‘70s. Guitarist Schon will be playing double-duty for the shows which begin in New York City April 13 at Madison Square Garden.
