Journey To Take Up Residency In Las Vegas

– Journey

Journey has announced details for a nine-date residency at Las Vegas’ The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in October. Tickets for the Oct. 9-26 run go on sale Friday.

The dates are scheduled to take place after the recently announced renovation of The Colosseum, being done in partnership with Live Nation this summer.

Neal Schon, Ross Valory, Jonathan Cain, Steve Smith and singer Arnel Pineda have carried on the band’s legacy, which dates back to its formation as a jazz/rock outfit in the 1970s by former members of Santana.

And it remains a touring powerhouse. Journey last toured on a co-bill with Def Leppard playing stadiums and major arenas, selling out most and winding up with two sold-out shows at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., that moved 24,020 tickets and grossed $2,697,656, marking the most lucrative tour in the band’s history.

Over the past three years, Journey has averaged 11,943 tickets sold and gross of $998,331 per show. So do the math and, if you’re a Journey fan planning a Vegas visit in October, get on that presale for the shows on Oct. 9, 11, 12, 16, 18, 19, 23, 25 and 26 at the 4,298-capacity Colosseum.
