5-month tour kicks off Friday, May 15

Journey – Neal Schon (founding member and lead guitarist), Ross Valory (co-founding member and bassist), longtime members Jonathan Cain (keyboardist) and Steve Smith (drummer), and Arnel Pineda (lead singer) – have set an extensive North American tour in 2020 with The Pretenders that will feature all-new production and hits from start to finish.

The 60-date-plus tour, produced by Live Nation, runs Friday, May 15, through Saturday, Sept. 12. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. local time Friday, Nov. 8. A listing of local tour dates can be found below.

Fans can expect to hear iconic Journey classics such as “Lights,” “Faithfully,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Open Arms,” “Wheel In The Sky,” “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart),” and the seminal “Don’t Stop Believin’,” which is the top-selling digital catalog track in history, as well as Pretenders’ hits such as “I’ll Stand By You,” “Back On The Chain Gang,” “Brass In Pocket,” “Don’t Get Me Wrong,” “2000 Miles,” “My City Was Gone” and “Middle of the Road.”

The Pretenders cross the bridge between punk, new wave and pop music like no other band, with genre-defining songs such as “I'll Stand By You,” “Back On The Chain Gang” and “Don't Get Me Wrong.” The band has sold over 25 million albums. Founder and leader Chrissie Hynde is one of contemporary music's top songwriters. Her 2015 memoir, “Reckless: My Life As a Pretender,” was hailed by the New York Times upon its release. After delivering 2016’s unflinchingly headstrong “Alone” album (produced by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach), The Pretenders continue to tour worldwide.

Journey is one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, creating some of the best-known songs in modern music. Since the group’s formation in 1973, the band has earned 19 top 40 singles and 25 Gold and Platinum albums while selling nearly 100 million albums globally. Their “Greatest Hits” album is certified 15 times-Platinum, bringing Journey into the elite club of Diamond-certified award holders.

The band continues to tour and record into the 21st century, performing concerts for millions of fans worldwide, and receiving the prestigious Billboard "Legends of Live" touring award. 2018’s massive co-headlining tour with Def Leppard was the band’s most successful tour to date, landing Journey in the Top 10 year-end touring chart with more than 1 million tickets sold.

In 2017, Journey was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In March 2019, Journey released a live DVD/CD set from their concert at the Budokan in Tokyo, featuring the first-ever performances of the band’s “Escape” and “Frontiers” albums in their entireties.

Journey received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, and is the subject of the award-winning documentary, “Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey.”
