Journey/ Foreigner / Styx - UK Tour for 2011


Faron

Recommended Posts

Read this today at various places, it don`t get much better than this for me, albeit it`s a shame it wasn`t 30 years ago.

 

Supposedly the dates will be released in two weeks time.

 

I`ve seen Journey twice, once with Steve Augeri and once with Jeff Scott Soto (never with the legend Steve Perry :crying: )

 

Seen Foreigner four times, three times with the awesome Lou Gramm, first time in 1985 on the Agent Provocateur tour, went to see Foreigner with Kelly Hansen (excellent)

 

Went to see Styx around four years ago, no Dennis De Young but Lawrence Gowan was great and Styx were absolutely spot on brilliant.

Saw Journey with Augeri, again unfortunately not with Perry, Styx on the 'Paradise Theater' tour, but unfortunately i've never seen Foreigner, so will seriously look into going to this if dates allow.

Said it before, jammy sod as I got into Styx around 1983 so missed the chance to go to Stafford Bingley Hall with my cousin and dad to see Styx on the Paradise Theater tour, my dad still reckons it`s the best concert he ever went to and he`s seen some of my other faves in the 70`s, Rainbow, Boston, UFO, Scorps and Van Halen.

At least I got to see classic Foreigner :nyanya:

If this tour comes thru the US, I may have to break my Arnel-boycott to go see them.

 

I saw Journey twice w/ Augeri and loved it both times. I saw Styx in 1996 when DDY was still with them. I saw Foreigner w/ Gramm (but it was 1999 w/ Journey and Gramm, bless his heart, sounded horrible).

Arnel Journey > Augeri Journey.

 

He is awesome. I was gobsmacked at just how good he was when they played London a year or two back!

My dad is still into rock music at 67 years old, only yesterday, I ordered some Axel Rudi Pell cd`s for him.

He`s got a massive cd collection, used to be a guitarist in a band who supported Johnny Kidd And The Pirates (Shakin` All Over).

 

This is how I got into rock music in 1980, my dad had everything that was worth having at the time, he was always blasting his rock music out and I kind of got brainwashed, all my mates thought he was a cool dad.

Nick, I saw them in Brum too, me and my mate missed our train back and had to get a taxi and we had no money, dad bailed me out at other end. I was really disappointed Night Ranger were`nt supporting that night, that`s one of the few bands I really wanted to see.

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?   
    • The boy who cried... "hallowed be thy name".
    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound! Watch the video "Distance Between us":    
    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
