Journey Announce 2022 Tour With Billy Idol and Toto
Journey have announced a massive 2022 arena tour, with each show featuring an opening set from either Billy Idol or Toto.
The 40-show Freedom Tour launches on Feb. 22 in Pittsburgh, with Idol supporting through April 5 in Los Angeles. Toto will take over the opening slot from April 7 in San Diego through May 11 in Hartford, Conn. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Nov. 19.
"It's that time — time to get back to where we are used to being — on stage!" Journey guitarist Neal Schon said in a statement. "We are looking forward to shifting into high gear and bringing you the best show possible. The band is running on all 12 cylinders and very excited! Please come and join us once again for an evening full of rocking stage connection fun. See you soon, friends."
Idol added: "Touring next year with Journey is going to be great fun! An epic night you won’t want to miss." Toto guitarist Steve Lukather promised "a great night of music, and as all the guys are lifelong friends, a blast off stage as well."
Prior to the Freedom Tour, Journey will play a six-show residency in December at the Theater at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas. (Details can be found here.) They'll close out the year with a special symphony performance on Dec. 18 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
