news: Wednesday 10th November 2010

Classic rock trio Journey, Foreigner and Styx have announced that they will be heading to the UK in June 2011 to play 5 cities together for the very first time in the UK.

Journey, whose biggest hit was 'Don't Stop Believin'', have performed around the world for nearly two years in support of the group's latest recording project, 'Revelation' and will have a new studio album out in the UK in Spring next year ahead of the tour.

On their return to the UK, guitarist Neal Schon said, "We're so excited to be coming back to the UK to play arenas with our friends Foreigner and Styx. Be prepared to hear a lot of hit songs."

More than 30 years after releasing their first multi-platinum album, Foreigner's hits include 'I Want To Know What Love Is', and 'Waiting For A Girl Like You' Their latest release, 'Can't Slow Down' was the band's first album of new music in more than 15 years. Mick Jones, the band's founder and songwriter/guitarist added, "This will be one of the main events of the summer. Bands who represent the magic era in Classic Rock together for the first time in my home country. Get ready to rock!"

Prog rockers Styx became the arena rock prototype throughout the late '70s and early '80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads. Over the course of their 38-year career they've released 15 studio albums, and 8 Top Ten singles including 'Come Sail Away'.

The tour will be sponsored by a new magazine Classic Rock Presents AOR, editor Geoff Barton said, "With melodic rock on the resurgence, this tour is going to be one of the must-sees of 2011. We're happy to set the ball rolling by featuring Journey on the cover of our brand new magazine, Classic Rock Presents AOR, which goes on sale on November 17."

The tour dates are as follows:

Sat 04 June Wembley Arena, London
Sun 05 June LG Arena, Birmingham
Tue 07 June Metro Arena, Newcastle upon Tyne
Wed 08 June MEN Arena, Manchester
Thu 09 June SECC, Glasgow

Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday 12th November priced at £42.50 for London and £40 elsewhere, and eGigs will have links to buy them then.
