Journey, Steve Miller Band bring hits to White River

You have to wonder what the guys in Journey are thinking.

Steve Perry, the band's most famous frontman, walked away from the band 20 years ago. Then, out of nowhere, he popped up at a few shows in June to sing old Journey hits — with the indie rock band Eels. His surprise reappearance made news around the world.

His former bandmates might be thinking: Why couldn't Perry have done that with us?

After all, there are opportunities. The band is back on tour this summer, playing the White River Amphitheatre at 6:45 p.m. Saturday with Arnel Pineda singing lead. The vocalist, discovered by the band members via YouTube, has served as a capable stand-in for Perry since 2008.

During its show here, the group will no doubt play songs Perry made famous, including “Don't Stop Believin',” “Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin',” and “Lights.” Don't be surprised if the band also includes newer material, like “Anything Is Possible,” a single off the group's 2011 album, “Eclipse.”

Perry, meanwhile, probably won't sing songs off of “Eclipse” when he appears, you know, wherever he chooses to appear.
Journey's opener at the White River Amphitheatre, the Steve Miller Band, also can lean on a well-loved back catalog to put together its set list. The group is responsible for classic rock staples such as “The Joker,” “Fly Like an Eagle” and “Rock'n Me.”

Tickets are $38.50 to $172 at ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.
Perry's good natured bonhomie & the world’s most charmin smile,knocked fans off their feet. Sportin a black tux,gigs came alive as he swished around the stage thrillin audiences w/ charisma that instantly burnt the oxygen right out of the venue.TR.com
