I just got finished watching the Greatest Hits dvd and I was knocked out! I saw journey on the Raised on Radio tour in Pittsburgh back in the day and have fond memories, but I didnt really think about how "great" Perry was back then. I actually said "WOW" out loud a few times.
For that era, he was awesome. That Escape tour footage showed that he could "bring it".
I really hope that more stuff from the original band comes out on dvd.

I gonna watch it again!!!!!!

Peace!

Where did you see ROR in Pittsburgh?
I saw journey there at the "civic arena" in 1981.
I don't think it is called that now...have been gone 20 years.

You are right Perry is and was damn good.

It was called the Civic Arena. Now its the Mellon Arena.

I remember it clearly because my sister took me along after her friend got sick. Lucky for me!!!!

I was 13 years old. Im pretty positive it was the ROR tour. I think Journey played 2 nights in Pittsburgh on that tour. I remember her saying that we were attending the first night. Journey was HUGE.

Journey at their peak was surely a site to see. My friends were jealous that I got to see them. I feel fortunate to have seen them at their peak Popularity speaking).

Randy Jackson in the spandex cracks me up every time I see it. Classic!

Now it's called the "Igloo" in honor of the Penguins whoplay NHL hockey there.

Yeah, Journey was THE BAND then weren't they? Nobody was bigger.

I've listened to a ton of bootlegs over the years of different eras of the band, and I honestly don't like their sound during ROR. It sounds too rushed....kinda sloppy. It was hard to recognize a song at the start sometimes even (ex. Wheel in the Sky)

I like them best in the late 70's in terms of live sound.

:( ..I wish I could have been to some of those huge arena shows that they did....I was too young to go at the time and none were within the region I lived in...

Journey played the Civic Arena on October 19 and 20, 1985, I think. I couldn't go because that was my daughter's birthday. I was bummed but thought, "Oh well, I can see them next year"..... and we know how that went!
