Journey is returning to a new Las Vegas residency in a new location. When Journey returns to Las Vegas it will be for a brief residency at The Theater inside Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Coincidentally, KISS performed its last Las Vegas residency inside the Hard Rock which is now known as Virgin. The next KISS Las Vegas residency will take place at Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood.
Journey Show Dates at Virgin
Journey is returning to Las Vegas to play a residency at The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. If you’ve seen Journey for the past decade, you know that this isn’t the original lineup. However, this group has been playing together for years. Arnel Pineda has been the lead singer for Journey since 2008.
Journey currently features co-founder Neal Schon (lead guitarist), Jonathan Cain (keyboards, backing vocals), Arnel Pineda (lead vocals), Randy Jackson (bass), Narada Michael Walden (drums) and Jason Derlatka (Keyboards).
The group will perform their global hits including “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Wheel in the Sky,” “Who’s Crying Now” and more. This limited engagement will take place on the following nights in December:
- December 1, 2, 7, 8, 10, 11
“We’re thrilled to be welcoming JOURNEY back to Las Vegas for this brand new residency. They’re such an iconic force and their songs are known and loved world-wide, we can’t wait to welcome their fans back for more unforgettable shows,” said Bobby Reynolds, senior vice president at AEG Presents Las Vegas.
