Band members Neal Schon, Ross Valory, Jonathan Cain, Steve Smith and Arnel Pineda had the entire crowd on their feet as they kicked off the night with their timeless mega-hit, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” Throughout the high-energy, nearly 2.5 hour performance, concertgoers sang along to some of their favorite Journey songs including “Who’s Crying Now,” “Separate Ways,” “Open Arms,” “Send Her My Love,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Lovin, Touchin’, Squeezin’,” and many more.
