Journey at Cruzan Amphitheatre, September 18

Journey will never die — not as long as there are barroom jukeboxes and arenas alike that will benefit from some fist-pumping (and probably slightly drink-sodden) sing-alongs. As proof, consider the fact that the group's seminal mainstream hit, "Don't Stop Believin'," is iTunes' top-selling catalog track ever. That one song, though, tends to overshadow the rest of the band's powerhouse history, which includes a string of seven multiplatinum albums between 1978 and 1987.

Fans too don't even seem bothered that the original, otherworldly voice on those tracks is no longer the one they'll hear live. Since 2007, the band's been fronted by the much younger Arnel Pineda, a Philippines national that the group famously discovered via YouTube. Pineda has proved more than capable of replicating Steve Perry's vocals, though, while adding a touch of his own flavor and lighting up the stage with a true rock star's command.

Was the writer even at the show?  Journey was so terrible hundreds of people packed up and left throughout their show.  Yes, they overdid it with Schon's guitar solos but he and the choruses were the only elements that sounded like Journey.  Arnel Pineda didn't sound ANYTHING like Steve Perry.  How could the writer claim he sounded like Perry?  I've heard karaoke in bars where the singer sounded more like Perry.  And his stage presence wasn't "rock star", it was more like a 13 year old jumping around and waving his arms.  He was horrendous!!!  When he tried to hit one high note on Wheel in the Sky, his voice cracked and no sound came out.  Many of the people around us were laughing at how bad he sounded.  Easily the worst replacement front man I've every seen.  Ever.At least Foreigner sounded like Foreigner even though they had no original band members.  If you closed your eyes and listened, they sounded pretty close.  If you closed your eyes and listened to Pineda butcher Steve Perry, it sounded like you were at a junior high school dance listening to a bad cover band.An absolutely terrible review.
