A third Journey concert has been added at the Blaisdell Arena for Feb. 26, with tickets on sale Friday, Jan. 6.
The band’s Feb. 23 concert sold out within hours of going on sale on Nov. 18. A Feb. 24 show at the arena was added on that day. The concerts are being presented by Live Nation and Honolulu’s BAMP Project. Promoters say only a handful of tickets are left for the Feb. 24 show, and the third concert will be the last show added for Honolulu.
With the addition of Filipino lead singer Arnel Pineda in 2007, Journey has enjoyed a new surge in popularity as a touring act. In 2012, the band filled the arena for three shows in December of that year, closing out their tour in Honolulu.
The band was a multi-platinum-selling hitmaker in the 1970s and 1980s. With Steve Perry as lead singer, the band created hits such as “Faithfully,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Wheel In The Sky,” “Separate Ways,” “Open Arms,” “Lovin, Touchin’, Squeezin’,” “Who’s Crying Now,” and the ubiquitous “Don’t Stop Believin’,” a top-selling digital track.
Tickets for the additional Blaisdell Arena show are $65 to $155. Beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, they can be purchased at ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000, or at Ticketmaster outlets including the Blaisdell Box Office and Walmart stores in Hawaii.
Live Nation and Maui Arts & Cultural Center will also bring Journey to the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (mauiarts.org) on Feb. 28.
