Journey, formed in San Francisco in 1973, is considered to to be one of the most successful rock bands of all time. The band’s greatest commercial success came in the late 1970s – early 1980s with a series of power ballads and songs like “Don’t Stop Believing“, “Any Way You Want It“, “Faithfully“, “Open Arms“, “Send Her My Love” “Separate Ways“, “Wheel in the Sky“, “Who’s Crying Now“, “Lights“, and “When You Love a Woman.”
Throughout Journey’s three decades of performance they have scored two gold, three platinum, and eight multi-platinum albums, including seven straight multi-platinum albums from 1978-1987. They have had 18 Top 40 singles, six of which have reached the top ten on Billboard Hot 100 chart. Their worldwide sales are nearly 80 million albums. In a 2005 poll by USA Today, Journey was voted one of the 5 best American rock band in history.
In December 2007, Journey hired Filipino-born singer Arnel Pineda (discovered on YouTube!) and debuted with their new lead vocalist in February 2008, then released the album Revelation in June. Revelation debuted at #5 on the Billboard charts, selling more than 196,000 units in its first two weeks and staying in the top 20 for 6 weeks.
