Tulsa Today is pleased to welcome classic rock bands Journey and Night Ranger to the BOK Center this evening for what is sure to be a lively night of great rock and roll.
Journey, who has sold over 47 million records, not only “created the power ballad” (BOK Center), they are a band that has truly survived the test of time.
Tickets for this evening’s show range from $29.50-$79.50 and may be purchased at the BOK Center box office or online at www.bokcenter.com.
Doors are scheduled to open at 6:30p.m. and the show starts at 7:30p.m. The BOK Center is requesting no audio, video or professional photography, please.
Journey’s new 10-week tour, which has been one of the most anticipated concerts of the year, is scheduled to end with a September 26 concert at New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, LA.
Just wrapping up a July 29-30 performance at Pala Casino in Pala, CA, the group arrives into Tulsa rested and ready to rock.
With this tour, Journey is promoting its 13th studio album, "Revelation," released in June 2008, which hit No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and peaked at No. 1 on the independent albums chart.
The Platinum-certified release is also the first to feature new lead singer Arnel Pineda, who is based in the Philippines.
“In early December 2007, Journey announced that the Manila-born vocalist would be the most recent replacement for original singer Steve Perry, who left the band after a hip injury suffered in 1997 prevented him from touring.
In the decade since Perry’s departure, several vocalists have filled in for him on the band’s tours and albums.” (Ticketnews.com)
