Iconic ’80s band journeys
back to Blaisdell Arena


Twelve years after the band made Hawaii history by selling out five consecutive shows at the Blaisdell Arena, Journey makes its return to the Honolulu venue with a concert on Oct. 10.

While the core of guitarist Neal Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain and bassist Ross Valory remains intact, the group now includes drummer Deen Castronovo and singer Steve Augeri, described as having similar range and strength (maybe even more strength) as former vocalist Steve Perry.

As the decades have passed, some of the songs of the '80s mainstream rock band represent some of the era's defining radio moments -- "Lights," "Anytime," "Wheel in the Sky," "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'," "Any Way You Want It," "Don't Stop Believin'," "Who's Cryin' Now," "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" and "Faithfully."

Reserved tickets at $45 and $55 go on sale at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Blaisdell Arena box office and all Ticket Plus outlets, including Foodland and Sack 'N' Save, the University of Hawaii-Manoa Campus Center, JCB Waikiki and select military locations.

Tickets can also be purchased by calling 526-4400 or online at A nominal service charge applies at all locations.

Call 591-2211.



Tickets go on sale Saturday for the "Celebrate America -- Celebrate Aloha Concert" featuring the Commodores, with guests Yvonne Elliman and The Makaha Sons, above. The benefit for Rotary International will be held at 6 p.m. Sept. 7 at the Waikiki Shell. Tickets are $21 for lawn seats, $36-$46 for pavilion seats, available at Blaisdell outlets.
