The storied performers of Journey delight fans with powerful guitar, catchy hooks, and virtuosic singing. Lead singer Arnel Pineda's octave-smashing range combines with guitarist Neal Schon's monumental chords and the musical teamwork of Ross Valory's bass, Jonathan Cain's keyboard, and Deen Castronovo's drums, creating tuneful tapestries that inspire ears like a stirring soliloquy from a bald eagle. Touring in support of its new album, Eclipse, the band is able to draw upon an aural arsenal that includes hits such as "Don’t Stop Believin'," "Any Way You Want It," and "Faithfully." The power balladeers of Night Ranger supplement the sonic revelry with their own swelling melodies and dueling guitars.
The concert takes place at the open-air Saratoga Performing Arts Center, which harbors space for more than 5,000 fans. Designed to house the delicate melodies of classical orchestras, the amphitheater's exquisite acoustics ensure that not even the quietest note can slip past watchful ears to take unattended cars on concert-long joyrides.
