Hey Journey fans! It’s been an amazing 10 years and thanks for all the love and support. Unfortunately today we want to announce that due to the uncertain nature of my recovery from the vocal injury I sustained last year, after the current shows we have scheduled, we will be going on an indefinite hiatus. We are fulfilling the dates we currently have scheduled with Jason Kelty of Escape and Allen Brady, of New Orleans’ own Bottoms Up.
It was our hope that with the previous time off to rehabilitate the muscles in my throat that eventually I would return to form. However, the reality is that this is a constantly moving business, and without being able to fully predict when I would be able to perform these songs again, the venues and audiences we’ve built over the past ten years will have moved on with other acts and the market for our band would not have been sustainable. As a band, we cannot simply remain in a holding pattern for an unforeseen duration, and the best thing for all of us at this time is to move forward with other projects, and hopefully maintain a presence in the industry for many years to come.
We will continue to perform over the next couple of months and I certainly hope to see many of the friends we’ve made over the years as we play out this final hand. It has been an incredible experience, though one that has certainly taken it’s toll on all of us in a variety of ways. The overwhelmingly positive side of everything we’ve done has always been the support of so many fans of these great songs and the great music that Journey created for us.
We anticipate announcing some new ideas we have in the works in the very near future. Until then, thank you so much to the venues, agents, crew, and most importantly the fans that have sustained this band for so long. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again very soon.
