Since its formation in 1973 in San Francisco, JOURNEY has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide, earning 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums, and has headlined multiple sold-out stadium tours. The Greatest Hits album is certified 15 times-platinum, bringing JOURNEY into the elite club of diamond-certified award holders.  JOURNEY received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, and is the subject of the award-winning documentary, Don’t Stop Believin: Everyman’s Journey.’

Neal Schon (founding member and lead guitarist), Ross Valory (co-founder and bassist), and longtime members Jonathan Cain (keyboardist) and Arnel Pineda (lead singer), are welcoming virtuoso drummer Steve Smith back into JOURNEY, marking the first time he will perform with the band since 1998.  Schon’s musical career began at the age of 15, when he debuted with Santana as a guitar prodigy on the #1 album, Santana III. Since Arnel Pineda joined JOURNEY as its new lead singer in 2007, the band has released two albums and embarked on seven major tours, performing on four continents for more than five million fans, earning the group Billboard’s prestigious “Legend of Live Award.”

2015 was another milestone year for JOURNEY, including a three week, sold-out residency at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada; a sold-out Hollywood Bowl concert for the opening night of the Bowl’s 2015 Season, accompanied by the 120-piece Hollywood Bowl Orchestra; and an extensive, sold-out Canadian tour.  JOURNEY recently announced its upcoming “SAN FRANCISCO FEST 2016” tour with The Doobie Brothers and special guest Dave Mason, which launches on Thursday, May 12th, 2016 in Irvine, California and runs through Tuesday, August 30, 2016.

For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY® Awards. He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including “Album of the Year” and “Record of the Year” for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMY’s. He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009) and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on.

April 15, 2016 marks the release date of Santana IV, the wildly anticipated studio album that reunites the revered early ‘70s lineup of guitar icon Carlos Santana (guitar, vocals), Gregg Rolie (keyboards, lead vocals), Neal Schon (guitar, vocals), Michael Carabello (percussion) and Michael Shrieve (drums). Santana IV features 16 all-new tracks written and produced by the band that burst with the same unparalleled energy and superlative musicianship that made Santana a pioneering force in world music and a household name across the globe.

Santana is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. In the fall of 2014, Carlos Santana released his memoir The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light. It’s a profoundly inspiring tale of spiritual commitment and musical fearlessness that does not balk at finding the humor in the world of high-flying fame, nor at speaking plainly of Santana’s personal revelations and the divine and infinite possibility he sees in each person he meets.
