Journey welcomes an old friend and plans the future

You may have see the recent posts on Journey’s Facebook page that the band is reuniting with drummer Steve Smith and hitting the road with the Doobies next year.

Though details have yet to be officially confirmed, Schon has told Facebook followers that Journey will in fact be performing with Santana before they start the Doobies tour.

On his own Facebook page, Schon teased the possibility of full-album performances from Journey next year, asking fans if anyone would be interested in seeing them play the complete Escape and Frontiers LPs — and when a fan reacted to the news of Smith’s return by asking the band to bring back former keyboard player Gregg Rolie, Schon responded that “there will be intermingling” between bands when Journey performs with Santana, who will be playing with their original lineup.
