Journey – Neal Schon (founding member and lead guitarist), Ross Valory (co-founding member and bassist), longtime members Jonathan Cain (keyboardist) and Steve Smith (drummer), and Arnel Pineda (lead singer) – have set an extensive 2020 North American tour with the Pretenders. The 60+ date tour, produced by Live Nation, begins May 15 and continues through Sept. 12.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 8, at 10 a.m. local time here.

Fans can expect to hear such Journey classic rock favorites as “Lights,” “Faithfully,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Open Arms,” “Wheel In The Sky,” “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart),” and “Don’t Stop Believin’,” as well as Pretenders’ hits like “I’ll Stand By You,” “Back on the Chain Gang,” “Brass in Pocket,” “Don’t Get Me Wrong,” “2000 Miles,” “My City Was Gone,” “Middle of the Road,” and more.

From the Oct. 31 announcement: Pretenders cross the bridge between punk, new wave and pop music like no other band. The band has sold over 25 million albums and founder and leader Chrissie Hynde is one of contemporary music’s greatest songwriters. Her 2015 memoir, Reckless: My Life As a Pretender, was hailed by the New York Times upon its release as “honest and distinctive… a love letter to rock and roll.”

Their Greatest Hits album is certified 15x Platinum. The band’s 2018’s co-headlining tour with Def Leppard was the band’s most successful tour to date, landing them in the Top 10 year-end touring chart with more than one million tickets sold.
