If you’re ready for an evening of classic hits like you’re on a karaoke stage, mark your calendars for April 24, 2022, when Journey and Toto hit Cincinnati’s Heritage Bank Center.

The Freedom Tour kicks off February 22 in Pittsburgh before traveling to 40 cities across North America. Toto jumps in as support on April 7th.

Tickets for the Cincinnati show go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on November 19 at and at the Heritage Bank Center box office.

Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Journey has counted 19 top 40 singles since its formation in 1973 and has sold over 100 million albums. According to a press release, their The biggest hits The album is diamond certified, which means it has been platinum 15 times. And their singing standard “Don’t Stop Believin ‘” has been aired over a billion times.

The band’s lineup currently includes founder and guitarist Neal Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain, keyboardist Jason Derlatka, drummer Deen Castranovo and vocalist Arnel Pineda. Filipino rocker Pineda returned to vocals in 2007 after Schon saw his band perform covers of hits from Journey and others like Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin on YouTube. (Popular singer Steve Perry, who was with Journey at their peak of success in the 1970s and 1980s, left the group in 2007.)

“This is the time – the time to get back to where we are used to – on stage,” Schon said in the statement. “We can’t wait to take it up a notch and put on the best show possible for you. The group runs on its 12 cylinders and is very excited! Please come join us once again for an evening full of rocking scene connection fun. See you later friends.

Steve Lukather of Toto says, “On behalf of myself and the band, we are very honored and thrilled to be doing this tour with our old and dear friends Journey. It’s gonna be a great night of music, and since all the guys are longtime friends … a stage blast too. “
