For the first time ever Journey, Whitesnake and Thunder will perform together onstage, rocking the UK in a string of arena dates in May 2013. And here at Planet Rock, we have a 24-hour ticket pre-sale beginning on Thursday at 10am!
Holding the accolade of #1 digital catalogue song in history, along with 25 gold and platinum albums under their belt, Journey were awarded the prestigious "Legend of Live" award at the 2011 Billboard Touring awards. Their current line up will include Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory, Deen Castronovo and Arnel Pineda.
Whitesnake have big plans for 2013, including a live DVD and double album "Unfinished Business". Founder David Coverdale stated that "after a year in the studio we're ready to rock on stage again...We're coming back for more..."
Despite splitting in 2009, Thunder returned to the scene in 2011 for a triumphant live performance at High Voltage in London, then two sold-out Christmas shows in 2012.
"We've already discussed possibly doing some shows next year, so this is perfect, and it's a great bill" said singer Danny Bowes. "Let's fact it, we could all do with a bit of cheering up at the moment, so hopefully the people who come will get a brilliant night out and go home happy. I'm sure we will."
