#MyYearOfConcerts continued last night up in Spokane…I went to see Journey with Toto as the opening act!
Gotta be honest. In the days/weeks leading up to this one, I was kinda meh about it. In my quest to see at least one concert per month, there weren’t many concerts to choose from in April. I texted my son earlier in the week: “not super super excited because no Steve Perry, but it was the best (almost only) option for April”.
Then I texted him and Cari right after the show: “Holy shit that rocked”!!!
It’s funny that I (we?) think of Journey as Steve Perry’s band — makes sense, they had all their biggest hits with him. But Arnel Pineda has now been Journey’s lead singer longer than Perry was. And damn, dude can sing! I know there’s been some drama and battles internally with Journey over the last year but there was no sign of anything like that during the show. They put on a great show.
Oh, and I was not prepared for how much Toto rocks. Steve Lukather has gotta be one of the most underrated guitarists around. They were a fantastic opener.
#MyYearOfConcerts continues — got lots of shows lined up over the rest of the year and always looking for more!
We went to that show last year and had so much fun too! Toto seriously rocked, when you realize their age, it’s even more impressive!
Yes, it was sooooo good. Living proof that rock music ain’t just for/by the young folks. 🤟
