Original Journey frontman Steve Perry briefly reunited with his former Journey bandmates on Tuesday (Oct 14th) during Game 3 of the NLCS featuring the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
Decked in orange and black Giants gear, cameras caught Perry in the stands rocking out to his band’s most famous hit, “Don’t Stop Believin’,” blaring over the sound system during a break in the action. He encourages the fans to sing along as he lip syncs before running through the crowd of cheering fans.
“He went down among some people,” Fox broadcaster Joe Buck announces. “They love him here!”
“They love him here!”
Perry may have brought the Giants the luck they needed as they beat the Cardinals 5-4 in ten innings of gut-wrenching baseball, putting the Giants up 2 games to 1 on the Cards in the seven game series. Game 4 is slated for Wednesday (Oct 15) afternoon at AT&T Park. No word on whether Perry will be in attendance.
This isn’t the first time Perry has been spotted singing along during Giants post season home games. In 2010, Perry was spotlighted during Game 5 of the NLCS leading the crowd in singing “Don’t Stop Believin’.” In the eighth inning of the second game of the 2010 World Series in San Francisco against the Texas Rangers, fans began singing along to the Journey song “Lights” when Perry was shown on the scoreboard singing, jumping and pumping up the crowd. The Giants went on to win that game 9–0.
