Show hits the road with added dates

Journey has announced Toto as the opening act for all dates on the Freedom Tour 2022, replacing Billy Idol who has to step aside due to medical issues. Toto will join the diamond-selling Rock & Roll Hall of Famers as they take the stage in 40 cities across America with their catalog of global chart-topping hits.

The tour additionally announces two new shows, including Giant Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Friday, March 4th, and SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire on Sunday, March 6th. Tickets for these shows will go on sale to the public on Monday, February 7th at 10 am local time via Ticketmaster.

On Wednesday (Feb 2nd), Idol announced that he regretfully will no longer be able to appear on the tour due to a chronic sinus infection which will require surgery in the coming days, “I am absolutely gutted that I won’t be able to perform the upcoming dates with Journey as planned.” Journey and Toto wish Billy Idol all the best and hope to see him on the road again soon.

Presented by AEG Presents, the Freedom Tour 2022 begins February 22nd in Pittsburgh, PA – making stops in Los Angeles, Detroit, NY area plays in Belmont Park and Newark, and more – before wrapping May 11th in Hartford, CT.

Journey is set to release Freedom in 2022 with further details to be revealed.
