Journey Reunite with Randy Jackson for Virtual "Don't Stop Believin'" Performance
"This is a completely new chapter for us and can't wait to get to it!"
Published May 24, 2020After firing drummer Steve Smith and bassist Ross Valory earlier this year, Journey have reunited in a virtual performance with their new lineup — including their former session musician, TV personality and recording artist Randy Jackson, who had previously played with the band in the late '80s.
Appearing on UNICEF's COVID-19 relief benefit stream, the new lineup performed the band's classic 1981 track "Don't Stop Believin'" via isolation livestream.
"Journey is an ever-changing unstoppable force," founding member Neal Schon wrote on Twitter earlier today, "This is a completely new chapter for us and can't wait to get to it!"
Journey were scheduled to head out on a world tour later this year. Due to the ongoing pandemic, they have, of course, cancelled the entire run. The new lineup was meant to debut on the trek.
