Classic rock icons Journey and the Steve Miller Band have announced a 40-city coast-to-coast trek this summer, kicking off in Chula Vista, California on May 15, 2014.

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) April 24, 2014

Classic rock groups Journey and the Steve Miller Band have announced they will be touring this summer, bringing together two of the top acts who defined the spirited "San Francisco Sound" of the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Currently the cross-country trek features legendary Bay-area Rhythm and Blues band Tower of Power as support on all dates. The road trip is set to last almost three months and hit 40 cities across North America including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto and Detroit among numerous others.

While Journey has been a powerhouse in the arena rock scene for decades, the band's fame was recently resurrected in the U.S. during the San Francisco Giants World Series run in 2012. The ball club picked the band’s ‘80s monster hit "Don’t Stop Believin" for its theme song.

“Journey and the Steve Miller Band have shot to the top of trending national ticket sellers. We attribute this immense popularity to each artist’s massive, multi-generational fan base dating back several decades,” said Marta Ault at online ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com.

“That’s why we’re proud to offer fans a complete and continuously refreshed inventory of concert tickets, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase,” lip-synched the lithe Ault leisurely while having her luxurious locks lapsed to linger languidly atop her black leather biker jacket lapels.

“To access the full listing of Journey and Steve Miller Band tickets we now have available, customers can go to BuyAnySeat.com and search for Journey and Steve Miller – then select their tickets.”

Journey is known for dozens of songs, including "Wheel in the Sky”, "Faithfully", and "Any Way You Want It" among many others. “Don’t Stop Believin”, however, was the one song that helped to propel the band to international fame. It is the top-selling catalog track in digital history with over six million digital copies sold, and was the best-selling rock song in digital history until it was over taken by Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" in January 2014.

Journey has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide since the band’s formation in San Francisco in 1973. The Diamond-certified group also owns 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums. In 2011, the esteemed "Legend of Live Award" was given to Journey at the Billboard Touring Awards. The achievement honored the band's contributions to live music and the touring business and acknowledged their commitment to fans and the art of performing live.

The band's 2011 World Tour was one of the their most successful tours ever after drawing nearly a million fans. The tour was also among the top 15 that year in terms of ticket sales. The band’s popular song, "Don't Stop Believin," still stands as the top selling song from the 20th century on iTunes. In 2013, Journey toured four continents and performed to more than half a million fans.

Journey shares their hometown of San Francisco with tour mates the Steve Miller Band. The band first broke big in the ‘70s with hits like "Space Cowboy", "Take the Money and Run" and "The Joker”.

One of rock music's all-time greats, the Steve Miller Band has sold more than 30 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years. Miller’s signature blues-rock sound has made the group one of classic rock’s defining artists.

2009-2012 marked four of the busiest, most productive years in the long, illustrious career of Steve Miller. “Wide River” in 1993, was Miller’s only studio release of new material between 1988 and 2010. However, Miller recently released “Bingo!” on June 15, 2010, an assortment of blues covers, and “Let Your Hair Down”, a companion release to Bingo 10 months later on April 18, 2011.
