Manila, Philippines – Filipino singer Arnel Pineda said he just finished doing more than 90 shows in South America and Europe as the lead singer of Journey, contrary to speculations that he is no longer part of the American rock band.
“Yeah, yeah. Ika-4th year ko na with Journey,” he said in an interview on ABS-CBN morning show “Kris TV.”
According to Pineda, he and his group performed in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Peru, Mexico, England, Germany, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Belgium and Netherlands.
Pineda became the newest frontman of Journey in December 2007. He was discovered by Journey’s Nel Schon via YouTube.
In the interview, Pineda shared that Journey will be having big shows next year, including one with American country music band Rascal Flatts.
“The next tour will happen next year. We will have a two-show crossroad thing with the Rascal Flatts,” he said. “It will happen on the third week of February in Nashville. They will sing a couple of Journey songs, then we will sing their songs.”
Pineda said that by March, Journey will start doing their three-part show in South America with bands Styx, Loverboy, Foreigner and Heart. (abs-cbnnews.com)
