Legendary rockers Journey are set to release a new in-concert film Journey – Live In Japan 2017: Escape + Frontiers, which will be issued through Eagle Rock Entertainment on DVD, Blu-ray, DVD+2CD and Blu-ray+2CD on 29 March 2019.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers proved their status as one of rock’s best live bands when they brought their landmark albums Escape (just in time for its 35th anniversary) and Frontiers to the legendary Budokan stage in Japan.

In a triumphant evening of music, Journey thus presented songs from the two much-acclaimed albums. These records, which produced eight Top 40 singles combined, have sold nearly 20 million copies worldwide, and cemented the San Francisco band’s music in the cultural zeitgeist.

Kicking off the 2-hour set with ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’, Journey kicked into high gear, presenting a set not just of their hits, but deep album cuts like Escape’s ‘Lay It Down’ and Frontiers’ ‘Back Talk,’ which haven’t been played live since the albums’ original touring cycles.

The concert, presented with a minimal stage set, without big extravagant light shows or monitors, let the music do the talking. The spectacular musicianship of Neal Schon (founder / guitarist), Jonathan Cain (keyboardist), Ross Valory (bassist), Steve Smith (drummer), and Arnel Pineda (lead vocals) shines on famed hits like ‘Open Arms,’ ‘Who’s Crying Now,’ ‘Separate Ways (Worlds Apart),’ and ‘Faithfully.’
