Neal Schon Says Journey Are Headlining Lollapalooza Next Year

If the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t derail their plans, Journey will be headlining the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago next year. Guitarist Neal Schon confirmed the news during a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk.”

Schon said the following:

“I’m dying to get on stage again. We have our first date booked for Lollapalooza, and we’re headlining in Chicago. And that’s supposedly in April. Hopefully that’ll not get pushed back, because vaccine is finally here. And hopefully they start dispersing it very quickly so everybody can get back on their feet and can get out and hear music, ’cause that’s what heals the world, I think.”

He continued when it was mentioned that the band were on an odd choice for a festival that mainly features alternative rock, hip-hop and electronic artists:

“I have not seen the bill. Alls I know is we’re headlining it. I can guarantee you that with the new blood in the band, when we get together for two weeks of rehearsal before that show, we will be the new alternative. [Laughs] We’re gonna add a lot to the show. We’re gonna bring some new dynamics and open things up a bit and show people what the musicianship is really like in this band.”
