Journey Will Play Two New York Shows On The Same Day
Neil Schon and the rest of Journey will need to take the "Wheel in the Sky" to get to two gigs on the same day in New York. Luckily they aren't too far apart and they won't have to fight New York City traffic to get to the shows.
Journey's first show of the day, August 21st, will be the huge Central Park Mega-Concert in Manhattan that is being organized by record executive Clive Davis. Journey will share the stage with Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon Jennifer Hudson, Patti Smith, and others that haven't been announced yet to fill out the four-hour concert. The concert will wrap up the summer concert series to celebrate New York's recovery from Covid.
After they wrap up an early slot for the Central Park Mega Concert Journey will jump on a helicopter and fly over to their next gig, the Tunnel 2 Towers Never Forget Concert to support victims of 9/11, first responders, and injured veterans. That show takes place on Long Island at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater. Journey will share the stage with Steve Miller, John Fogerty, Ann Wilson, and others for the huge charity show.
To make the schedule work Journey will only be able to play a few songs before they have to take off for the second show. After not being on stage for over a year due to the Covid shut down I hope they've got the energy and stamina for both shows.
