Steve Perry First Performance Since 90's, Audience Takes Him With Open Arms

Don't stop believing! It's true! On Sunday, May 25th former Journey lead singer Steve Perry took to the stage to perform live for the first time in almost 20 years with alternative rock band Eels at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN.

While the collaboration may have been unusual and unexpected, the audience was incredibly stoked by Perry's surprise performance with the band. Though the age of Perry's voice was apparent, the renditions of classic Journey songs 'Open Arms' and ‘Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin’ were nearly flawless and were well received; initiating cheering and the audience singing along.

Perry initially left Journey back in 1986, only to return for one album (Trial By Fire) and tour ten years later. Outside of Journey, Perry only has two solo albums; the more recent of the two having been out since 1994. Since the 90's Perry has for the most part stayed off of the public radar. However, recently he has alluded that he may have new music in the works. It is confirmed that not long ago he worked on one track with electronic band AWOLNATION for their upcoming album which is currently unnamed.
