Watch Journey’s stirring live performance of Separate Ways

Journey

Journey have released a video showcasing their performance of Separate Ways.

The footage has been taken from the band’s upcoming package Live In Japan 2017: Escape + Frontiers, which was recorded at Tokyo’s famous Budokan.

It’ll launch on DVD, Blu-ray, DVD/2CD and Blu-ray/2CD on March 29 via Eagle Rock Entertainment and documents the special show where Journey played material from their 1981 album Escape and 1983's Frontiers.

Check out the video below.

A statement on the release reads: “These albums, 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 two-hour set with Don't Stop Believin’, Journey kicks 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.”

Journey guitarist Neal Schon will return to the stage tomorrow night in Jackson and on Saturday in Oakland on his Journey Through Time shows.

Last month, he extended an open invitation to former Journey vocalist Steve Perry to join him (opens in new tab).
