No Journey at SPAC for Pretenders

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Journey – led by founding member and guitarist Neal Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain and vocalist Arnel Pineda, have canceled their 2020 tour as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions regarding large gatherings. 

Journey and the Pretenders were slated to perform at Saratoga Performing Arts Center Aug. 1. 

The band released a joint statement this week which reads: “Having seen what the world has endured during the last 45 days, and not knowing what the rest of this year or 2021 will bring, we knew the right thing to do was to make sure our fans’ health was not put in jeopardy and to provide immediate access to refund options given the unexpected events caused by this terrible virus. We would like to thank all doctors, nurses, police, other first responders and essential workers for their heroic efforts; as well as our fans for doing everything possible to stay safe.” 

Journey's tour partners at Live Nation will ensure ticket holders will be emailed directly with their refund options including a full refund, or you can request a 150% credit + Live Nation will donate the number of tickets you originally purchased to healthcare workers on the front lines.
