Journey Dedicate ‘Lights’ to Steve Perry at Classic West


Journey presented an energetic set of favorites at Classic West last night, with one cool twist: Singer Arnel Pineda dedicated “Lights” to his most famous predecessor, Steve Perry.

This highlight moment from Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium followed the singers’ emotional meeting prior to Journey’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction earlier this year. Pineda was photographed bowing before Perry, who led Journey from 1978-98. Perry then seemed to pass the proverbial torch to Pineda during the band’s acceptance speeches during the ceremony at New York’s Barclays Center.

For their Classic West performance, Journey dug a little deeper into a discography that stretches back to the mid ’70s. Their set included “La Do Da,” a song written by Perry and founding guitarist Neal Schon for 1978’s Infinity, as well as the title track from 1981’s Escape. Infinity was Perry’s debut album with the band; Escape was the first with keyboardist Jonathan Cain, who remains in the lineup.

Classic West also featured the Eagles‘ first concert since the death of founding member Glenn Frey; they were joined onstage by Bob Seger. Fleetwood Mac later performed a special tribute to Frey.
