Why Resurrection: A Journey Tribute makes a show worth seeing
Anyone who has been paying attention to music during the past 10 to 20 years or more has seen and heard changes in the music industry. Except when they are re-created, the feel and sound of arena rock are gone. Journey was one of the most popular bands of this era of big sound. Perry in particular, had a unique vocal style that involves power and dynamics. Capturing this way of singing for modern audiences, even if just for one night, teaches people what Journey offered to rock music overall, and what arena rock meant to fans of the genre.
Arena rock involves high energy, usually anthem-like songs, that were fully capable of inspiring thousands of people packed into the arena, into singing along. For those who were not present, the songs became radio-friendly tunes that made their way into popular culture. Several years ago, Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” was featured prominently in the movie musical, “Rock of Ages” starring Tom Cruise.
Journey’s brand of arena rock appeals to people because of its universal truths. When “Faithfully” tells its story of a musician struggling to keep his family life together while working as a traveling performer, the specifics translate to anyone with long hours that are not conducive to work-life balance who needs to communicate that he or she is still a willing partner in a relationship. Similarly, people can understand the sentiments of “Strung Out,” “Stone In Love,” and “Ask the Lonely” without any interpretation. Resurrection’s re-creation of the sound and feel of Journey’s works is a feat that must be experienced.
Resurrection: A Journey Tribute’s tickets are $15 each. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. For more information, visit: https://www.etix.com/ticket/p/3733138/resurrectiona-journey-tribute-exodus-2020-tour-fort-wayne-clyde-theatre.
