YouTube/Ellen Show

Journey will pair up with very special guests Asia for a string of U.S. spring dates. The legendary San Francisco rockers will unite with the veteran British prog-rockers for a dozen shows, which will take place  from mid-March through April.

Ultimate Classic Rock reports on Dec. 6 that the arena tour will focus on smaller markets, starting out on the west coast and primarily hitting cities in the mid-west U.S. The announcement follows in the wake of Journey's announcement on Monday of a new nine-show residency to take place from between May 3 - May 20 in Las Vegas at  The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

The spring romp will kick off March 15 in Yakima, Washington, at Yakima Valley SunDome. The “Don't Stop Believin'” hitmakers and the “Heat of the Moment” hitmakers will make multiple city stops in Washington, Wisconsin and Indiana along the way before wrapping April 4 in Dayton, Ohio, at Wright State University's Nutter Center.

Presales for select shows will begin Tues., Dec. 6 at 10:00 a.m. local time with VIP packages available. Tickets for most shows will go on sale to the public Fri., Dec.9  at 10:00 a.m. local time. For more information, click here.

“Asia is honored to be asked to share the stage with Journey,” wrote Asia lead vocalist and cancer survivor John Wetton in a press release posted Monday at the official website of Asia. “On a personal note, this couldn’t have come at a better time for me; I remain determined and my road to a full recovery continues. I look forward to seeing everyone on the tour next year.”

Journey were recently among the rock elite nominated as a candidates for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2017 induction, which will be held on a date TBA in April in Brooklyn, New York, at Barclays Center. The multi-platinum sellers currently hold a healthy lead in the fan vote category and are heavily favored by pundits to be inducted.

Prior to their spring run with Asia, Journey will head overseas for a winter tour of the Far East, which begins Feb. 1 in  Osaka, Japan at Castle Hall. Tickets for select Journey events are available at AXS.
