Journey and The Steve Miller Band's 2015 co-headline U.S. tour launch has run afoul of bad weather. The multi-platinum pair were scheduled to kick off their 2015 U.S. tour along with special guest Tower of Power on March 5 in Austin, Texas, at Austin360 Amphitheatre.
According to a news release posted March 3 at the official website of Journey, near record- low freezing temperatures forecasted in the central Texas region have forced the veteran pair of San Francisco rockers to postpone the show. The statement also noted a concern for other hazardous weather conditions, which could impact travel and the safety of crew and fans.
The Austin show has been rescheduled for Sun., March 29. All tickets and passes for the March 5 performance will be honored on the new date. For more information, click here.
