Part 4 of the Departure Tour Book from 1980

Here is the next five pages of the Departure Tour Book.

We start with an article titled "The Story Of Journey" which tells the story through 1979's "Evolution". The band has the same line-up and therefore used the same pages from the 1979 Tour Book.

The next three pages are black and white pictures of the band members including Gregg Rolie. This was Gregg's last tour with Journey.

This was the tour that was recorded for 1981's "Captured" album.

The last page included here is another article titled "Journey: Behind The Scenes" which tells the earlier story of Journey through 1978's "Infinity"
