Journey Raised On Radio Tour Book 1986 Concert Program, part 2

The 1986-1987 Raised On Radio Tour was 5 months long spanning from August 23, 1986 until January 31, 1987. The band didn't play in Los Angeles during this tour and I never saw them. Glass Tiger was the main opening band for this tour across America. There was no European stops and only 2 in Japan.

The Tour Book continues with some great photos of the "new" band. In keeping with the theme of the album, the next two pages talk about the Radio and how the members of the band grew up listening to the radio. Well, at least three of them did. Thankfully Randy keeps his shirt buttoned up for these photos.

The next two pages are very interesting. Since this is the first Tour with Randy and Mike, where did the pictures come from that are in the Raised On Radio Tour Book. Was this book available at the first date played of the Tour? Anyway, it's a great montage of the band during the Raised On Radio Tour that was on sale during the "Raised On Radio" Tour.

This Tour was unfortunately cut short when Steve Perry wanted to stop. After the Tour Journey as a band was not heard from until November 3, 1991 for the Bill Graham Memorial at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, California. Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, and Steve Perry once again took the Stage to sing two songs, "Faithfully", and "Lights" to a less than enthusiastic audience. Steve does try his best to get the crowd into it though.

  1. I read somewhere that Steve was sicker than a dog when they performed at Golden Gate Park in San Fransisco. I think the audience should have been ashamed of themselves for the way they behaved.They should have been grateful for the effort. Wished I had been there.
