The band’s Greatest Hits album is certified 15 times platinum, bringing Journey into the elite club of Diamond-certified album holders. Journey was awarded the prestigious “Legend Of Live Award” at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards in honor of the band’s significant and lasting contributions to live music and the touring business, and in acknowledgement of their commitment to the fans and the art of performing live. The 2011 Eclipse World Tour was of the band’s most successful tours ever, drawing nearly a million fans and ranked in the Top 15 Tours of the year. 2011 also marked the 30th anniversary of the band’s seminal anthem, Don’t Stop Believin’, which was honored as the top-selling digital classic rock song in history by Nielsen SoundScan. The group received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005. For more information, visit www.journeymusic.com.
With trademark red leather pants and bandanas to match their huge rock sound and high-energy live shows, LOVERBOY has sold more than 10 million albums and earned multi-platinum plaques for albums such as their self-titled debut LP, Get Lucky, Keep It Up and Lovin’ Every Minute of It. The string of hits include the band’s smash anthem Working For The Weekend, as well as Hot Girls In Love, Turn Me Loose, and Lovin’ Every Minute Of It. Loverboy’s continued pop culture relevance is alive and well in 2012, with recent references to the band in episodes of NBC’s hit show ‘30 Rock’ and Comedy Network’s popular ‘Regular Show.’
NIGHT RANGER truly epitomizes the sound of the 80’s while at the same time transcending it. The band’s legendary hits "Sister Christian," "(You Can Still) Rock in America," and "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" are songs that have each significantly impacted popular culture and expanded their ever-growing fan base since the band’s inception. Night Ranger’s contributions are featured in multiple entertainment realms, including the Broadway musical "Rock of Ages" and hit videogame series "Rock Band" and "Guitar Hero." The band has also been recognized in such significant films and television shows as Boogie Nights and American Dad.
