Journey and Toto reunited in Montreal for a spectacular performance


The Toto and Journey concert was a night to remember for fans of classic rock. Both bands took the stage to deliver an incredible for their 50th Anniversary Freedom Tour at the Bell Center in Montreal, Canada.

Toto kicked off the night with a powerful set that showcased their unique blend of rock, pop, and jazz. They played hits like “Hold the Line,” “Rosanna,” and “Africa,” each one eliciting cheers and applause from the crowd. The band’s musicianship was on full display, with each member delivering a virtuosic performance.

Next up was Journey, who wasted no time getting the audience pumped up with their energetic performance. Lead vocalist Arnel Pineda commanded the stage with his soaring vocals, while the rest of the band provided a tight and cohesive backing. Journey’s set was packed with hits like “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Wheel in the Sky,” and “Open Arms,” which had the crowd singing along at the top of their lungs. There was a sense of nostalgia and warmth that permeates the atmosphere, and it’s clear that Journey‘s music holds a special place in the hearts of Canadians.

The drummer exhibited his singing abilities by performing ”Walks Like A Lady” to change things up, and his performance was exceptionally impressive. A highlight of the night was Arnel Pineda giving high fives to the people sitting in the first row as well as signing fans autographs.

Overall, the Toto and Journey concert was a night of pure rock and roll bliss. Both bands put on a show that was both polished and raw, with each song building upon the excitement of the last. If you’re a fan of classic rock, seeing these two iconic bands live is an absolute must.

  1. The “spectacular performance” was essentially Toto’s doing and the fact that this band “opened” for Journey is the pinnacle of irony! The latter’s material simply cannot be compared to the former’s: it is weaker to say the least and this was highlighted by this opportunity to hear it right after Toto had played. Journey’s repertoire is ordinary at best, I felt like I had been listening to the same song (and the same intent- and structureless guitar solos!) for thirty minutes during the first part of their show. Pure loud and uninspired fast food music served to the masses and coated in overabundant visual and lighting effects (but I was there for the music)… They can count themselves immensely lucky to have been featured with Toto, a legendary rock band if there is one, who has accumulated numerous impressive and incomparable credentials during its career (I assume you know them). And the guys at the sound desk obviously didn’t know Toto’s repertoire as they were totally unable to showcase all the refined musical details featured in their songs (and treated their music like a grotesque hip hop acompaniment). But Toto was still worth the admission price!
