Journey Wanted Singer Inducted Into Rock Hall

Posted April 08, 2017

Steve Perry will reportedly perform with Journey at tonight's (April 7th) Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. That may have changed, according to the gossip site TMZ, which is reporting that Perry will be singing on at least one of the three songs Journey is slated to perform during the ceremony; either "Lights", "Separate Ways" or "Don't Stop Believin'".

When the induction was announced on December 20, Journey guitarist Neal Shon told Rolling Stone he has not been in regular contact with Perry, but was hoping he would perform with the band at the ceremony. A TMZ report Friday afternoon claimed Perry "will sing with the band at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony".

"We haven't spoken in years, physically". Harris suggested that this supposed jam ended when Rush finally got inducted a few years ago. That was going really well. "I'd love for him to come up and play but he knows that".
