JOURNEY AND TOTO ROCKED

I don't owe what folks are listening to? The comments made are not inline of what I experienced. ToTo was extremely good. Joseph Williams is an ultra good tenor, he can belt out any of the hits Very energetic and Tight, Steve Lukathur absolutely amazing. All the band did a number on every song- Just Great Journey was just Fantastic-- Neal Sch0n was well worth the price as always - Arnal nailed the vocals. - All around Great - Both Superb Bands I mean what did U expect I loved every song played -- I True Joy! I'll go again P

CRYPTO.COM SHOW WAS AWESOME ALL AROUND! TOTO & JOURNEY!

Toto was as awesome as I expected them to be! The band is amazing! Journey also was great! Yes Arnel is no Steve Perry but he sure as heck could reach those notes as best he can! Try singing like that every two days and see your vocal chords tear. Proud of him! It was great to see Neil play live (one of the best guitar players ever for me) and Dean on drums!!!! His voice! i was blown away. Everyone that night killed it. Thanks for a very wonderful show! Crypto.com arenas sound system was damn good! Crowd was super lively, singing in, and excited the entire night! Got to see 2 of the greatest bands play.. what more could I have asked for! šŸ¤˜šŸ»

AWESOME

The show was great. Both bands had high energy and seemed to enjoy what they do.

5.0 star rating Mike from Tampa, Florida

AS EXPECTED

We all need to take advantage of seeing bands that can perform LIVE like these bandsā€¦ while we can! No real tricksā€¦ just solid singing and playing. From my seatā€¦ all was fine. Both bands. Both of the bandsā€¦ like others from the 70ā€™s and 80ā€™sā€¦ have experienced lots of personnel changesā€¦. I think itā€™s kinda sad when I hear folks negatively blasting a band, because the lineup is not like ā€˜beforeā€™ā€¦.. Almost none of the bands..( or just about anything else for that matter)ā€¦ is like it used to be. I miss Jeff Porcaro, Mike Porcaro, and Bobby Kimballā€¦. Butā€¦ Toto sounded great!ā€¦. Same goes for Ross Valory, Steve Perry and Steve Smith!! Not to mention Greg Rollie and Aynsley Dunbar!!.. Butā€¦ from my seat Journey sounded great as well. I miss LedZeppelinā€¦. But I am glad there are bands like Greta Van Fleet to supply some energy to music of that genreā€¦. Just like picking a color.. a carā€¦ or clothes.. you can be influenced, but it is still a matter of your gut feelingā€¦ your taste.

5.0 star rating A.Wood from Tampa, Florida

AWESOME

Both Toto and Journey were great. I'm not sure what the bad reviews are about because it's one of the better shows I have seen in a long time. No theatrics needed just awesome music!!!

4.0 star rating Chad from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

JOURNEY ROCKED!

While I will agree with some of the others that the sound quality was off, Arnel made up for it with high energy and great vocals. The set list included many of their iconic hits and featured a couple of new songs which I wasnā€™t familiar with. Overall a great show, would have been five stars had the sound quality been better.

3.0 star rating Todd H Forry from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

JOURNEY? IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED THE NEIL SCHON SHOW!

Journey was a former shell of what they were. The singer was great but you could tell he was just being pushed out of the way by the "look at me" guitar playing of Neil Schon. Their sound was absolutely horrible with the blasting almost heavy metal guitar and a solo after every single song. Jonathan Cain spent more time playing rhythm guitar than the keyboards and they had a second keyboard player with them. Sorry, but this is not the Journey I remember. The setlist was filled with all the hits, so thankfully there was some good to this. We were lucky and got free tickets which dampened the sting a bit more than if I had to pay the $89.50 which some people paid. Sorry Journey, but it might be time to hang it up. Toto on the other hand was amazing. The sound was incredibly balanced and everyone in the band looked they were having a great time.

3.0 star rating Deb from Albany, New York

TOTO WAS AWESOME!

Let me start by saying that Toto was incredibly awesome and the sound was amazing! Journey on the other hand was disappointing! The lead singer could not hold the long runs in the songs and frequently had to take breaths in between to get through the run:(. At times he even sounded off key. The song set was amazing and all the popular songs were sung. Neil Schon did a nice job on the guitar but for some reason he was the only one that came through clear in the sound system??? They tried and we still had an amazing time but unless theyā€™re going to really start training for a concert again ā€“ it may be the time to hang it up:(

3.0 star rating Heather from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

ARNEL'S VOCAL CHORDS NEED A BREAK!

The entire show I felt his mic was either cutting out or he was. At times he sounded flat. The band was great and I think they amped up the band sound to mask the truth that Arnel's been pushing it too much for too long. I lost saw them perform at Summerfest and the vocals were spot on. Time to gargle some salt water and see an ENT Doc!

3.0 star rating Angie from St. Louis, MO

5 STARS FOR TOTO, 3 STARS FOR JOURNEY

Toto was amazing! Better than we could have ever expected. Their vocals were spot on, the sound, the musical talent, etc. was top notch. Would pay to see them again and again! Journey was "ok". They played all the hits, but the sound was horrible. Not sure what was going on, but it was super disappointing. Sound guy needs to be fired.

3.0 star rating Journey Fan from St. Louis, Missouri

JOURNEY SOUND IMPROVEMENT

Not sure if it was the sound system, mic or vocals not reaching the notes but something was definitely off. I have seen Journey in the last 10 years and they were amazing compared to what I recently saw.

3.0 star rating Gregg from Seattle, Washington

JOURNEY-PREDICTABLE. TOTO...TOTO...STOLE THE SHOW.

Took my two adult kids to this as I wanted them to experience Journey. What a great surprise. Toto came out and kicked ass. Sound was good even though we were in the rafters, and the musicianship was top notch. Every song was fantastic and most of the show was a sing-a-long. My kids kept saying they were so surprised how great this concert was. Then, out came Journey. Right off the bat, oit was evident that the sound team had a different idea of what great sound was, since the volume was lower and you could barely hear Arnel as he tried to live up to Steve Perry's legend. I assumed they would dial it in as the show progressed, but they never did. Sound was barely passable from start to finish and the show was so predictable. they played the hits, most of which are still great, but are really not something you need to see in person. Highlights of the show were Neil Shons guitar work, Dean Castronov's drumming (exceptional) and singing and the song "Wheel in the sky", which is truly GREAT in person.

3.0 star rating RICHARD H from Portland, Oregon

JOURNEY & TOTO

I really enjoyed Toto and loved the whole show. Journey came out and I was amazed to see how well they played. I am NO CRITIC but what was up with the sound ?? Toto sounded fantastic and Journey was very good but the sound was off. It was just nice to get out and enjoy a show with my Portland Peeps. I would have 5 Stared this whole thing but sound was way off. The Portland D J was also very good and he had a great sound LOL

A JOURNEY NOT WORTH REPEATING

Although journeys music is absolutely classic, tonightā€˜s concert was disappointing! Great energy, but the sound quality was AWFUL. We couldnā€™t clearly hear a single word sung. It was a muffled mess.

2.0 star rating John Biondi from Bridgewater, NJ

DISAPPOINTED

This concert was a Christmas gift to my daughter. It was her idea to go see Journey. We saw them last time around at the Rock as well. Firstly, what happened to Billy Idol? Not that Toto didn't sound great and I thoroughly enjoyed their 4 songs that I knew. They were very tight, in a good way. The sound last night stunk! From the very first lyrics that Arnel Pineda sang, his vocals were awful. His voice sounded like he had been overtaxed and was getting sick. Ironically, plugging my ears with my fingers made his voice sound better, and much clearer. PLUGGING MY EARS MADE IT BETTER! I remember thinking to myself, "Well, I guess this is the last time I will ever see them in concert." Deen Castronovo and Jason Derlatka both sang tunes and their vocals were spot on. Get Steve Perry, do one final tour, or even just a pay-per-view, and cash out. And get that guitar out of Jason Cain's hands. (scoffs) Disappointed!

JOURNEY CONCERT

Wanted to hear the young man singā€¦ā€¦ Nothing but loud drums and guitar playing over the voices. Something wrong with Sound system. Toto much better

2.0 star rating from Detroit, Michigan

TERRIBLE SOUND!

Toto was way better than I expected! They have evolved through the recent years and really rocked! A mix of jazz, blues and rock and a stage full of talented musicians. Journey ,on the other hand, sounded terrible. It was very disappointing. Their sound was way off. There were times when you couldnā€™t even hear the singing. No encoreā€¦.a very short show

2.0 star rating Steve B from Manchester NH

NOT WORTH THE MONEY

Toto rocked it! Journeys mix was horrible could not hear Arnel at all and it was pbvious he was having trouble hearing himself. A better mix would have made a much better show. SNHU Arena

TOTO WAS GREAT DISAPPOINTED IN JOURNEY

Was really looking forward to this concert even if Billy Idol was replaced by Toto. Very disappointed by Journey the sound quality was really bad!

2.0 star rating Darren Day from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

THANK GOD FOR TOTO

Journey sound was loud and muddled, and when the vocals were heard they were out of tune. Just the opposite of opener Toto, whose 10 song was tight set sounded great, and showed what a real innovative rock band should look and sound like.

2.0 star rating Cheri & Spring from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

JOURNEY IS OVER

My friend and I were looking forward to this concert for quite some time. Toto was a great opening act. When Journey took the stage, we were looking forward to an amazing concert. Instead, it had an overwhelming awkward feeling to it, like we stepped into a room while people were arguing but were now playing nice for their guests. The lead singer was constantly drowned out by the band. And the guitar solo's....enough already! We get it, you were an original band member, you worked with Steve Perry, you are in control now! Very disappointing.

2.0 star rating Dave from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

NOT WORTH THE MONEY

Would have to agree with most of the other review. Toto was a better show due to being able to actually hear the singers. Half the time we were unable to even hear what was being sung by Journey due to the overwhelming guitar volume.

2.0 star rating Owen from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

TOTO'S SOUND MIX WAS GREAT, JOURNEY'S WASN'T.

Toto started the night off and sounded very tight. Lead singer sounded just like the albums and the guitar sounded beautiful. Everything was super tight. You could hear the distinct separation between the instruments and the mix was on point. I like Toto, but I came here mainly for Journey. Journey did not sound so good. They had great-looking graphics and visual effects but their sound mix was god-awful. I couldn't hear the separation between any of the instruments. The singing was overpowering and often imprecise. It sounded like Arnel was simply yelling a lot of the notes into a mix loaded with reverb, leading to a complete loss of detail. Neal Schon's solos and rhythm guitar playing were too quiet as well, and I often couldn't hear them over the rest of the band. He didn't play that well either, with his solos sounding uninspired and often muddy. I was impressed by Toto but disappointed by Journey. Hopefully they can fix the horrible sound-mix in the future.

2.0 star rating Jim from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

HORRIBLE SOUND

I was disappointed in the concert. The sound engineer should be fired. It was the worst sound mixing Iā€™ve ever heard indoors. Singer mic and guitar were either cutting out or too low. It was also too loud. Over 110db peak at my seats. Also donā€™t understand why the two new guys sang songs. And why was donā€™t stop believing 3rd in the set? Should have been the encore which they didnā€™t do.

2.0 star rating A disappointed fan from Central Illinois

TOTO WAS AMAZING

Truthfully... Toto had an outstanding performance. Great harmonies, solid instrumentation, excellent overall sound quality... they did not disappoint, and were actually better than expected. Not the case for Journey... the mix was horrible... guitar was muted the entire show... Neil's solos could not be heard - period. Vocals - well, adequate, but nothing worth mentioning. Jonathon Cain was the highpoint... the man can still play. But they really need to fire their soundtrack, assuming the lousy mix wasn't intentional... hiding something perhaps? Moving forward, I'll get my Journey fix when Resurrection is in the area.

STUCK IN THE 80'S

Well..$200 later..light show was the star tonight..Toto was entertaining and my old friends Journey..we'll a treat but ..my last show...I'm sad ..always remember The warehouse in New Orleans in 1985 with Perry's leadership ..thanks for all the past great shows guys!! .

TOTO 4 STAR, JOURNEY 1 STAR

Toto started the night sounding great. Was looking forward to Journey and was totally disappointed. It is clear Schon is running the show. The mixing was focus on hearing the musicians (especially Schon) at the expense of the vocals. Schon is very talented, but it seems he was featured in every song. Didnā€™t pay to see a Schon concert.

POOR SOUND QUALITY

The ToTo / Journey concert had the worst sound mix!! I was sitting in the 206 level with my husband on 2/23/22 and for the price we paid for tickets ,the sound quality should have been much better!!!! We could not even hear what the singers were singing!!!! Does NO ONE do a sound check anymore!

HORRIBLE - SAVE YOUR MONEY AND LISTEN TO CD'S!

Let me start by saying even though we are Journey fans since the early 80's, we originally bought these tickets to see Billy Idol; with that said, we still came and what a mistake! Neil Schon, who isn't even close to other guitar heros is obviously a narcissist as this show is all about is mediocre guitar playing. Even the newish singer knows this as he placates to Neil continually so he too isn't fired from the band like everybody else! The singer vocals are close to Steve Perry except he isn't Steve! His playing to the crowd was somewhere between awkward and clumsy. And then there is the song set which was horrible - I didn't recognize 5 songs (must be new) and then from their rich play list, they chose very mediocre songs a best. Going back to Neil Schon; this is obvious his attempt at staying relevant with a bunch of subservient paying hommage to Neil so they can still play in front of an audience. Save yourself time and money and get out you Captured or Escape CD's and you will enjoy it much better. Finally, how dare Neil give a shout out to Steve Perry prior to playing "Lights" after you have done him so wrong!

TOTO ACED IT, JOURNEY SOUND FEEDBACK AWFUL!!

Toto sounded fantastic, should have been the headliner. Journey comes out and you couldnā€™t hear one word from the lead singer. Guitar solos ended with ear numbing feedback, and didnā€™t sound good to boot! Left early because we couldnā€™t stand it!

1.0 star rating from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

DISAPPOINTING

Journey was on my bucket list to see for years. I should have thrown that bucket out. Listening to Toto I was excited for journey to come on, but after the first song I knew the night was shot. I've gone to a lot of concerts in my life, but I have to say the sound was the worst I've ever heard. Couldn't wait till the end to leave.

1.0 star rating Tia M from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

TOTO=5 STARS, JOURNEY= 1 STAR

Toto was a fantastic surpriseā€¦thankfully. They sounded great. We saw Journey years and it was a great show so I had high hopes. Utter disappointment this time. Lead singer canā€™t seem to sing anymore and he awkwardly runs around the stage nonstop. The best part of their set was their drummer, Deen Castronovo, lead singing one song. THAT GUY CAN SING-wish he would have done lead vocals for the whole show!!!!!

SOUND WAS TERRIBLE

3/17/22 show OKC - The sound was terrible, I thought they were having issues with equipment but after reading other reviews it turns out that the sound engineers suck! It sounded like one channel Was blown and they were cramming everything through the other remaining channel??ā€¦hate to say it, including backing tracks ā€¦ disappointing, oh well theyā€™re off to make another show and another $250k

So disappointed in this concert. Journey should have opened for Toto.

SOUND WAS POOR

Like many others was disappointed in the sound mix it was bad. Another complaint was that they didnā€™t have the jumbo screens working. Those sitting high up had a hard time seeing. Could not here much of the lyrics.

TOTO WAS GREAT, JOURNEY WAS TERRIBLE

Disappointing - took my two sons - seemed Arnel had no voice that night- He did a lot of ā€œaudience participationā€ sing alongsā€¦. Especially on the more difficult High note vocal partsā€¦. He was not so good and out of tune- guitar often was way too loud . Great stage and stage optics . Toto was great - wished they would have played ā€œPamelaā€
