Journey Revisited returns to 'take a wrecking ball to' the Monterey County Fair!

Seth Metoyer of the Examiner reviewed JR's blowout gig last year at the Monterey County Fair: "On Saturday night, a large crowd gathered to watch the very impressive Journey tribute band “Journey Revisited”. I’d first seen this band live back in 2013 at the Monterey County Fair. They blew the roof off, which is still off as a matter of fact."

In this year's Fair announcement, he wrote:
Journey Revisited blew the roof off of the Payton Garden Stage last year, and on Thursday, September 3rd they return to take a wrecking ball to the place. Reliving the glory days of the popular band Journey, Journey Revisited is the most authentic Journey experience you'll ever see as they cover greatest hits from 1978-1996. This concert lands on college night and college students can get in the gate for $5.00 after 5pm.



Show time is 7:30 pm and it's free with paid Fair Admission. Tickets: http://tinyurl.com/JRatMCF2015
