Take a journey back in time to see Journey with the Doobie Brothers at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Tinley Park August 13, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suits Midway Hotel!
Journey is a San Francisco rock band that hit it big with “Don’t Stop Believin,’” which was the bestselling song on the iTunes Top 200 in the twentieth century. “Escape,” the band’s first album, quickly reached Number 2 on the Billboard 200. Since then they have had two gold albums, eight multi-platinum albums and one diamond album. Ironically, they have only been nominated for one Grammy award and didn’t win. “Don’t Stop Believin’” has been heard in many movies and TV shows, including “The Sopranos,” “Family Guy” and “Glee.”
The Doobie Brothers have changed personnel so much over five decades, you will be surprised as to who shows up. They became the first sanctioned band by the Hells Angels, an odd honor. Their three most iconic hits are “Jesus is Just Alright With me,” “Old Black Water” and “Listen to the Music.” Their album “Minute by Minute” won a Grammy Award for Best Album.
The Hollywood Casino Amphitheater is located at 19100 Ridgeland Avenue in Tinley Park. For tickets to see Journey with the Doobie Brothers, go online to http://www.tinleyparkamphitheater.com/address/ and follow the prompts.
