Well said Brian, and yes we get to see maybe more of the older bands here than you (wherever you are from), but for example I would kill to have The Gods show over here, or Damned Nation, Ten, Two Fires..the listgoes on and on play over here on tour.
And if music here in the states was judged on if it is good or not and what the "fans" think not some suit who is trying to strike oil with the flavor of the month and then trash the band neve giving them the same exposure again (ie: 80's, Alternative), we all worldwide would at some point catch these type bands..because they would be making a fair living and it would profit to go over seas. Look at Toto, the played only 8 shows in the US a few years back (saw the in Las Vegas) and the rest was outside the US because they are better received in other countries. So the arguement of waiting for bands is economics.
And yes many fans go to he shows as nostalgia, but as with the bands that were on CMC records only STYX Return to Paradise went Gold, but all the bands turned a profit with the tour...which many of the flavors of the month don't do.
In the end Journey will sell a respectable amount of records and profit from the tour as well.
