<Koogles is right of course, one can't look a gift horse in the mouth after all these years. At least the group is playing their music again when so many of our heroes: Boston, VH, Styx , Kansas and others are either doing very little or are playing Rib Festivals and County Fairs.>

I think you'll find that Styx and especially Kansas have played way more shows in the last 5 or 10 years than Journey has. Kansas have been on the road to support their last album for almost a year already and their current tour takes them up to August. Both Styx and Kansas have been to Europe recently and Kansas just got back from Japan. Two members also recorded excellent solo projects on their days off from touring.
Don't get me wrong, I like Journey as much as the next man and 'Arrival' is as close to an AOR classic as we'll probably get this year, but if they'd had half the work ethic that Kansas & Styx have they wouldn't have sat around doing nothing for 10 years. Do Rib Festivals and Country Fairs not count as "playing their music again"? Show me a band of over 50's who play as many shows as Kansas, and I'll show my arse on stage at this years Gods!

Take care,
P.S. The production on Arrival is excellent, the 'classic' Escape however has no bottom end!
