Journey Will Reportedly Headline Lollapalooza This Year


A new report is saying that Journey will headline Lollapalooza this year.

Journey are set to headline the 2021 edition of Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival, according to guitarist Neal Schon.

After predictably cancelling its 2020 event due to COVID-19 concerns, the festival’s website currently makes no mention of next year’s festival.

“I’m dying to get on stage again,” Schon told SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk show on Wednesday (December 30), as Blabbermouth reports, before going on to seemingly reveal that the festival – usually held in late July or early August – would be being held in April.

“We have our first date booked for Lollapalooza, and we’re headlining in Chicago,” Schon added. “And that’s supposedly in April.

“Hopefully that’ll not get pushed back, because the vaccine is finally here,” Schon continued. “And hopefully they start dispersing it very quickly so everybody can get back on their feet and can get out and hear music, ’cause that’s what heals the world, I think.”

Huh?! Seems hard to believe that Lolla will be happening sooner this year if at all! We'll just have to see.
