Classic rock comes to town: Journey at Amway Arena Orlando, REO Speedwagon / Styx at Ford Amp Tampa

"Don't stop, believing — hold on to the feeyayaling!"

"'Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore, I've forgotten what I started fighting for! And if I have to crawl upon the floor, come crashing through your door, baby, I cant fight this feeling anymore!"

"Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me!" (Think of Cartman singing it. Makes it twice as great.)

All right, enough of that. Just wanted to introduce two concert announcements I received over the weekend about two upcoming shows featuring '70s classic rock bands known for their epic power balladry.

Journey (the current incarnation pictured at right, in case you didn't recognize) stops at the Amway Arena in Orlando Wed., Sept. 23, with Night Ranger to open. Tickets are $126, $66 and $36, and go on sale this Sat., July 18 at 10 a.m.

And the "Cant Stop Rockin' Tour 2009" with REO Speedwagon and Styx (also featuring special guest opener Night Ranger) play a pavilion only Ford Amphitheatre Fri., Oct. 30. The reserved seat tickets are $59.50, $39.50, $29.50 and $19.50, with four-packs available for $60. Sales this Sat., July 18 at 10 a.m.
