Journey, The Doobie Brothers and Dave Mason rocked The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands on Saturday May 21!
The Australian singer songwriter Dave Mason, playing the hit from 1977 “we just disagree”, yes the hit from 1977, that is almost 40 years ago…still performing. WOW! A true musician! Dave Mason showed his love of music as he performed on stage. That is what it’s about.
Next comes a band that has been performing for five decades, selling over 40 million albums in their music career, The Doobie Brothers.
The stage was filled with original members, singing hits such as “black water” pumping energy in to the crowd and bringing them to their feet. Doobie Brothers set the mood for Journey to hit the stage.
For years after being a HUGE Journey fan, I was hesitant to see the new singer perform with the band. About 21 years ago, I am so aging myself; I got to see Steve Perry with Journey perform in concert.
I was very impressed that his voice very closely mirrored Steve Perry’s. Here this band, like the others, has been going strong since 1973, and still get up and blow the sold out crowd away. If you were not at this concert you missed a great performance. Singing hits from Open Arms to Wheel in the sky to Faithfully to Don’t Stop Believing to Be Good to yourself, pleasing every bit of the crowd there. The age spread was quite wide at this event. Journey had people dancing in the aisles! How great is that!
It blows my mind to see artists that have been performing since before I was born and still rocking sold out crowds. I often wonder what our kids will have to see in 20-30 years at the Pavilion. What artists out today will still have what our generation has been graced with.
