Journey Tribute Trail By Fire, at Tally Ho Theater, Leesburg VA.

Journey Tribute – Trail By Fire

Trail By Fire, was born out of the hearts of five seasoned North Carolina – based musicians who have decided to answer that question. It is their vision to bring that 1996 tour to Journey fans across the country; to embrace the sound and visuals of the Steve Perry era of Journey. 

Prepare to let Trail By Fire, take you back to an early day when lighters were held high, and you couldn’t help, but sing along to such powerful choruses as Don’t Stop Believing’, Wheel in the Sky,  Lights, Separate Ways” and Faithfully.
