The band's Greatest Hits album is certified 15 times platinum, bringing Journey into the elite club of diamond-certified album holders. Journey was awarded the prestigious Legend of Live Award at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards in honour of the band's significant and lasting contributions to live music and the touring business, and to acknowledge its commitment to their fans and the art of performing live. The 2011 Eclipse World Tour was one of the band's most successful tours, drawing nearly a million fans, which ranked it in the top 15 tours of the year. The year 2011 also marked the 30th anniversary of the band's seminal anthem, Don't Stop Believin', with the title song being honoured as the top-selling digital classic rock song in history by Nielsen SoundScan. The group received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005. For more information, visit

Pat Benatar featuring Neil Giraldo changed the face of music forever when their debut album, In the Heat of the Night, exploded in 1979. Benatar emerged fearless, fighting and forging a path for future female rock stars around the world. With Giraldo's innovative vision creating the signature "Benatar" sound, hits like Heartbreaker, Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Love Is A Battlefield and We Belong led to platinum album after platinum album. Benatar won an unprecedented four consecutive GRAMMY® Awards, as well as three American Music Awards, establishing her as one of America's leading female rock vocalists. With more than 30 million albums sold and 19 top 40 singles to their name, Benatar and Giraldo remain a rock 'n' roll powerhouse today, still selling out concerts and wowing audiences after more than three decades of making music together.

With trademark red leather pants and bandanas to match their huge rock sound and high-energy live shows, Loverboy has sold more than 10 million albums and earned multi-platinum plaques for albums such as their self-titled debut LP, Get Lucky, Keep It Up and Lovin' Every Minute of It. The string of hits includes the band's smash anthem Working for the Weekend, as well as Hot Girls in Love, Turn Me Loose, and Lovin' Every Minute of It. Loverboy's continued pop culture relevance is alive and well in 2012, with recent references to the band in episodes of NBC's hit show 30 Rock and Comedy Network's popular Regular Show.

Members of Journey attended the premiere of Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey, a new documentary that tells the real life rock 'n' roll fairytale story of Arnel Pineda, who was discovered on YouTube and became the band's new lead singer. Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey, a film by director and producer Ramona S. Diaz, is a rare behind-the-scenes look at Pineda's early life struggles and the challenges involved in becoming the front man for one of America's most beloved rock groups.
