Boise to Journey to Loverboy 

Saturday, Aug. 4, Idaho Center

Journey

Alex Solca

Journey

Most bands will be forgotten. And even the wildly successful ones will have the bulk of their catalogs vanish into obscurity. But sometimes a band will have one song so iconic, so unforgettable, that it transcends the band itself and becomes a part of the cultural consciousness. That's the case with Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," which is possibly the single-greatest power ballad of all time.

The biggest reason to see Journey in concert is the thrill from that opening piano riff, reaching into your pocket for a lighter and shouting every word so loud that the band is lost in the noise.

"Working for the Weekend," by Loverboy, isn't quite as powerful a tune, but it's still a good singalong. You can dig back to your '80s roots and belt out both this weekend at The Idaho Center.
