PRETENDERS cross the bridge between punk, new wave and pop music like no other band, with genre-defining songs like "I'll Stand By You", "Back On The Chain Gang" and "Don't Get Me Wrong". The band has sold over 25 million albums and founder and leader Chrissie Hynde is one of contemporary music's greatest songwriters. Chrissie's 2015 memoir "Reckless: My Life As A Pretender", was hailed by The New York Times upon its release as "honest and distinctive… a love letter to rock and roll." After delivering 2016's unflinchingly head-strong "Alone" album (produced by the BLACK KEYS' Dan Auerbach), THE PRETENDERS continue to tour worldwide.

JOURNEY is one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, creating some of the best-known songs in modern music. Since the group's formation in 1973, the band has earned 19 top 40 singles and 25 gold and platinum albums and has sold nearly 100 million albums globally. Their "Greatest Hits" album is certified 15 times platinum, bringing JOURNEY into the elite club of diamond-certified award holders. The band continues to tour and record into the 21st century, performing concerts for millions of fans worldwide, and received the prestigious Billboard "Legends Of Live" touring award. 2018's massive co-headlining tour with DEF LEPPARD was the band's most successful tour to date, landing them in the Top 10 year-end touring chart with more than one million tickets sold. In 2017, JOURNEY was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. In March 2019, JOURNEY released a live DVD/CD set from its concert at the Budokan in Tokyo, featuring the first-ever performances of the band's "Escape" and "Frontiers" albums in their entireties. JOURNEY received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall Of Fame, and is the subject of the award-winning documentary "Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey".
