Philippine Music: Journey Performs In Super Bowl XLIII

Arnel Pineda of Journey Performs in Super Bowl XLII

Arnel Pineda of Journey Performs in Super Bowl XLII

Well, Journey wasn’t the main attraction of the halftime show. That honor would go to Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band. However, Journey did perform for the pre-game concerts with the Philippines’ very own Arnel Pineda as the lead vocals for Journey.

Most Filipinos could care less about American Football, and could even care less about Super Bowl XLIII, but then for those who know a little bit about the NFL, the Super Bowl is the grand daddy of all American sports, and is probably the most watched sporting event in the United States, and is a sports event that is given so much hype and promotions.

And with Journey being included in its program, then it’s definitely a big step up for Journey to get some acclaim. Not that they need it. I mean – Journey has been known in the music industry for the longest time ever since Steve Perry was their former vocalist. But, of course, for newcomer Arnel Pineda it must be a big milestone for his career to perform in this kind of event.

Anyway, the Philippines still awaits news on when Arnel Pineda will convince his band mates in Journey to consider a trip to the Philippines for a concert. Come soon, Arnel. We’re waiting!

    Bad performance!!! I expect more from AP. Journey gave him the liberty to do stuff in the side but abuse his privileges buy showing up every week in various TV stations and having mini-concerts in small venues, he is nothing without Journey. He really sounds stressed out, Journey should re-evaluate his performance, because he cannot be sounding like that as the front man. I think he is overdoing him self. I just glad that he was not at the Half time, or every Filipino will be burying their heads underground with shame!

    • I totally agree with you. Arnel Pineda signed up with ABS-CBN, and you can find him hosting noon time shows. Very stupid if you ask me. I mean – you’re the lead singer of Journey. The world can be your oyster, and yet he’s dabbling on whatever in the local scene. I don’t know about that. I mean – it’s not like Snoop Dogg’s Fatherhood show, or Gene Simmon’s Family Values, or The Osbournes. You get the point. It just makes Arnel Pineda look cheap. But then, you know the saying, “You can take the guy out of the trailer park, but you can’t take the trailer park out of they guy.”
