Frank Bell - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

2018 Tour With Journey

"We have in 2006 and it was such a great experience and the audiences loved it. We've been threatening to do it ever since. And this is the first time that our schedules lined up and we were able to do it together. So you know it worked out a treat. So that's gonna be a blast. So many songs that everyone knows. It really makes it a great night."

Setlist/Promoting The Catalogue

"Well you have to do the hot chestnuts. You know in our case you have to do PSSOM, Hysteria, Photograph, Love Bites. There's a list of them and you do that and then whatever's left, you have to divide it up and you go OK. We've got a new album out, we're gonna do three new songs maybe. You don't wanna bore people with stuff they don't know."

"You try and do that, but in our case because we just released our whole catalogue digitally, we're gonna be promoting basically the whole thing. So I think we're gonna have to revolve it around a little bit. And kind of do the odd song from back in the day from different albums. You know stuff off Pyromania and Adrenalize, whatever. You know things that we don't normally do. But we'll have a slot for it yeah."
