At their height of their respective fame in 1982, Journey and “Working For the Weekend” rockers Loverboy embarked on a tour together. Now, 30 years later, the two acts are hitting the road again, joined by Pat Benatar.

Kicking off July 21 in San Bernardino, CA, Journey’s tour alongside Loverboy and Benatar (who is joined by her longtime guitarist and husband Neil Giraldo) has nationwide amphitheater shows scheduled through mid October. The tour will go until December, and additional tour dates will be announced shortly. The full list of dates is below.

The current incarnation of Journey — featuring vocalist Arnel Pineda in place of original frontman Steve Perry — will celebrate the release of a new documentary about Pineda, Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey, next month when the film closes the San Francisco International Film Festival. Benatar has remained a constant touring presence, hitting the road on her own and with the likes of Blondie, REO Speedwagon and The Bangles. Loverboy, meanwhile, received inadvertent attention in 2011 through a memorable placement on TV’s 30 Rock, when a character (Pete Hornberger) reveals a secret past as Loverboy’s original bassist (hint: he was not).
