Tonight I enjoyed a concert by the band Journey at State Farm Center at the University of Illinois.  They are on their Freedom Tour (with very special guest Toto), celebrating their 50th anniversary.  I was late to the gig, so sadly I missed Toto and saw only Journey.

I recall seeing them at that same venue (then called Assembly Hall) in the early 1980s -- a quick Googling suggests it was likely May 1st, 1980.  Neal Schon clearly had a good time tonight laying down guitar, and Arnel Pineda is very impressive on lead vocals.  Good stuff.
