Grammy nominated rock musician John Parr has been confirmed as Special Guest for Journey on their UK tour dates in June. John had one of the biggest hits of the 80's with his iconic track 'St Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)'. He went on to have other hits including 'Naughty, Naughty', 'Restless Heart', 'Rock & Roll Mercenaries'
In the mid 80's (during Parr's massive World-wide success), The Pepsi Company and Jack Calmes Satellite TV Corporation wanted to try something new - a gig from London beamed live across America, Japan & Australia on the college Satellite Network. Parr was the featured act, having done two similar shows (one from the Olympic Stadium in Los Angeles where the flame was lit for a special performance of "St. Elmo's Fire", and was beamed live for Japan, and the New Year Christmas Show from London). The show was a great success, reaching almost 50-million people and making broadcast history for the network.
John has also performed the music to 9 Major Motion Pictures titles including '3 Men & A Baby', 'The Running Man', 'Near Dark' and of course 'St Elmo's Fire'.
