In his 2018 memoir, “Don’t Stop Believin’,” Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain describes the inspiration for one of the band’s biggest hits. “Somewhere in the hum and steady rocking on a tour bus heading to Saratoga Springs, I heard a tune in my dreams and thought of lyrics that woke me up,” he wrote. “Finding a pen in the dark, I scribbled the words on a napkin, something I’ve never done before. Highway run into the midnight sun.”

So opens “Faithfully,” the song that cemented Journey’s status as kings of the power ballad. Its music video, a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road, similarly elevated the status of the tour bus – as much a romantic symbol of touring as the stage itself.

Traveling like that is a potent fantasy, as anyone who got misty-eyed during the tour bus rendition of Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” in the movie “Almost Famous” knows. For the average person, it’s always been just that – a fantasy – at least until this summer, when COVID-19 put the concert industry in park.
