Journey Underage Drinkers
SORRY UNDERAGE KIDS, your days of getting hammered at Journey concerts are OVER!!!!!!  

At least in Chula Vista, CA ... where cops say the local PD is DOUBLING its patrol out of fear underage drinking will run rampant when the band takes the stage. 

For the record, no ... it's not still 1983. 

But seriously, the Chula Vista PD just issued the following release to the media:

"CVPD will be enforcing ZERO TOLERANCE for underage drinking and public intoxication at the Journey concert tonight at Sleep Train Amphitheatre. We will be doubling our enforcement efforts to combat underage drinking and public intoxication both during the concert and the pre-concert tailgating activities.

Underage drinkers will be cited and removed from the venue without a refund for their ticket. Officers will also be on the look out for excessive drinking that is disruptive and/or a safety concern. Intoxicated patrons will be denied access to the event and NO refunds will be given.
"

All this ... and Steve Perry isn't even with the band anymore ... BUT COULD YOU IMAGINE IF HE WAS!?!?!?!!?!

Meh, people HAVE to get drunk in order to be able to listen to 2 hours of that crap. The members of Journey are mere shells of their former selves. Their shows are just terrible these day and Arnel has absolutely ZERO stage presence. They should have hung it up when Steve Perry quit the band. Talk about beating a dead horse...

Chula Vista police need a reason to feel important...like when they give tickets on the 1st and 15th and say there isn't a quota. If Steve Perry was there they'd need medics for all the ladies fainting! I say bring the rootbeer in beer bottles and freak them out!

Cops are cracking down on underage drinkers at EVERY event here. I'm sure there will be many arrests this month at the Indy 500. We have to keep these criminals off the streets!

Don't think it has anything to do with Journey, has more to do with the summer festivals they tend to play. We go to them every summer, and see it all the time. Doesn't matter who's playing. It's the atmosphere, and I don't think having more cops around is going to stop it.

I get that this site and the posts that come up are written by mental midgets, and that the commentors are mostly youngsters, but there are laws we have to abide by, and underaged drinking is a good one. Too many kids who can't hadle being drunk cause too many accidents or become victims themselves. As a teen, I got high and drank and went to many concerts, some that I can't even remember, but I was very lucky and never got busted or had an accident. But there are a lot more people on the road these days. Too many chances to get in trouble. I'll probably get bashed by the kiddies out there by commenting on this, but oh well. Maybe these words will save a life.

The band should break up already.. Steve Perry made the band who they were. And they are trying to keep the band alive with the replacement singer.

He'll never be Steve Perry!
