Journey's got a new beat for the rest of its tour -- the band kicked drummer Dean Castronovo to the curb after his arrest over the weekend ... but the guy filling in has a serious resume.

TMZ broke the story ... Castronovo was busted last weekend for an alleged domestic violence incident at his home in Oregon. It was his 2nd such arrest, and Journey -- currently in the middle of a tour -- decided to pull the rip chord.

The band announced veteran skins man Omar Hakim would take Castronovo's place immediately, starting with their Hollywood Bowl show on Saturday. It's unclear if Castronovo is out of the band permanently.

Deen Castronovo -- the current drumer for Journey -- was arrested for assault after an early morning domestic dispute ... TMZ has learned. 

Salem Oregon PD tells us they got called to a home ... which they believe was Castronovo's ... around 9 AM Sunday. Police entered the home and arrested him without incident. It's still unclear who else was involved in the incident.

Castronovo was booked for assault, coercion, and menacing. He's been released on bail. 

Castronovo was also arrested in Oregon in 2012 for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.

Journey is currently on tour and their next date is Saturday at the Hollywood Bowl. As for whether Castronovo will be playing drums -- no comment from the band's rep.

Journey Concert


Zero Underage Boozing Arrests

0515-journey-facebook-01The word "duh" has never been more appropriate ... because cops in Chula Vista say they didn't arrest one single underage drinker Thursday night at the Journey concert. 

It's unclear if the statistic was a result of the CRACKDOWN cops called for to prevent kids from boozing at the show ... or, more likely, there just aren't underage people hitting up Journey concerts to get wasted these days!! 

Officials did say there WAS a large number of people under 21 at the Sleep Train Ampitheatre last night ... so, whatever the case ... SUCCESS!! 



... Say Cops Stuck In 1983

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!?!?!?!!?!
