Jonathan Cain Confirms He Will Tour With Journey Despite Lawsuit

Jonathan Cain is for at least the second time in six years dispelling rumors that Journey is breaking up due to a dispute between himself and Neal Schon.
Cain confirmed on Tuesday that he will indeed be with the band next month when it launches its 2023 'Freedom' tour, celebrating Journey's 50th anniversary.
The Journey keyboardist since 1980 shared a photo Tuesday of himself and wife, Paula White-Cain, on a ski trip in Colorado.
"I feel very grateful and blessed to share this time on the slopes with my Baby before hitting the road with Journey," Cain wrote.
Schon filed a lawsuit against Cain last fall in a dispute over the band's finances. The guitarist and Journey founder Schon has repeatedly taken swipes at Cain via social media, and last week revealed that original Journey keyboardist/vocalist Gregg Rolie would be joining the band for its anniversary tour.
While Rolie's pending return cause some uncertainly among fans, it appears all three musicians plan to coexist on the tour, which launches February 4, following a two-night residency in Oklahoma.
Despite Schon's differences with Cain over the years, he has yet to suggest the keyboardist was going anywhere. (Schon and Cain are equal partners in Journey.)
Asked recently by one fan how he and Cain could go about the Journey tour amid their legal feud, Schon answered that both he and Cain would "Channel the great music. Honor it," as they have in the past.
Schon and Cain feuded publicly circa 2017, but eventually reconciled and wrote their 2021 studio album, Freedom, together. Both musicians have noted in the past that their personal and political differences go away when they are focused on music.
