DARIEN CENTER – Journey, one of the most popular arena rock bands of the 1980s, still has plenty of believers, even after going through a succession of lead singers in recent years.

Arnel Pineda is on his second world tour with the band and it has often been noted how surprisingly he sounds like former lead singer Steve Perry — the voice behind such hits as “Open Arms,” “Who’s Cryin’ Now,” “Separate Ways,” “Faithfully” and, of course, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” The latter, according to SoundScan, is the most downloaded song ever and it’s been used as a centerpiece in the first episode of Fox’s new fall series “Glee.”

The oft-told story of hour Pineda, singer from the Philippines came to fill Perry’s shoes goes something like this: Journey guitarist and founding member Neil Schon discovered Pineda singing Journey covers on the video-sharing Web site, YouTube.

The San Francisco band brought its latest tour to the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center on Saturday night, where staff photographer Mark Gutman captured the photographs at right.
