The rock band Journey has rescheduled its postponed Nov. 13concert at Moline's i wireless Center to Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013.

All tickets for the originally scheduled concert will be honored for the new show, and refunds will be available at point of purchase. Tickets ($39.50, $55, $75, $125) are available at the box office, Ticketmaster outlets, (800) 745-3000, or ticketmaster.com.

Five of the concerts on this tour -- also featuring Pat Benatar with Neil Giraldo, and Loverboy -- werepostponed earlier this month because Journey lead singer Arnel Pineda was diagnosed with severe laryngeal and esophageal inflammation.

Since its formation in 1973 in San Francisco, Journey has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold and platinum albums. The band's greatest-hits album is certified 15 times platinum, and Journey earned the "Legend of Live Award" at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards in honor of its significant and lasting contributions to live music and the touring business.

Journey's2011 Eclipse World Tour was one of the band's most successful tours ever, drawing nearly a million fans and ranked in the Top 15 Tours of the year. 2011 also marked the 30th anniversary of the band's anthem, "Don't Stop Believin'," which was honored as the top-selling digital classic-rock song in history by Nielsen SoundScan.
