MANILA, Philippines -- The American rock band Journey is planning to return to the country next year for a concert, according to the group's Filipino lead vocalist Arnel Pineda.

"Hopefully by March. Hindi ko pa pwedeng sabihin ang date. But we are working on it. Sana ay matuloy," Pineda revealed on "Sarah G Live" on Sunday.

Aside from Manila, Journey is also set to tour Australia and Japan.

"'Yung Australia show namin halos lahat sold out na ...so it's great, we are doing great," Pineda said.

Journey first performed in Manila with Pineda in March 2009 at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds.

Pineda just arrived in the country from the band's 2012 US concert tour where they performed in 40 states.

"Pretty successful 'yung tour. I think mga 95% ng shows namin sold out so mabait si Lord. God is great," Pineda said.
