ST. PAUL, Minn., May 27 (UPI) -- Fans at The Eels concert Sunday in St. Paul, Minn., were treated to a rare performance by former Journey frontman Steve Perry.

The 65-year-old musician last performed solo in 1995, and last performed with Journey in 1991. He has had health problems in recent years, but made a surprise appearance at the Fitzgerald Theater over the weekend.

The singer first took the stage to perform Eels song It's a Mother[expletive] with the band. The performance was met with thunderous applause, leading Eels frontman Mark Everett to joke, "They don't applaud like that for me! I guess I gotta disappear for 25 years!"

Perry and The Eels went on to perform Journey hits Open Arms and Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'.
