Original line-up of prog rock supergroup on their 2010 Omega World Tour.
Asia's debut album exploded onto the music scene and was the biggest selling album in the world in 1982 and no.1 in the USA for 10 weeks. This "supergroup", featuring bassist/vocalist John Wetton, drummer Carl Palmer, keyboardist Geoff Downes, and guitarist Steve Howe, was the logical successor to their collective bands of the 70s - Yes, ELP, King Crimson, and The Buggles. Their latest critically acclaimed album, Omega, was released April 2010 and their UK Xmas dates are the culmination of a hugely successful 3-continent world tour. Enjoy an evening of exclusively Asia music, including many songs from the reunion albums.
"This is the REAL ASIA," says guitarist Steve Howe. "There have been other versions of the band, but this original line-up is the one that the public truly embraced. Since we only toured for a couple of years, it will be nice, finally, to play for audiences all over the world, many of whom never had a chance to see the group in concert."
