Re: Asia


i can't help but think of that South Park where Cartman gets the entire US Congress to sing "Heat of the Moment" so he can sell and experiment on unborn fetuses to save Kenny.

hilarious

Re: Asia


I saw them in the spring of '82.
It was the only tour they ever did as far as I know,unless of course,I don't know.
Have they been together making albums and touring through the years since then?

Re: Asia


Carl Palmer BABY!!!! Phenomenal drummer and a big inspiration for me as a drummer. Should be a great show. Give us a review after the show...

John - I don't know what they've been up to in recent years... I know that there have been a few different musicians that have rotated through the lineup. According to the official Asia website, their last record was in 2000. In looking at that site, I didn't know they ever made that many albums. Apparently there are 10 albums out there...

Re: Asia


I remember seeing them back in like '82 or '83, up on Cape Cod. It was a few weeks after I saw Men At Work and before Pat Benatar. :lol That was a fun summer.

I think that Olivia Newton John song "Physical" was big back then too. Ooohhhh... I had a crush on her, boy! :p

This is their website.

They've been making music.

What's next? A "Boston" reunion tour? emoticon

Have a fun time. My first radio jobs were when they had their big hits.

Me too. I'm sure you're familiar with "Tank"?
It's the only time I've ever seen Carl Palmer live too. I wanted to see him with ELP,but I think around that time it was still ELP,but Cozy Powell instead of C. Palmer.
Not sure if that was because of Asia,or even if it was the same exact time,but I know it was around that time.

Anyway,they're coming to Alantic City in August,so maybe I'll go. :)
