Asia’s ‘High Voltage’ live album out soon!

asia_liveRecorded on the 24th July 2010 at the inaugural High Voltage Festival in Victoria Park, London, this ASIA live CD / DVD captures the band, in the original line-up (Geoff Downes – keyboards, Steve Howe – guitars, Carl Palmer – drums, John Wetton – lead vocal and bass),  performing classic material from the 80s, plus songs from the first two albums of its reunion, “Phoenix” and “Omega”.

The show was performed to an enthusiastic festival crowd ready to hear the world’s biggest selling album of 1982 performed in its entirety for the first time in Europe.  In fact, this remains the only video document of the original line-up performing the debut album in full.

This live CD / DVD is an irreplaceable companion to the original studio album and the reunion that saw the original members of ASIA return to and stay at the top of their game, this time in front of a ‘home audience’.

asiaSince then of course, Steve Howe has stepped aside and Asia brought in Sam Coulson who went on to record the superb ‘Gravitas’ album, released in March. Our interview with John Wetton is here.

“High Voltage” will be released by Frontiers Records in a glossy digi-pack CD / DVD digi-pack format with Roger Dean artwork and the track listing includes:
Only Time Will Tell, Wildest Dreams, One Step Closer, An Extraordinary Life, Time Again, Cutting it Fine, Without You, I Believe, Here Comes the Feeling, Sole Survivor, Heat of the Moment
