- Fantasia- Live in Tokyo
Eagle Vision To Release Fantasia: Asia Live In Tokyo on DVD Oct. 2
Superstar Band Plays Material from Yes, Asia, ELP, King Crimson & More In Two Hour 18-Song Set
New York, NY (September 20, 2007)—The original Asia (Yes guitarist Steve Howe, Buggles keyboardist Geoff Downes, King Crimson vocalist/guitarist John Wetton and Emerson, Lake & Palmer drummer Carol Palmer) reunited after 24 years, not only to perform material from their ‘80s Asia albums, but to resurrect beloved material from their former bands. The result was captured earlier this year on the Fantasia: Asia Live In Tokyo 2-CD package (Eagle Records). Now comes its visual complement, a single-disc two hour, 36-minute DVD (Eagle Vision) featuring 18 songs, and, as a bonus, a 40 minute interview with all four band members.
Asia sold 15 million copies of its self-titled 1982 debut album. Combining its progressive rock chops with a flair for melodic pop, it found its audience immediately. Subsequent albums included Alpha (1983) and Astra (1985) before personnel changes took the band to different directions in the ‘90s. The reunion tour of the original Asia lineup took Howe/Downes/Wetton/Palmer successfully through the U.S. and England in 2006. It led to a full-blown world tour in 2007 in celebration of their 25th Anniversary. The Tokyo show documented on both the Fantasia 2-CD and now the DVD took place in March ’07.
