ASIA confirm release of 2012 live set this summer

ASIA 2012 Lineup

Asia are to release a live 2 CD/DVD set this summer, recorded in the USA in 2012 before Steve Howe parted ways with the band.

Axis XXX Live In San Francisco MMXII will be available in CD, DVD and Blu-ray editions from the 3rd of July. The release comes after a broadcast of the show by AXS TV in the United States.

Says Asia frontman John Whetton: “It’s a journey through Asia’s history, from Alpha to Omega and more, in the beautiful setting of the Regency Ballroom, San Francisco, California.

“Much newer material is aired, plus the band’s vintage hit songs, performed by all four original members of Asia. It’s an unmissable treat for any fan, new or old.”

Steve Howe left Asia two months after Axis XXX was filmed to focus on his solo work and recording with Yes. He was replaced by Sam Coulson, who made his debut on Asia’s 14th album Gravitas.
