Multi-platinum-selling English supergroup ASIA announce the release, for the first time ever on vinyl, ASIA – FANTASIA, LIVE IN TOKYO 2007 as a 3LP set.
Recorded on Asia’s 25th anniversary 2007 world tour, and featuring the reformed original line-up, FANTASIA, LIVE IN TOKYO 2007 is to be issued on vinyl as a 3LP set with booklet, including band photos, and sleeve notes through BMG Records on 24th February 2023.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the band’s formation, this exciting 18-track live show from their 2007 world tour features the reformed original line-up pooling the talents of lead vocalist/bassist John Wetton (King Crimson), Steve Howe (guitars, Yes), Geoff Downes (keyboards, Yes and Buggles) and drummer Carl Palmer from Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
The setlist naturally focusses on their globally successful 1982 debut album Asia and features key tracks Only Time Will Tell, Sole Survivor and their anthem Heat Of The Moment along with select tracks from their second LP Alpha and one song each from the band members’ previous bands – Video Killed The Radio Star, Roundabout, Fanfare For The Common Man and The Court Of The Crimson King.
The album artwork is by legendary designer Roger Dean, who produced all the ASIA original album covers.
By simultaneously celebrating their debut album alongside the legacy of their foundational bands, the four band members crafted a standing testament to their collective impact on the world of music. Fantasia is a clear reminder of the legacy of this incredible band and the artistic pedigree of the four original members of ASIA.
