Asia Announces New U.S. Tour, Live DVD With Original Lineup

Frontiers Records

Asia‘s new lineup is heading to the United States for a fresh round of live dates in support of their latest album, 2014’s ‘Gravitas,’ while the band’s original members will next be seen in a DVD chronicling an appearance from their 2010 tour.

As we previously reported, guitarist Steve Howe opted to depart last year in order to focus on his solo career and membership in Yes. He’s since been replaced by new member Sam Coulson, who contributed to ‘Gravitas’ and has joined Asia for its current tour. The newly announced U.S. dates, which start in September and run through late October, will take the band cross-country on one of the more extensive American legs they’ve booked since their commercial peak in the ’80s.

Meanwhile, the band’s label Frontiers Records is planning an August release for ‘High Voltage,’ a DVD presenting the original Asia lineup’s appearance four years ago at the titular UK festival. The set list includes a complete performance of their hit 1982 debut LP, and is described by the record company as “an irreplaceable companion to the original studio album, and to the reunion that saw Asia return to and stay at the top of their game.”
