Hi to all!

I'm flying tomorrow to Prague to watch our beloved band performing live on the 29th of May.
I had the chance to see Asia in Italy last year, but now they're back with their first album in 25 years..and what an album..the fantastic 'Phoenix' !
There was no way to miss that !
I hope I can meet a lot of Asia friends in Prague! If someone here at the forum is from Czech Republic, we can communicate via e-mail and meet before the show.
Lots of love, Gerry.
And yes..this is an EXTRAORDINARY LIFE !!
Go on the MIGHTY ASIA !

Yasu, Gerry. Have a safe trip and enjoy the band in top form, and tell us when you're back in Greece, if they played My Own Time.

ASIA ROCKED THE HOUSE DOWN IN PRAGUE !

What an awesome concert !
The band was flawless, the crowd ectstatic, the musicianship of the Fabulous 4 was out of this world.
Johan's voice was in great shape -crystal clear, emotional, rich and powewrful throughout the whole set. And what a performer..and his bass..simply bombastic!
Geoff was brilliant, especially his keyboard soloing during "Fanfare"' was out of this world.
Carl - still a monster of a drummer - so powerful and unique .
Steve proved again why he's one of the most charismatic guitarists in rock
All the band is on TOP FORM ! I think they are more tight than ever!
An unstoppable music force. So much energy and passion.
They were much better than last year in Italy.
It's hard to pick out highlights , but "Without You", '"Never Again", "The Heat Goes On", "Open Your Eyes", "Fanfare" and 'Sole Survivor" were simply out of this world. As for the most emotional moment, 'The Smile Has Left Your Eyes" just wins it for me.
I liked very much that videos were played on the video walls during the songs..they got you into the atmosphere of the song...During "Without You" I could'n t help but cry... The purple colours were just perfect to introduce you  "In The Court Of The Crimson King" and the brilliant images of Roger Dean fit perfectly with "Never Again".
All in all : Pure magic and a pure delight for eyes and ears - sound and vision.
Only complaint : During the encores the crowd went crazy and we screamed for more songs. And we were waiting for the electric version of 'Don't Cry"..But Asia did not come back to play it . WHY ??
It was such the enthusiasm in the hall, that the band could go and play 10 songs after "Sole Survivor"!!!
So, the only complaint is about 'Don't Cry".
Apart of that , I dare to say that this was THE BEST CONCERT IN MY ENTIRE LIFE..And I have seen a lot of artists  live, including Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Peter Gabriel etc...
Thanks so much John, Geoff, Steve and Carl !!!
It was worth the travel to Czech Republic
Lots of love
-Gerry / Athens, Greece.

This was the best concert in my life..but I'm still wondering why Asia did not play 'Ride Easy" and the anthem 'Don't Cry' which we all anticipated so much !
