Try looking at it from another angle Paulie.
I find it quite uplifting that people want to see the latest Asia cd in their local store, if it is on sale in store and visible then there has to be the chance of an impulse buy and if it gets people talking .....
Likewise if Asia were to play locally then many friends and family could be persuaded to attend the concert, which has to be a good thing. Obviously many of the people who frequent this website are prepared to go the extra mile to see their heroes but I think it is more satisfying when you meet people that you know and you can tell them how big a fan that you are.
The bottom line is :- people WANT Asia.

So true, Vid.  And as disappointed as I am that the band won't be playing locally, ultimately, I understand that it's a business decision.  It certainly doesn't make sense to lose money on certain venues - no business can survive that way!  I am quite certain that there are expenses involved that we can't even imagine.  So, that being said - yes, I am very sad that Asia won't be in Chi-town or Milwaukee.  But certainly, Cleveland or Atlanta are not the furthest I've traveled to see them, either.  If I can swing it from a work/time/financial standpoint, I'll travel again!  It's worth it, in my mind - I look at it as a treat for me!  Hopefully, at some point, the climate will make it possible for JW to return to Chicago again (solo, or with Asia, or whatever!!).  I'm just thrilled to have access to such amazing music to help make my world a better place!

Maybe we should start a topic for the Cleveland show and get a potential roll-call on who might be going.

BTW Don't overlook the role casinos have had in recent years on the touring industry. It's very hard these days for a lot of the local summer festivals and outdoor venues in my neck of the woods to get quality acts because they can't compete with what the local casino is paying to some bands. Not saying or even implying that this had anything to do with the lack of a Chicago date, just throwing it out there.

I traded some vacation days and did a little Calendar Shuffle. I'll be grooving to Asia in Ridgefield, Syracuse, Cleveland, Rochester, L.A., Anaheim, Wendover and Sparks! I'm heading to the casinos in CT a few days before Ridgefield so I'm available for gatherings before the big show!
