I recently bought tickets for two of the Asia gigs in England next year and have been lucky enough to get a front row seat at one of them. It’s years since I’ve been this dizzy about getting a seat ‘down the front’! I’ve had a permanent grin since – I look like I’ve got a coathanger in my mouth, some might say it’s an improvement.

By the way, in case any Guestbook regulars are wondering who this interloper is, maybe I should introduce myself, because I’d like to hang around this GB some more if there’s no objection ...? I’ve been an Asia fan since the beginning. I blame Geoff Downes. My seven-year-old heart fell in love with him in his Buggles days (must have been that shiny suit in the video) and when I heard he’d joined Asia, I had to check them out, which of course introduced me to the many delights of the music of JW. The rest, as they say, is history.

I’ve been loitering around the edges of the guestbook for a while; being a bit of a wallflower I was afraid to dive right in, but I felt a bit voyeuristic just watching all the fun and not taking part, so I’ve finally shed my inhibitions (no peeking, boys) and taken the plunge.

I hope you’ll all be gentle with me.

PS. I’m only posting this essay now to draw attention away from Highway Bill and his many bizarre postings today. He’s scaring me now. Is he OK? Does he need help? Maybe we should call someone.

PPS. I’m over the Geoff crush now. Like my mum said, it was just a phase.

welcome to the GB Sandie! also welcome to the 'Asia Rail Riders'. a term coined by my good buddy mikestune when you are front row. many a charter member, myself included.
 as to Highway Bill he is as harmless as a newborn kitten. and yes there are aliens here too.

Hi Sandie

Welcome - will you be going to the concert in Cardiff in April? - I will be there with my hubby (front row, middle!) - maybe we'll see you!  My first Asia gig was this year - front row again - didn't know what to expect, but taken by surprise and blown away!

Nice to have another UK lady on board (all the ladies and gents from all over - cheers Goddess & Aimie).  Look forward to more chat!

Hi Sandie <waving>

You'll be smiling forever because next year is so far away! I hope you have lots of fun at that show

Sandie, welcome! I am jealous - front row, excellent venue, what a great thing to look forward to! I've been as close to the front row as one can get, literally at the feet of Johan and Horace at the Indy show, surrounded by good friends G1, MK, Sammy, Rising Dragon and others, one of the greatest experiences ever! Enjoy!

Thank you for the welcome guys, I’m feelin’ the love already ...

Mags – haven’t got tickets for the Cardiff gig yet, only Brum and London so far, but will probably end up going there and some others too. Like Buxton, don’t they petrify teddy bears there?! (By the way, if you’re staying over in Cardiff, there’s a dodgy hotel I feel obliged to warn you about – I still have the mental scars from my stay there, and my boyfriend still has the physical ones ... But if I will stay in cheap hotels ... I guess you gets what you pay for!)

I’m digressing.

Thanks again for the warm glow everyone.

Thanks for the tip Sandie - fortunately I have a sister living in Cardiff and we have already booked B&B with her!

Hi Sandie, and welcome to the group. You will have a great time in the front row - it's always great to be able to see the band as well as hear them. We will expect a full report afterwards if you are so inclined!
