Do any GBs know the source of this U-Tube video?  It appears to be off their debut tour or maybe Alpha.   I have the later concert footage with Pat Thrall, however I would love to get this DVD if it's available.

Thanks!

I believe this has been mentioned on a previous thread but I do not know where, I understand it was at Wembley 82, it was not released but was to be a promo/ publicity video, I would like to know the date as I went to one of the  Wembley shows, and the clothes do look familiar, hope I am reght, cheers, mike

It was Wembley, 1982. I know they filmed it to be a video for Sole Survivor but as John has said in past threads, the Asia album was what really sold, not so much the singles. In the end, Geffen never released it as they felt the single market off of that album had run its course. The first time I saw it was on You Tube as well. It's a great little treasure after all these years in the vault. Now if we can only pursuade John to dig out the Days Like These video in his basement and perhaps play it on a video screen behind Icon.

Thanks for the replies.  Sad, I was hoping this was just one song from a DVD release of the original tour. 

It's a great video.  I remember Johan mentioning the Sole Survivor clip, however I wasn't aware this was the actual video. 

I would much rather have this video on the DVD that came with the Ultimate Collection CD at Best Buy than the Wildest Dreams video.  Good song, bad video (war machines, stock footage and no Asia).
