My OWN dreams that came true that night...
1- Seeing /ASIA\ perform onstage on the SAME bill with YES.
2- Seeing /ASIA\ and YES both play in *Philly*, a town with a legendary love for progressive rock.
3- Seeing Ian McDonald join John Wetton onstage to perform a KING CRIMSON song together. Whew!! That rapturous Philly crowd was like a soccer crowd in Brazil...LOUD with approval!! That performance (with complete flute solo & outro) of ITCOTCK blew me away!!
4- A film crew recorded the /ASIA\ set that night. Again - I couldn't BELIEVE this was happening while I witnessed it. My small moment of an /ASIA\ show (later) captured for an official /ASIA\ live release (SPIRIT OF THE NIGHT).
You can dream, WiltonCarpet.
I wish you luck. Good things, since that JW Fan Convention at the turn of the 2000s, never seem "impossible" anymore...
