News: Asia's new album 'The Omega' and tour

While my own interests in this project are rather weak, I suspect many readers of this weblog would be quite keen on this information. Turns out the would-be 'Prog' supergroup Asia is going to be releasing a new album this spring entitled "The Omega". John Wetton, Geof Downes, Steve Howe and Carl Palmer promise that the album will be full of songs with positive upbeat messages. If this sounds like a good idea to you, check out the link below. If you live in Europe, you may want to see the band on tour starting late-April. Here are the dates for the upcoming tour announced so far:

Apr. 21 - Helsinki, Finland - House of Culture
Apr. 22 - Moscow, Russia - B1 Club
Apr. 24 - Rome, Italy - Auditorium
Apr. 26 - Prague, Czech Republic - Lidovy dum Kbely

ASIA - The Omega and the Tour | ACED Magazine:
“We are embarking on our European tour around the middle of April, then straight in to Japan for the middle of May” says Downes. “It's going to be fun working out the new set list because obviously we have another album under our belt now with Omega.”
