Wetton-Downes’ iCon plays London's historic St. Mary-Le-Bow Church on 30th January, 2009; the intimate live performance will be filmed for DVD.

The concert will feature new material from their upcoming all-new third album. This is a unique opportunity for 200 people to see the band in such a personal and celebrated setting; each will also have an opportunity to meet and greet the performers and will receive a special, personalized edition of the new CD, and a pre-release version of the DVD resulting from the performance, after completion.

Fans and critics alike have clamoured for more from John Wetton and Geoffrey Downes, whose songwriting formed much of the fabric of 2008’s successful Asia reunion release, Phoenix. They are happy to oblige with this third iCon album and supporting dates. Live performance has become a special treat for fans and the band is pleased to announce the filming of this live DVD to commemorate the release of the third album and celebrate their musical beginnings. Both Mr. Wetton and Mr. Downes began their musical careers with the Church of England and are delighted to perform in one of London’s historic, iconic churches, performing for an unusually small and intimate audience.



OK so it's Asia related :P

Classic AOR, hitmaking band Asia Featuring John Payne is slated to perform at The Canyon Club, 28912 Roadside Dr. in Agoura Hills, California on November 14. 9PM start time. Admission: $32.50. Tickets for the event are available at all Ticketmaster locations and at http://www.ticketmaster.com. Asia Featuring John Payne will perform many of the hit songs plus new material from their upcoming CD release Architect of Time.

John Payne replaced vocalist/bassist John Wetton as the front man of the supergroup Asia in 1992 at the invitation of keyboardist Geoff Downes. Asia extensively toured the world for the next 14 years performing new classics and old favorites. With John Payne fronting the band, Asia released 8 stunning studio albums and several live recordings.

In 2006, Geoff Downes left the band to reform the 1982 line up for their 25th anniversary. On the 9th of May 2006, John Payne, Geoff Downes, John Wetton, Carl Palmer and Steve Howe contractually agreed that John Payne would continue his 14 year legacy with Asia as ”Asia Featuring John Payne”.




Asia Featuring John Payne have commenced touring in North America and a new studio album, Architect Of Time is planned for release in late 2009.

Asia Featuring John Payne Member Bios

Guitarist Guthrie Govan joined as Asia's official guitarist in 1999 and remained with Asia Featuring John Payne beginning in 2006. His stunning guitar playing is featured on the Asia albums, Aura, America, Silent Nation and Asia Featuring John Payne EXTENDED VERSIONS. His performances both live and in the studio show him to be a truly world class guitarist.

Drummer Jay Schellen joined as Asia's premiere drummer in 2005, toured in Europe with the band and recording the album Asia Featuring John Payne EXTENDED VERSIONS for Sony in 2006 when he remained with Asia Featuring John Payne. Before joining Asia, Jay played drums for Hurricane, Unruly Child, Badfinger and Conspiracy with Chris Squire from Yes.

Keyboardist Erik Norlander is the most recent addition to Asia Featuring John Payne, joining the group in November of 2007. Erik's evocative synthesizer technique is reminiscent of the legendary Rick Wakeman, Keith Emerson and Jon Lord while still very unique made him an obvious choice for the band. His works include over 25 releases with Lana Lane, Rocket Scientists and solo titles.

Vocalist/bassist John Payne fronted Asia for 14 years replacing John Wetton in 1992. 8 studio albums and 6 live albums followed including extensive world touring with the band. In 2006, John formed "Asia Featuring John Payne" and is performing shows with his current lineup. Previous to Asia, John sang with Roger Daltrey, CCCP, ELO Part 2 and more recently GPS plus being chosen as the Parson in Jeff Wayne’s The War Of The Worlds stadium tour.

For those of us who don't own MP3 devices, it's like a compact disc but bigger.
