‘Special Edition’ Asia box set release in March

Frontiers Records is set to release a special edition live CD/DVD box set from supergroup Asia.  SPIRIT OF THE NIGHT – THE PHOENIX TOUR LIVE IN CAMBRIDGE 2009 will be released in North America on March 8th.  The CD boasts 13 tracks, which includes a CD-only track exclusive, as well as a bonus track, while the DVD features 85 minutes of material, as well as bonus DVD content including an EPK and special footage of “In The Court Of The Crimson King” featuring King Crimson founding member Ian MacDonald.  Please see below for full track listings.  The CD and DVD will also be available for purchase separately.  In support of the new live release and their most recent studio album OMEGA (also released via Frontiers Records), Asia will tour in North America, kicking off dates at The State Theatre in Easton, PA on Thursday, April 28th.  Please see below for the tour itinerary.

Asia’s self-titled debut album was released in March, 1982, selling over 4 million copies in North America alone, upon its initial release.  The album featured several Top 10 singles including the ubiquitous “Heat Of The Moment.”  Asia’s supergroup line-up features keyboardist Geoff Downes (Yes, The Buggles), guitarist Steve Howe (Yes), drummer Carl Palmer (Emerson, Lake & Palmer) and bassist/vocalist John Wetton (UK, King Crimson). After 23 years apart, the four original band members reunited in 2006, and have toured globally, releasing two new studios albums since getting back together.
