Supergroup ASIA will release a 10-CD box set, “The Official Live Bootlegs Volume 1”, on November 26. A digital album — also called “The Official Live Bootlegs Volume 1” — will feature a selection of 24 tracks taken from the full box set, out on the same day. “The Official Live Bootlegs Volume 1” celebrates the concert tours following ASIA‘s first two albums in 1982 and 1983. The boxset features concerts from 1982 (Buffalo, NY, USA), 1983 (Worcester, MA, USA), 2007 (São Paulo, Brazil), 2008 (Tokyo, Japan) and 2010 (London, UK).
Keyboard player Geoff Downes says of the boxset: “This historical collection represents some of our finest and most defining live moments from the very first ASIA tour in 1982 and the ‘Alpha’ tour the following year through three of our many ‘Reunion’ shows. It was such a privilege to take ASIA‘s music to these different continents and feel the warmth and support from fans all over the world. We hope this brings back great memories and inspires others to appreciate the music of ASIA.”
