Recorded on the 24th July 2010 at the inaugural High Voltage Festival in Victoria Park, London, this ASIA live CD / DVD captures the band, in the original line-up, performing classic material from the 80s, plus songs from the first two albums of its reunion, “Phoenix” and “Omega”.
 
The show was performed to an enthusiastic festival crowd ready to hear the world’s biggest selling album of 1982 performed in its entirety for the first time in Europe.  In fact, this remains the only video document of the original line-up performing the debut album in full.
 
This live CD / DVD is an irreplaceable companion to the original studio album and the reunion that saw the original members of ASIA return to and stay at the top of their game, this time in front of a ‘home audience’.

John Wetton: lead vocal and bass

63 minutes? Is It a joke?

What in Gods name were they thinking releasing this?!? The vocals are some of the weakest I have ever heard on an official live album, especially One Step Closer is totally horrible!!! This release is a lose-lose-situation - the band will be embarrassed, and the fans will never buy another Asia live album.
