Saw Asia in Manchester on Wednesday - what a great show.

An eclectic set-list spanning the entire John Wetton era(s) from the eponymous debut right through to this year's Gravitas release

The man still has his voice and sounded better than ever.

Geoff Downes never misses a note and the new guitar player - Sam Coulson, whilst lacking some of Steve Howe's finesse and nuances was top notch and helped the band rock! It does however take a bit of getting used to seeing a young gun on stage with the 3 veterans!

But the star of the show was Carl Palmer - imho the best drummer around. His drum solo was worth the ticket money alone.

When you see a great band hit their straps like they did it makes you wonder why Gravitas was so one paced and the least impressive of the post reunion releases.

The venue - Royal Northern College of Music - what a great place!!
