Rock Band Asia To Come To The State Theatre

The State Theatre announced that ’80s British rock band Asia will come to Happy Valley on Thursday, Sept. 18 at 8:00 p.m.

Those unfamiliar with the group may be more familiar with its hit singles from the ’80s. A prime example: The band was responsible for the chart topping singles Heat of the Moment, Only Time Will Tell, and Sole Survivor.

Asia’s original performers John Wetton, Steve Howe, Geoff Downess, and Carl Palmer have certainly changed over the years since the group’s inception, but for this show, all members but Howe are scheduled to perform. Howe’s guitar position will be replaced by new member Sam Coulson.

The band’s set list ensures that fans will get to hear both classic hits and new music from the band’s most recent album Gravitas. According to the State Theatre, the show will elicit the same level of excitement and showmanship as past sold out concerts from the likes of Kansas and Blue Oyster Cult.

So grab your tickets now, and get ready for a long, exciting night of classic rock. Tickets are available on The State Theatre’s website for purchase.
