John had the following to say about the forthcoming ASIA show at The Stables on 5th June 2013. “I look forward very much to playing with young guitar player Sam Coulson. The set will feature a unique acoustic section, with songs which have never been performed before in the UK, in addition to the electric set.”
Check out the 2013 tour page for new 2013 dates in Germany.
There will not be a sound check VIP Experience at the Stables, Milton Keynes but the band will be available for a signing after the show for those who attend.
The exciting news is a limited edition fine art print will be available for purchase, and you will have the opportunity for this to be signed by the band along with the chance to meet Sam Coulson. The print will also be pre-signed by Roger Dean.
Asia is confirmed to play The Stables, Milton Keynes, UK, on June 5, 2013, 8pm.
The show will be announced next week on the venue website, but Asia fans have the pre-sales opportunity to pre-order the best seats in the house on a first come first served basis (such enquiries to be dealt with directly by the theatre).
Additionally, watch this space for details of special VIP packages for sound check meet and greets on the night.
Due to an overwhelming response the priority reservations have all been allocated on a first come first served basis. Please contact the box office, when it opens for public sale, on Tuesday 19 March.
Tomorrow, Sunday, February 24th, at 1:00 PM EST (6:00 PM GMT) Sam will be participating in a web “chat” on the Asia Guestbook. You do not need an account on the guestbook to participate.
At 12:45 PM EST (5:45 PM GMT) the Guestbook will be locked to member posts and a special “Sam Coulson Chat” topic will be created. This first post in this topic will provide participants with an email address to send questions to, and Sam’s answers will appear as part of that topic. (It may be necessary to refresh your browser from time to time if you do not see responses appearing automatically.) The email address will also be announced via Twitter and Facebook when the chat starts.
At the end of the chat, the Guestbook will be unlocked for normal use.
We look forward to seeing you there!
