John Payne became the frontman of the supergroup Asia in 1992 at the invitation of keyboardist Geoff Downes, replacing vocalist/bassist John Wetton. Since then, John Payne has steered Asia’s momentum onto the next decade with eight studio albums, including Aqua and Alpha.
In 2006, Geoff Downes left the band to reform the 1982 lineup for their 25th anniversary. John Payne, Geoff Downes, John Wetton, Carl Palmer and Steve Howe contractually agreed that John Payne would continue his legacy with Asia as “Asia Featuring John Payne.” Asia Featuring John Payne has been touring in North America since 2008.
Relive the golden era of Payne’s Asia as they play hits like “Heat of the Moment,” “Here Comes the Feeling,” and “Sole Survivor.” John Fedevich (drums), Jamie Hosmer (keyboards), Jeff Kollman (guitar) and Moni Scaria (guitar) make up the current lineup of this legendary group.
