Journey and Asia To Tour USA Together In 2017

by Paul Cashmere on December 7, 2016

in News

December seems to be the month of tour announcements and the latest comes from the combo of Journey and Asia.

Asia’s lead singer, John Wetton, said “Asia is honoured to be asked to share the stage with Journey. On a personal note, this couldn’t have come at a better time for me; I remain determined and my road to a full recovery continues. I look forward to seeing everyone on the tour next year.”

Last year, Wetton announced that he was suffering from cancer.

Both groups are touring on the strength of the respective catalogs. Asia has the newest album of the two with 2014’s Gravitas. Journey’s last studio album was 2011’s Eclipse.

At this point, the tour starts on March 15 and runs through April 4.

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began. Like, for instance, being the first artist signed to Apple Records. James “auditioned” for Apple with his song ‘Something In The Way She Moves’. "Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
