Asia featuring John Payne

The Rose – Pasadena – 6/14/19.

If you were expecting to see an Asia show with original members you may be a bit disappointed, as this is a version of Asia led by John Payne, who first joined the band in 1992 as its bassist & vocalist throughout six studio albums up to 2004.  The original Asia band got back together in 2006 and worked out an agreement with John that he can keep his version of the band as “Asia featuring John Payne” and they perform songs from all of the Asia catalog.

There was a great crowd eager to hear the music. John and his band, which consisted of guitarist Moni Scaria, keyboardist Jamie Hosmer & drummer Johnny Fedevich, played at a high level while doing the Asia catalog justice.  John also told a couple stories and drank some wine with the crowd, and after the show, stayed around to sign autographs, take photos and just talk.  If you have the chance, I would recommend going to see them.
