Also featuring John Lodge of the Moody Blues. They are all touring together this summer.

Bumble foot is the new vocalist / guitarist for Asia. 
Didn't see that coming.

Carl Palmer's group is the worthy exception here. The others are also rans.

Rans?

^That's correct although I forgot the hyphenation. An also-ran is, in horse racing parlance, a horse that finishes out of the money in a race.

I don't know what a rans is or an also-ran. 

Would it be possible for you to substitute it for another word(maybe a synonym) so the original sentence makes sense to me? Thanks.

"al·so-ran
/ˈôlsōˌran/
noun
noun: also-ran; plural noun: also-rans
  1. a loser in a race or other contest, especially by a large margin.
    "the line between champions and also-rans"
    • informal
      an undistinguished or unsuccessful person or thing.
Origin
late 19th century: originally applied to racehorses that did not finish in the first three."
The definition implies that no one remembers the loser of a contest, race, election, etc. As an example, you might have a number of candidates for a political office or a number of competitors in a race. They are all "running" for office, or running in the race. Everyone remembers the winner, and maybe a close 2nd place finisher, but no one will remember the ones who finished last. They are forgotten, and listed in an informational way as someone who "also ran" in the contest.  Additionally, the "also-ran" comment could imply that Yes/John Lodge/Asia's better Prog days are long behind them and that their current/recent output has little creative or impactful noteworthiness in the Prog world.  I hope that helps.
I'll nonetheless be attending this show 2-3 times and plan to enjoy every minute of it. I previously saw Carl Palmer a couple of times with his ELP Legacy show during Yestival, and enjoyed it quite a bit. His energy and performances are amazing. Looking forward to Yes/Asia/John Lodge. I had never heard of Ron Bumblefoot Thal, and although I've heard of Sons of the Orient, I had not the chance to hear their music.  I think Jay Schellen was in that band.  I was surprisingly able to meet Jay Schellen and Billy Sherwood in the hotel lobby last year while attending the Yes 50th anniversary shows---both really nice and gracious fellows.

Well, I don't know. I think all of them are major draws for the fans of those bands. It's conceivable to me that some people would only be interested in Yes but not the others, Asia but not the others, etc.

I'll be there primarily because of YES, but I will be quite happy to see/hear the other acts as well.
