John will be joined by; John Mitchell (Arena, It Bites) on Guitar, Martin Orford (IQ, Jadis) on Keyboards and Steve Alexander (Duran Duran) on Drums.
 
As part of this amazing evening, legendary prog rock artist Roger Dean, will be displaying previous work produced for Asia.

Too far away for me, I'm afraid, but it's nice to see Orford returning, even if, as he says, it is a one off.

Let's hope not.
In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

This always blows my mind!  John is probably the most successful prog bassist in history (unless Rutherford surpassed him in revenue!).    The guy's longevity and pedigree is astounding.

it takes a man of the calibre of john wetton to coax martin orford temporarily out of retirement!
