Wetton & Downes Gig

Getting a bit behind here. Last weeked we went down to Rotherham once again to the Classic Rock Society for a gig by John Wetton and Geoffrey Downes of Asia, King Crimson, UK and Yes fame. Assisted by John Mitchell on guitar, and Steve Christey on drums, it was a great night of new Wetton/Downes songs from the latest album ICON, as well as older material like Emma, and even some Asia songs like the US number 1 Heat of The Moment. Add to this a short solo spot by Downes playing Video Killed the Radio Star and Bolero, and an acoustic slot by Wetton, and it was nice mix.

The support act weren't half bad either, 10ACRE who seemed to have half the countries guitarists on stage at the same time!
