Asia Booking Agency Profile

Book Asia for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Asia's debut album exploded onto the music scene with several Top 10 singles and sales exceeding 7 million copies. This supergroup", featuring bassist/vocalist John Wetton, drummer Carl Palmer, keyboardist Geoff Downes, and guitarist Steve Howe, was the logical successor to their collective bands Yes, ELP, King Crimson, and The Buggles. The group came together. John Wetton's acclaimed progressive rock band UK had collapsed a few years earlier. With the help of manager Brian Lane, he wanted to form a new group with guitarist Steve Howe, best known for his work with British Prog superstars, Yes. Drummer Carl Palmer came into the fold next, having just completed a decade of platinum releases and sold out tours with Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Keyboardist Geoff Downes, who replaced Rick Wakeman in Yes for the Drama album, had previously been half of the pop duo The Buggles. They stormed the charts with the timeless classic "Video Killed The Radio Star. Labeled a "supergroup" by critics and the media from the onset, it was a tag they had never asked for. Asia's music developed organically and effortlessly. Though all four men had seen chart-topping success in their previous bands, Asia had a special chemistry that fans and music industry insiders were quick to recognize..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Asia.

Asia's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of an offer.
CTI can give you exact pricing once we submit your event details to Asia. How much Asia does cost to do an event depends on many variables and the fees we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with booking. Popularity, career stage, and current demand can cause an increase or decrease in pricing. The final fee may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for Asia to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI can not give out direct contact information for the agent or manager of Asia. If you want to send them a message, a gift, or request a free appearance or donation of time, then we will not pass along such material or communications to any of our contacts.
There is low probability for Asia to work a gig for anything substantially less than the published price range. We will negotiate with Asia on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Asia, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider Asia's travel costs, as they may require an entourage of staff and equipment. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Asia, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
