Asia

Japan is so fascinating because once you think you've learned every sick and twisted fact about the place, something like this comes along:
When AOR supergroup Asia came to Japan in March last year, all seven dates of their tour sold out. The excitement was, perhaps, forgivable: It had taken the band's original lineup more than 25 years to get here.
No, it's not forgivable. This was a band whose music was barely tolerable when it was new (circa 1982).


And no, seventy five bucks is too much cash for someone to be able to use 'gaijin humiliation' as an excuse.
