London, UK (Top40 Charts / Pilato Entertainment Marketing & Media) Thirty years after its eponymous debut album ASIA ascended to the top of the Billboard Top 100 chart (where it remained No.1 for nine consecutive weeks), the legendary British classic rock band returns with a brand new studio album, a 30th Anniversary edition of their debut album, 2 DVDs, and a world tour that includes the UK, Japan, Canada and America. In North America, the tour begins on October 11th in Quebec City, Canada and runs through November 23rd, when it concludes at Manistee, Michigan's Little River Casino Resort... For a complete list of tour dates: new studio album "XXX" (pronounced Triple X) released July 3rd on Frontiers Records is being hailed as ASIA's best album since its classic early 80s releases.

In 2006, the original line-up of ASIA with Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer and John Wetton reunited. The official ASIA website is:

"We're very pleased with and confident about XXX," says John Wetton. "It encapsulates, lyrically and instrumentally, the essence of ASIA today. However, it is the very same four people that gave you the original, iconic album 30 years ago. If you loved it then, you will love it now."

On October 9th, at the launch of the tour, ASIA will be honored at Cleveland's ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAME museum, in its Legends Series. On November 7th, AXS TV will broadcast the band's San Francisco show to 35 million plus households.

Also due is "Resonance", a DVD concert film of the group's 2010 Omega World Tour, captured live in Switzerland which will be released later in the fall. In addition, to celebrate their 30th Anniversary, ASIA will release a collector's edition box set based on ASIA's legendary 1982 eponymous debut album.

The 30th anniversary edition of their debut album will feature a re-mastered edition of the debut album, a CD of live rare tracks, an expansive historical booklet, a limited edition ASIA T-shirt, goodies from ASIA's 1982 tour, a DVD of the new band documentary: ASIA - 30 Years On, and a newly commissioned painting by Roger Dean.
