Goode," "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo," "Hustled Down in Texas," "Free Ride," "Frankenstein," "You Keep Me Hangin' On," "Get Ready," "Train to Nowhere" and many more as the Edgar Winter Band, Vanilla Fudge, Rare Earth's Peter Rivera and Savoy Brown's Kim Simmonds hit the stage with a night of their greatest hits, plus renditions of Johnny Winter's most famous tunes.

The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle: Songs & Stories, Together On Stage info • Jul 14 2014 star this tip starred

Asia’s original lineup of Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer, and John Wetton featured members of such seminal art rock bands as King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Yes. The music of Asia features stretches of indulgent instrumentals on their records. They also could be surprisingly poppy, which is what brought them to the top of the charts with their debut album, Asia.
Asia’s debut album, released in March 1982, received considerable commercial success, spending nine weeks at number one in the U.S. album chart and selling over 4 million copies in the U.S. alone. The album sold over 10 million worldwide. The single “Only Time Will Tell” became a huge Top 40 hit. “Sole Survivor” also received heavy air play on rock stations across the U.S., as did "Wildest Dreams.” The bands best performing single, and perhaps their most recognized and popular hit song, "Heat of the Moment,” climbed to #4 on the American Top 40 and spent a total of 12 weeks on the charts. MTV also played Asia videos in heavy rotation. Billboard named the Asia debut as the album of the year.
In the United States, Asia’s debut tour sold out every date and expanded to arenas because of high ticket demand.
