Known for enduring radio hits like "Why Can't We Be Friends," "Cisco Kid," "Spill the Wine" and "Low Rider," legendary California band War has combined rock, funk, jazz, Latin music, R&B and reggae to sell tens of millions of albums in their more than four-decade career. War's lyrics may often be political in nature, but their music has always retained the laid-back vibe of their Southern California roots. The enduring band has been honored with 17 gold, platinum or multi-platinum awards since its formation in 1969. Renowned for their brilliant, high-energy live shows, the funk-rock legends headline the City National Grove of Anaheim. Learn More

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.
