Geoff Downes, Angharad and Roger Dean – Trading Boundaries, Friday 23 October.
As part of Trading Boundaries’ 2015 Roger Dean art exhibition, Yes and Asia legend Geoff Downes will be performing live on Friday 23rd October.
For the first part of this exclusive evening, Roger Dean will be in conversation with Geoff Downes on stage, with Downes performing with Angharad on vocals, for the second half. GD will also encourage audience interaction as he discusses all aspects of his career, including the writing process behind some of the world’s best known hits.
Geoff Downes’ extraordinary career began with The Buggles. Formed with Trevor Horn in 1977. Their first album, The Age of Plastic, was released in 1980. Their single ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’, was No. 1 in the singles charts of sixteen countries. In the same year, both Horn and Downes joined Yes and they recorded the album Drama. The following year however, Yes disbanded only to reform again in 1983 without Downes, who had formed Asia in 1981. Asia’s self-titled first album was number 1 for 9 weeks in America, and became the biggest selling album in the world in 1982.
Geoff has been ever present in Asia since 1982, he rejoined Yes in 2011, and he has collaborated with many A list musicians over the years. It will be a fascinating evening, and tickets are selling rapidly.
