Yes Get Back On The Road

Tuesday, 26 February 2013

Seminal prog rock band Yes will be kicking off a 26 date North American tour in early March, and fans can expect a totally new and unique Yes experience. For the first time ever, Yes will be preforming three of its most popular albums (The Yes Album, Close to the Edge, and Going for the One) in their entirety.

These shows will see Yes members Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, and Jon Davison, playing some of the staples that have dramatically influenced rock music over the last four decades. Fans can expect some of their long time favorites, including "Yours is No Disgrace," "I’ve Seen All Good People," "Starship Trooper," "Close to the Edge," "And You And I," "Going for the One," "Wondrous Stories," "Awaken," and many more, in a completely unique format. Moreover, Yes will perform all tracks in the order they appear on their corresponding studio albums.

"These albums we all easily agreed on—they are complete works in themselves. And several of the songs have rarely been performed live," says Yes guitarist, Steve Howe. "I believe the one song we’ve never performed in concert is ‘A Venture’ from The Yes Album," states Yes co-founder and bassist, Chris Squire. Yes drummer, Alan White goes on to say, "This is a great opportunity to show the growth of Yes throughout different eras, and to once again enjoy the great memories of those times, as well as create brand new ones. We’re looking forward to performing these albums. It’s going to be fun for us, and we think our fans will love it as well."

Tour dates are listed below, and Yes is proud to provide special show packages, which include near-stage seating, a meet and greet with the band, exclusive limited-edition gifts from Yes, and much more.
