YES Announces Second Leg of Tour Dates

It appears that fans are saying “YES!” to YES’ triple-header concert tour. The band just announced that they are adding more North American dates to the tour.

The new North American dates launch July 6 in Paso Robles, CA and include stops in Morristown, NJ, Holyoke, MA, Munhall, PA, Detroit, MI and wrap August 14 in Rosemont, IL

This tour is a really cool concept. During the show that band performs three of their classic albums in their entirety including: 1971’s THE YES ALBUM, 1972’s CLOSE TO THE EDGE, and 1977’s GOING FOR THE ONE

The in-progress tour marks the first time since 1973 that YES--bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes and singer Jon Davison -- have performed an album onstage in its entirety.

The tour is getting good reviews including this one from Chris Epting of AOL’s Noisecreep.com on the March 6th show at the Orpheum:  “Last night…Yes demonstrated why they remain one of the most vaunted and respected musical forces in progressive rock among both fans and players alike…The well-oiled rhythm section of drummer Alan White and bassist Chris Squire provided many subtle flourishes, as did keyboardist Geoff Downes…Singer Jon Davison, now a year into his role as front man, demonstrated from the outset that he is more than up to the task…
