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 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…
