Never miss another 'Yes' show
The year 2018 marks half a century since the formation of the legendary group YES, one of the biggest bands in prog-rock history and true pioneers of the genre. To celebrate this remarkable milestone, YES will embark on a 10-date UK tour next March - #YES50.
On this not-to-be-missed tour, YES (Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, Jon Davison and Billy Sherwood) will feature not only many of the band's classic hits but performances of sides 1 and 4 and an excerpt from Side 3 of their 1973 album Tales from Topographic Oceans, which was the first Yes album to top the UK album charts.
The final weekend of the UK tour at the London Palladium on 24th and 25th March will include a 50th Anniversary fan convention - more details of the anniversary celebrations will be announced soon.
Talking about their 50th Anniversary, Steve Howe said, 'We want to mark this anniversary with a tour that encompasses some of our best loved work - we want to play things we enjoy, maybe songs we haven't done in a while.' Geoff Downes adds 'I feel enormously privileged be a part of the legacy of the incredible and unique line of musicians in YES. The band has always remained fresh and inventive throughout its 50-year history, and created an amazing catalogue of music that has inspired millions from all generations.'
Alan White says 'Reflecting on the past 46 years that I've devoted my life to playing Yes music, it's been an interesting journey and a true labour of love. I've always believed in the power of music and the band's recent induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and our Grammy awarded in 1985 are testament to the longevity of influence our music has had through the years. I'm extremely grateful to continue to be performing on stages for our dedicated fans and look forward to our 50th Anniversary performing together in 2018. It's been a great ride!'
This event takes place at Brighton Centre, which has achieved Gold Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Founded in 1968 by the late and much-missed Chris Squire and Jon Anderson, the Grammy-award winners have created some of the most important and influential music in rock history, including iconic pieces such as 'Roundabout', 'Close to the Edge', 'I've Seen All Good People', 'Starship Trooper', and countless others.
The band's albums, including Fragile, Close to the Edge, Tales from Topographic Oceans, Relayer, Going For the One and 90125, have been certified multi-platinum, double-platinum, platinum, and more by the RIAA, selling over 50 million records during their long and successful career that has so far spanned six decades.
YES are undeniably one of the world's all time most influential, ground-breaking, respected and loved progressive rock bands.
