Yes extends 2013 tour

April 1, 2013
Due to overwhelming demand--including sold-out shows in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Austin and Toronto--the iconic and Grammy-winning rock band YES have added two new legs of dates to their triple-header concert tour where they’re performing three of their classic albums in their entirety, all in one concert: 1971’s THE YES ALBUM, 1972’s CLOSE TO THE EDGE, and 1977’s GOING FOR THE ONE (track listing for all three albums listed below).

The newly added dates start May 19 with six shows in Brazil and one each in Chile and Argentina. The new North American dates launch July 6 in Paso Robles, CA and include stops in Anaheim, CA, Las Vegas, NV, Atlanta, GA, Washington, DC and Montreal, CAN and wrap August 14 in Rosemont, IL. 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 first leg of the tour launched March 1 in Nevada and runs through April 12 in Detroit, with a brief detour March 25-30 for “The Yes Cruise,” which departed from Ft. Lauderdale and visited Grand Cayman and Jamaica. Music audiences are relishing the experience of the three albums--each representing an important milestone in YES’ career which encompasses sales of close to 50 million albums worldwide--performed from beginning to end.

See the full itinerary below. 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.
