It’s 50 “true summers long” since YES formed way back in 1968 and they are playing a UK tour to celebrate this milestone of an anniversary.  Formed by Jon Anderson and the late Chris Squire the band has gone on to earn Grammy’s and in 2017 was inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame.

YES are one of the most admired and respected progressive rock bands with a string of classic albums to their name – The Yes Album, Fragile, Close To The Edge, Relayer, Tormato, Drama and many others; this list also includes the chart topping Tales From Topographic Oceans and Going For The One – with the band selling in excess of 50 million copies worldwide. 

On this tour YES will play classic songs from across many of their albums but will also be playing sides 1 and 4 from Tales From Topographic Oceans.  Guitarist Steve Howe says of this tour: “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.”

This is obviously going to be a show not to be missed when they play at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on Saturday 17th March.

The current line-up of YES is:

Steve Howe: guitars, backing vocals (1970 –1981, 1990–1992, 1995–present)

Alan White: drums, percussion (1972 – present)

Geoff Downes: keyboards (1980–1981, 2011–present)

Billy Sherwood: guitar, backing vocals ((1994, 1997–2000), bass guitar, backing vocals (2015–present)

Jon Davison: lead vocals, acoustic guitar (2012–present)
