Fans will enjoy long time favorites, including “Yours is No Disgrace,” “I’ve Seen All Good People,” “Starship Trooper,” “Close to the Edge,” “And You And I,” “Going for the One,” “Wondrous Stories,” “Awaken,” and more, in a completely unique format. Moreover, Yes will perform all tracks in the order they appear on their corresponding studio albums.

“These albums we all easily agreed on—they are complete works in themselves. And several of the songs have rarely been performed live,” says Yes guitarist, Steve Howe. “I believe the one song we’ve never performed in concert is ‘A Venture’ from The Yes Album,” states Yes co-founder and bassist, Chris Squire. Yes drummer, Alan White goes on to say, “This is a great opportunity to show the growth of Yes throughout different eras, and to once again enjoy the great memories of those times, as well as create brand new ones. We’re looking forward to performing these albums. It’s going to be fun for us, and we think our fans will love it as well.”

The tour visits Seattle, WA; San Francisco, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Reno, NV; Aspen, CO; Kansas City, MO; Austin, TX; Clearwater, FL; New York, NY; Detroit, MI; Toronto, Ontario; and a variety of other cities. See the tour page for complete tour itinerary information, including venues and dates.
