In a career first, iconic and Grammy-winning rock band Yes will perform three of their classic albums in their entirety, all in one concert, on a special tour in 2013: 1971’s The Yes Album, 1972’s Close to the Edge and 1977’s Going for the One. Music audiences will experience the albums, each representing an important milestone in Yes’ career, performed from beginning to end.
The multi-platinum progressive rock band–bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes and singer Jon Davison–will kick off the North American tour March 1 and conclude April 12 in Detroit.
After starting in West Wendover, Nevada, the historic trek continues down the West Coast including stops in Seattle (3/3, Moore Theatre), San Francisco (3/5, The Warfield) and Los Angeles (3/6, Orpheum Theatre) before heading east for shows in New York (4/9, Beacon Theatre), Toronto (4/11, Massey Hall), Detroit (4/12, Fox Theatre) and more. See the full itinerary below.
The tour will mark the first time since 1973 that YES–who have sold close to 50 million albums worldwide–have performed an album onstage in its entirety.
