Upcoming YES 3Album Tour

Yes Reveals Three-Album Show

The set list for the upcoming Yes tour will certainly delight fans. The progressive rock band will play three albums from start-to-finish each evening – “The Yes Album,” “Close To The Edge” and “Going For The One.”

Yes:
Steve Howe, Geoff Downes, Jon Davison, Alan White and Chris Squire.



Each album represents a milestone for the band. Released in 1971, The Yes Album was the band’s third studio release. With songs such as “Your Move/I’ve Seen All Good People,” “Starship Trooper,” and “Yours Is No Disgrace,” the album fueled the band’s breakthrough in the U.S.

Released in 1973, Close To The Edge took progressive rock to new heights as the band cemented its reputation for sonic complexity. On one side you have Yes’ master stroke, the incredibly structured title track while side two is home to “And You And I” and “Siberian Khatru.”

Going For The One marked the band’s return to shorter songs, which, for Yes, meant most tracks on the album clocked in under 10 minutes. Along with the rocking title track, the band shined on numbers such as “Turn Of The Century,” “Parallels” and “Wonderous Stories.” For fans wanting something a bit longer, the band also included the 15-minute piece “Awaken.”


The band’s lineup has evolved somewhat since the albums were mastered in the 1970s. Today’s Yes includes co-founding member Chris Squire along with guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White and Asia keyboardist Geoff Downes. New to the band is vocalist Jon Davison, who joined earlier this year.

“I believe the only song not performed in concert is ‘A Venture’ from The Yes Album,” Squire said. “And probably the most tricky of all the songs planned for this set is ‘Turn Of The Century’ from Going For The One.”

The schedule comes with a caveat – due to time constraints, casino shows will feature only two albums – The Yes Album and Close To The Edge.

March 1 – West Wendover, Nev., Peppermill Concert Hall
March 3 – Seattle, Wash., Moore Theatre
March 5 – San Francisco, Calif., Warfield Theatre

Re: Upcoming YES 3Album Tour

I'd go see that, prolly $150 a tix I suspect. Besides, I'd like to hear them do 'A Venture'. Thanks Thor

Re: Upcoming YES 3Album Tour

I'm already on the tix for Biloxi. Hard Rock Live = all three albums! Prices for Biloxi are $74.15 for the best ones. Not counting my chickens yet, but I'm super excited. Perfect setlist, perfect night for me (Friday), and it'll be my first Yes show (The Deep South is too sparsely populated to get bigger bands; I had to go to Atlanta to see U2).

Well, I got my tickets for my first Yes show, and I'm a little bummed to find out that it's at the Hard Rock Cafe and Casino and they won't be doing GftO, my favorite Yes album, but I'm happy to find out the tickets were only $51.50 each for the standing room at front of stage, rather than the over $100 for the three-album shows elsewhere. All in all, I'm looking forward to it.

I'm hoping to get just left of center, where I can see Steve well. Chris I'm not worrying about because he roams around anyway.
