BIO:

Throughout 2013, the iconic and Grammy-winning rock band YES marked a career first by performing a triple-header concert featuring three of their classic albums in their entirety, all in one concert. For 2014, the band is back to rock crowds nationwide with an amazing show. The 35-date summer tour will feature YES performing--in their entirety--1971’s groundbreaking album FRAGILE for the first-time ever and a repeat performance from last year’s tour of 1972’s CLOSE TO THE EDGE, followed by an encore of the band’s greatest hits.

 

During the encore on the upcoming tour, the multi-platinum progressive rock band--bassist CHRIS SQUIRE, guitarist STEVE HOWE, drummer ALAN WHITE, keyboardist GEOFF DOWNES and singer JON DAVISONwill also perform material off HEAVEN AND EARTH, their new studio album, out July 8.

 

The album FRAGILE is considered to be their U.S. breakthrough album peaking at #4 on the Billboard Album charts in the U.S. The RIAA-certified double platinum album has sold over two million copies and features YES’ hit single “Roundabout” and other classics like “Long Distance Runaround” and “Heart of the Sunrise.” It also marks the band’s first collaboration with artist Roger Dean on cover art, who has designed many of the band’s album covers and logos. The band’s album CLOSE TO THE EDGEwidely regarded as one of the greatest progressive rock albums ever recordedwas on the U.S. charts for 32 weeks, peaking at #3. A Rolling Stone review noted, “Yes’ colors are subtle, almost imperceptible tints, but the main strokes are bold and thick, applied with sureness and natural instinct.” Inspired by Siddhartha and their “state of mind” at the time, the Gold-certified album featuring epic suites such as “Close To The Edge” and “You And I” was named one of the “100 Greatest Guitar Albums of All Time” by Guitar World (2006).

The best Yes experience I ever had was at Tingley Coliseum in support of their chart-pleasing new wave-prog epic 90125. If you’re not familiar with this constantly mutating collection of aging dreamers' and master musicians' oeuvre, their Wednesday, Aug. 13, concert is an opportunity to familiarize oneself with their early to mid-career work. This year’s model features veteran Yesmen Chris Squire, Steve Howe and Alan White, '80s addition Geoff Downes (The Buggles, Asia) and newcomer Jon Davison filling the vast vocal emptiness that ensued when Jon Anderson retired. The lineup has deconstructed, reconstructed and evolved over the years, but bassist and composer Chris Squire is a constant presence in the Yes music-making process. The Yes 2014 tour features recitals of Fragile and Close to the Edge, mid-'70s works that defined the scope and vision of prog rock. In some places idyllic and furious in others, Anderson’s lyricism and the combined chops of everyone involved produced recordings of lasting beauty and grandeur sans the theatrics of contemporaries like Genesis and Jethro Tull. Given these production values and musical cred, the concert's a must-see for space voyagers and neo-pastoralists alike. Starting at 7:30pm, all ages are welcome at Route 66 Legends Theater (14500 Central SW), and tickets run between $25 and $250, depending how close to the edge you want to be.
