The iconic and Grammy-winning rock band Yes kicked off their triple header concert tour last week in West Wendover, Nevada, unveiling a true classic rock triple header by performing three of their classic albums in their entirety, all in one concert: 1971's THE YES ALBUM, 1972's CLOSE TO THE EDGE, and 1977's GOING FOR THE ONE (track listing for all three albums listed below). Music audiences in Nevada, California and Colorado experienced the albums--each representing an important milestone in YES' career which encompasses sales of close to 50 million albums worldwide--performed from beginning to end.
This tour marks the first time since 1973 that YES--bassist CHRIS SQUIRE, guitarist STEVE HOWE, drummer ALAN WHITE, keyboardist GEOFF DOWNES and singer JON DAVISON--have performed an album onstage in its entirety.
The YES tour will include 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. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the below links in the tour itinerary. Moreover, YES is proud to provide special show packages, which include near-stage seating, a meet and greet with the band, exclusive limited-edition gifts from YES, and much more.
