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.
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. The multi-platinum progressive rock band's lineup includes--bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes and singer Jon Davison.
Steve Howe says, "These albums we all easily agreed on--they are complete works in themselves," adding that several of the songs have rarely been performed live. "I believe the only song not performed in concert is 'A Venture' from The Yes Album," says Chris Squire, "And probably the most tricky of all the songs planned for this set is 'Turn of the Century' from the Going For The One album." Alan White believes "This is a great opportunity to show the growth of YES in these different eras--and to relive the memories of these times."
