In case you miss the first Yes 50th anniversary tour in June and July, you can catch another 50th anniversary tour -- by the other Yes -- in the late summer. Confused?
Yes featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman will honor the band's legacy with a North American tour starting on August 26th at the legendary Whisky A Go-Go in West Hollywood, California, which is where Yes played their first U.S. headlining show in 1971. Dates through September 9th in Ohio have been announced, with more to follow for early 2019. All the dates can be found at YesFeaturingARW.com.
They'll start things off overseas. A 100-date world tour will commence on June 3rd in Warsaw, Poland and will take them not only to North America, but to South America, Central and Southern Europe, Japan and the Far East, where it will end next year.
In August, Warner Brothers will release a two-CD, three-LP anthology curated by Anderson. A live CD and DVD captured in March 2017 in Manchester, England will be released in August or September. And finally, there are new songs in the works that will be out by the end of the year or early next year.
The remnants of the original band, featuring Steve Howe and Alan White, have lined up their own 50th anniversary tour with dates in June and July.
