Yes Plan Three Album Tour

12/11/2012
.
A lot of bands are playing one of their classic albums in full during recent tours but Yes are upping the stakes with plans to perform three of their classic albums in their entirety each night on their upcoming tour.

The progressive rock legends plan to perform their 1971's The Yes Album, 1972's Close To The Edge and 1977's Going For The One albums in full during most of the stops on their 2013 tour.

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."

The band is set to kick off the North American tour March 1 and conclude April 12 in Detroit. A few stops on the tour will only feature performances of The Yes Album and Close To The Edge due to venue time constraints.

After starting in West Wendover, Nevada, the historic trek continues down the West Coast including stops in Seattle (3/3, Moore Theatre), San Francisco (3/5, The Warfield) and Los Angeles (3/6, Orpheum Theatre) before heading east for shows in New York (4/9, Beacon Theatre), Toronto (4/11, Massey Hall), Detroit (4/12, Fox Theatre) and 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.

"I think the 12-inch album is alive and well as reinforced by the rising interest in the analog format," says Squire when asked about the album format in the singles-driven digital age. The album, says Howe, "has never totally gone away--there are those who completely understand."
