Yes and Asia Team Up For US Tour

(PR) Acclaimed British band YES launch their 24-city U.S. tour on June 26 at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, CA, featuring the classic line-up of guitarist Steve Howe, bassist Chris Squire and drummer Alan White with new vocalist Benoit David and keyboardist Oliver Wakeman, son of the group's Rick Wakeman.

The tour runs through August 2 at Bethlehem, PA and includes stops at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre (July 2), L.A.'s Gibson Amphitheatre at City Walk (July 7) and Philadelphia's Tower Theater (July 28). The new dates come after this year's West Coast tour was postponed when Chris Squire was hospitalized for leg surgery.

For this tour, YES will be joined by Special Guest Asia, with Howe, a cornerstone member of both groups, performing as part of each band's set, alongside original Asia members, including ex-YES and Buggles keyboardist Geoff Downes, ELP's Carl Palmer on drums and former King Crimson and UK bassist/guitarist/vocalist John Wetton.

Said Howe: "This is a monumental event and even though it will be a challenge, I am up for it."
