Featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman
Rock icons Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, and Rick Wakeman are proud to announce that, effective immediately, they will officially be known as "YES featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman," which is the name they will be touring under in North America during the latter half of 2017.
The Seneca Niagara Events Center will rock with YES at 8 p.m. Oct. 7. Tickets will go on sale at noon on July 21, and start at $45.
Since reuniting for a U.S. tour in 2016, YES has performed sold-out shows in Israel, the UK, Belgium and Holland, and have a Japanese tour scheduled for April. Due to public demand, they return to tour the U.S. again this year, from Aug. 26 through Oct. 11. And to the delight of longtime YES fans, all three musicians inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 7.
"It's very simple: The fans want it, we want it, and it's our right to use the name. YES music is in our DNA!" Anderson said.
In addition to the tour dates, the trio will record new material throughout the summer for a projected album release of early 2018. Also upcoming is a DVD that was filmed at the final U.K. show of their recent European tour, set for release later this year.
The most successful prog rock group of all time, YES was co-founded by Anderson and the late Chris Squire in 1968. The band went on to sell millions of units with releases such as "Fragile," "Close to The Edge," "Tales From Topographic Oceans," "Going For The One" and "90125." YES embarked on several record-breaking world tours.
Whilst Wakeman is predominantly associated with the '70s "prog era" of the band (which saw YES become a worldwide stadium headliner) and Rabin associated with the '80s "pop era" of the band (which furthered the band's popularity - including the band's biggest chart success), Anderson is the bridge between both factions (as he was a member of both eras). The touring band lineup is completed by Lee Pomeroy on bass and Louis Molino III on drums.
