YES – Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes and Jon Davison – marked a career first in 2013 by performing three of their classic albums in their entirety, all in one concert. The 2014 summer tour will feature YES performing their 1971 groundbreaking album Fragile for the first-time ever and a repeat performance from last year’s tour of 1972’s Close To The Edge, followed by an encore of the band’s greatest hits. During the encore, the multi-platinum, progressive rock band will also perform material from Heaven And Earth, their new studio album, slated to be released July 8.
Fragile is considered to be YES’ U.S. breakthrough album peaking at #4 on the Billboard Album charts in the U.S. The RIAA-certified double platinum album has sold over two million copies and features YES’ hit single “Roundabout” and other classics like “Long Distance Runaround” and “Heart of the Sunrise.”
The band’s album Close To The Edge - widely regarded as one of the greatest progressive rock albums ever recorded - was on the U.S. charts for 32 weeks, peaking at #3. Inspired by Siddhartha and their “state of mind” at the time, the Gold-certified album featuring epic suites such as “Close To The Edge” and “You And I” was named one of the “100 Greatest Guitar Albums of All Time” by Guitar World in 2006.
