YES To Play 'Fragile' in Its Entirety On U.S. Summer Tour

Mar 26, 2014 at 10:02 AM | Music News | By Rock Square

Last year, prog rock trailblazers YES hit the road for their “Classic Albums” tour, which found the band playing The YES Album (1971), Close to the Edge (1972) and Going for the One (1977) in their entirety every night. Before launching the 2013 tour, bassist Chris Squire hinted at possible plans for similar tours in the future.

“Maybe down the line we might look at a different triple set,” Squire said. “What's likely to happen is that after this tour we'll make a new album with our new lead singer, Jon Davison. That should become the focus of our touring in 2014, but down the line there's a possibility that we'll do other albums.”

Well, here we are one year later, and YES is delivering on every one of Squire’s promises. Not only will YES be reviving its “Classic Albums” touring model, but they’ll be refreshing their repertoire by trading The YES Album and Going for the One for the classic 1971 album Fragile.

But that’s not all. In addition to performing Fragile and Close to the Edge in their entirety, YES will be playing a nightly encore composed of their greatest hits as well as material off their new studio album, Heaven and Earth, which will be released on July 8th, the same day the tour kicks off in Boston, MA. The 35-show trek will wrap up on August 24th at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Check out the full itinerary below.
