Yes announce greatest hits US tour, ELP’s Carl Palmer and Todd Rundgren to open

Summer outing announced ahead of Yes' induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame


    Prog rock icons Yes will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tomorrow. Ahead of the historic event, they’ve announced plans for a greatest hits tour across the US.

    Dubbed “YESTIVAL”, the summer outing will feature classic tracks from the band’s first nine studio albums, including 1971’s Fragile, 1974’s Relayer, and 1980’s Drama. The jaunt runs from early August to early September, and counts Baltimore, Brooklyn, Cleveland, Phoenix, Oklahoma City, and Los Angeles as stops. More dates are expected to be announced soon.

    The touring lineup for Yes consists of Steve Howe (guitar), Alan White (drums), Geoff Downes (keyboard), Jon Davison (vocals), and Billy Sherwood (the late Chris Squire’s chosen successor on bass). Founding member Jon Anderson will take part in this weekend’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame festivities, but is not expected to join the band on the road.


    Joining Yes on the road will be Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy band honoring the work of Emerson, Lake & Palmer and multi-instrumentalist/producer Todd Rundgren.
