Yes expand 2013 tour

Progressive Rock legends Yes have added more dates to their 2013 tour due to overwhelming demand.

The newly added dates start May 19th with 6 shows in Brazil and one each in Chile and Argentina. The new North American dates launch July 6th in Paso Robles, CA and wrap up August 14th in Rosemont, IL.

The tour marks the first time since 1973 that Yes - bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes and singer Jon Davison - have performed an album onstage in its entirety.

The current trek sees the band performing 1971's "The Yes Album", 1972's "Close To The Edge" and 1977's "Going For The One" from beginning to end.

The first leg of the tour launched March 1st in Nevada and runs through April 12th in Detroit.
