Yes to release 2014 live set

Yes will release a new live set, “Like It Is – Yes At The Mesa Arts Center”, on July 3 in Europe and July 10 in North America.

Available in 2CD/DVD, Blu-ray and Digital formats – with vinyl to follow at a later date – the package presents material from the band’s August 12, 2014 show at the Ikeda Theater in Mesa, AZ.

The lineup of Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes and Jon Davison were on the road at the time playing dates in support of their 21st album, “Heaven & Earth.”

“That evening in Mesa, Arizona was a great one,” says Squire. “The audience was fantastic; they loved the music and really made it a very special night for us. And we were in top form. The music sounded great and we could have played all night.

“Like It Is brings the magic and wonderful music of that evening to fans everywhere, and we’re sure they’ll enjoy listening to it as much as we did performing it.”

Yes are sharing a performance of “Heart Of The Sunrise” as a preview to the package.

The band will launch a summer co-headlining tour of North America with Toto on August 7 in Mashantucket, CT.

Yes fans looking for live recordings from the band’s classic 70s era can also check out the forthcoming release, “Progeny: Seven Shows From Seventy-Two.”

Due May 19, the 14-disc box set presents seven concerts from a fall 1972 tour in support of their 5th studio album, “Close To The Edge.”
