Yes announce rescheduled UK leg of Relayer tour

Yes have announced rescheduled dates for their recently postponed Relayer tour of the UK and Ireland.

Originally set to begin later this month as part of the band’s Album Series, the trek will now take place in May 2021.

The shows will feature two sets: the first will feature favorite classic tracks from Yes’ extensive catalogue, while the second will present their seventh studio album, 1974’s “Relayer.”

Featuring the addition of Swiss musician Patrick Moraz following the departure of keyboardist Rick Wakeman, “Relayer” was a top 5 record for the group in both the UK and US.

The 2021 UK run will be preceded by a rescheduled European tour that will begin next April.

“Many things have changed in the world these past few months,” says drummer Alan White. “My appreciation for the freedoms we’ve enjoyed in the past has grown along with my gratitude for all the people caring for humanity throughout the world.

"I can’t wait to be on stage again in front of real audiences playing Yes music. I’m hoping we can bring some joy and positivity back into our lives. Please take care and stay safe, we want to see our many fans and friends again in 2021!”
