Yes announce Close To The Edge 50th anniversary US Tour

Yes have announced dates for a fall US Tour that will celebrate the 50th anniversary of their 1972 iconic album, “Close To The Edge.”

This marks the band’s first trek in the U.S. since 2019 and will kick off with two shows in Glenside, PA at the Keswick Theatre on Friday, October 7 and Saturday, October 8 and wrap in New York at the NYCB Theatre on November 19.

As with “The Album Series Tour 2022,” which started off in the UK this past June, the U.S. tour is dedicated to the late Alan White — the band’s legendary drummer — following his passing this past May.

Before the tour gets underway, a special tribute concert — “Alan White: Celebrating His Life and Music” — will be held October 2, 7:00pm at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle.

Alan’s good friend, drummer Jay Schellen, will join Yes for the forthcoming tour, alongside Steve Howe (guitars & backing vocals), Geoff Downes (keyboards), Jon Davison (lead vocals) and Billy Sherwood (bass guitar and backing vocals).

The “Close to the Edge” show will comprise full production and a high-definition video wall directed by Andy Clark and featuring the artwork of Roger Dean.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, September 2; for details, visit yesworld.com.
