YES revealed their initial summer touring plans, called YESTIVAL, which will feature a set list of greatest hits from all of the band’s studio albums up to 1980, showcasing the storied history of one of the world’s most influential, ground-breaking, and respected progressive rock bands.
“We are looking forward to presenting songs from each of the first nine studio albums, including some surprises,” says YES guitarist Steve Howe.
YESTIVAL will feature special guest Todd Rundgren and an opening set from Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy honoring the magic of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake. The tour kicks off August 4 and will travel across the U.S. through early September, stopping in Sugar Land at Smart Financial Centre on Wednesday, August 23rd at 8:00PM. Tickets for special VIP packages go on-sale Tuesday April 11th at 10:00AM at Ticketmaster.com. Non-VIP package tickets will go on-sale Friday April 14th at 10:00AM also on Ticketmaster.com.
On this summer’s annual trek, YES--Steve Howe (guitar), Alan White (drums), Geoff Downes (keyboard), Jon Davison (vocals) and Billy Sherwood (the late Chris Squire’s chosen successor on bass)--will treat fans to such hits as “Roundabout” and “Starship Trooper,” performing gems off every album from 1969’s Yes to 1980’s Drama.
