Yes adds inaugural Yestival to summer schedule
Grammy-winning rockers Yes have added their first-ever one-day Yestival to their summertime itinerary.
The prog-rock outfit, comprised of singer Jon Davison (who joined the band earlier this year), bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White and keyboardist Geoff Downes, will helm its inaugural namesake festival Sept. 3 in Camden, NJ. The band will perform 1971's "The Yes Album" and 1972's "Close to the Edge" in their entirety, along with other tracks, according to a press release.
The late-summer event will also feature music from The Musical Box, Renaissance featuring Anne Haslam and Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy, among others.
Festival tickets go on sale Friday (6/7) via Ticketmaster and LiveNation.
Yes will preface the early September festival with a U.S. road trip that begins July 6 in Paso Robles, CA, and pushes through an Aug. 14 show in Rosemont, IL.
Most of these road shows will feature three albums in their entirety: 1971's "The Yes Album," 1972's "Close To The Edge" and 1977's "Going For The One." Casino performances will not feature the latter album due to time constrictions, according to a press release.
