Grammy-winning rockers Yes will make a historic trek across the nation next year, performing three classic albums in their entirety at most shows.

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 begin the late winter journey with a March 1 performance in West Wendover, NV. The 23-city outing then heads west, visiting theaters and casinos across the nation before concluding April 12 in Detroit.

Most 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.

"These albums we all easily agreed on -- they are complete works in themselves," Howe said in a press release. "This is a great opportunity to show the growth of Yes in these different eras -- and to relive the memories of these times."

This trek marks the first time since 1973 that the rockers have performed an entire album before a live audience.
