Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on February 12, 2011

Yes – The band that has defined many a generation will embark on a mini-tour of very special intimate performances, encompassing their extraordinary musical catalog. This string of dates will kick-off early March for a select number of shows. These special intimate performances will give the Yes fan the ultimate experience of an up-close, in-your-face and personal view of the Maestros at work live!

“We’re tremendously excited to be working with Yes on this incredible tour through so many of our House of Blues and other theaters,” states Michael Yerke (House of Blues Talent). “House of Blues is all about bringing music, artists and fans together in great venues. These concerts will be memorable and absolutely deliver on that promise.”

Being one of history’s greatest, legendary, progressive rock bands, Yes will feature a lineup of guitarist Steve Howe, bassist Chris Squire, and drummer Alan White, as well as Oliver Wakeman (son of Rick Wakeman) on keyboards and lead singer Benoit David. Songs that have left a deep-rooted mark on rock ‘n’ roll history and a concert spectacular that has become synonymous with Yes, make this tour one that should not be missed.

Yes’s performance will include the hugely successful and indelible catalogue of music from hit albums such as Drama, Fragile, Close to the Edge and 90125. Classics such as “Roundabout,” a seminal hit which consistently appears on “the best songs of all-time” lists, and the group’s #1 hit “Owner of a Lonely Heart” are sure to be featured for an evening of music not to be missed.

Yes’s remarkable career has served to re-define the boundaries of rock for more than four decades, Yes has played the role as a dominant driving music force selling over 30 million albums, reaching platinum status multiple times worldwide. Their symphonic use of sound and innovative musical styles has made each of the group’s player’s a virtuoso in his own right. For additional ticket information please visit www.Yesworld.com.
