Metropolitan Entertainment and New Jersey Performing Arts Center today announced world renowned prog-rock icons YES featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman will perform at New Jersey Performing Arts Center on September 27, 2017 at 7:30pm
Since reuniting for a U.S. tour in 2016, YES featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman have performed sold-out shows in Israel, the UK, Belgium and Holland. “There were multiple ‘pinch me’ moments throughout the show,” raved Daily Express. Due to public demand, they return to tour the U.S. again from August 26th through October 11th.
In addition to the tour dates, the trio will be recording new material throughout the summer for a projected album release of early 2018. Also upcoming is a DVD that was filmed at the final UK show of their recent European tour (at Manchester Apollo, on March 25th), for release later this year. And to the delight of longtime fans, YES were recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - the ceremony took place April 7th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Whilst Rick is predominantly associated with the '70s "prog era" of the band and Trevor associated with the '80s "pop era" of the band, Jon is the bridge between both factions (as he was a member of both eras). The touring band line-up is completed by two extraordinary musicians - Lee Pomeroy on bass and Louis Molino III on drums – who help to ensure that YES’ immaculate artistic legacy remains intact.
The most successful prog rock group of all time, YES, was co-founded by Jon Anderson and the late Chris Squire in 1968 and went on to sell millions of units with releases such as Fragile, Close to The Edge, Tales From Topographic Oceans, Going For The One and 90125, as well as embarking on several record-breaking world tours.
