Rock icons Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman are proud to announce that effective immediately, they will officially be known as YES featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman, which is the name they will be toured under in North America during the latter half of 2017.
“It’s very simple,” explains band founder and vocalist Jon Anderson. “The fans want it, we want it and it’s our right to use the name. YES music is in our dna!”
The definitive line-up of the greatest progressive rock band ever – Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman – together again live!
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 U.K, Belgium, and Holland, and have a Japanese tour scheduled for April. Also upcoming is a DVD release that was filmed at the final U.K. show of their recent european tour for release later this year. And to the delight of longtime YES fans, all three were inducted into the rock and roll hall fame on April 7th.
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 over the years.
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.
