From Planet Rock.
YES will play eight headline UK shows next summer on The Album Series Tour 2020.
Opening at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on Tuesday 26th May, the tour calls in at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall, York Barbican, Gateshead Sage, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall and Manchester Bridgewater Hall before culminating at London’s world-famous Royal Albert Hall on Friday 5th June 2020.
The current incarnation of YES – Steve Howe (guitars), Alan White (drums), Geoff Downes (keyboards), Billy Sherwood (bass guitar and backing vocals), Jon Davison (vocals) and Jay Schellen (additional drums and percussion) – will be performing the 1974 album ‘Relayer’ in its entirety together with other classic progressive rock gems from their distinguished musical history.
Tickets to the tour go on sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 10am on Friday 11th October.
Each night, the show will comprise two sets by the band with full production and a high definition video wall. The first will feature favourite classic tracks from YES’ extensive catalogue. The second will feature ‘Relayer’, the seventh studio album by YES, and one of the band’s most distinctive.
“We are really looking forward to playing ALL of the Relayer album,” says Steve Howe. “Having premiered The Gates Of Delirium this year, we continue by expanding our Album Series with all the tracks: ‘The Gates Of Delirium’, ‘Sound Chaser’ and ‘To Be Over’.
“During the first half of the evening we’ll be performing a refined selection from Yes’ enormous 50 year + repertoire. See you there!”
Alan White adds: “I always enjoy coming home to England so I’m especially looking forward to Yes’ upcoming Album Series 2020 tour.
“‘Relayer’ I believe, is one of the most creative and interesting musical compilations in the bands repertoire. Challenging and extremely enjoyable to play, I’m happy to be bringing this music back to live stages throughout Europe. I hope all who attend our shows will enjoy these cuts as much as we like performing them for our audiences.”
