Yes announce new live album

From Loudersound.

Prog legends Yes have announced they will release a new live album The Royal Affair Tour: Live In Las Vegas through BMG Records on October 30. The Royal Affair Tour: Live In Las Vegas was recorded at the Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas, in July 2019, reaches a climax with two of the best-loved Yes tracks Roundabout and Starship Trooper, always a high note on which to close the set.

“Having the opportunity to bring together the band members in the development of a well refined set of songs that captures the bands true potential is simply an honour for me,” says guitarist Steve Howe.

The Royal Affair tour album, being released in October, is a welcome new chapter in the wide expanse of Yes live recordings,” says drummer Alan White. “I hope you enjoy it.”

The Royal Affair Tour features new cover artwork from Roger Dean which he recently painted live on Facebook while also fielding questions from fans.

The Royal Affair Tour: Live In Las Vegas has been mixed by Yes bassist Billy Sherwood. It will be available to purchase online from the Yes store from October 2.

    YES Yes in the 1980s: Decades (2021 UK 186-page softback book - While most authors concentrate on their 1970s career, 'Yes in the 1980s' looks in forensic detail at this relatively underexamined era of the band's history, featuring rarely-seen photos researched by author David Watkinson. The book follows the careers of all nine significant members of the group during a turbulent decade which saw huge highs but also many lows. Not only does it consider the three albums the band itselfmade across the decade, but also the solo careers and other groups [including Asia, XYZ, The Buggles, Jon and Vangelis and GTR] formed by those musicians as the decade wound towards a reunion of sorts in the early 1990s)
