Yes has announced an extensive UK and European tour for April 2016. The band will be performing 1971’s Fragile and 1980’s Drama in their entirety, the latter for the very first time, plus other seminal tracks including "Owner of a Lonely Heart" and "Starship Trooper."
"Most of the songs haven’t been performed in some 30 years," said Steve Howe. "Fragile and Drama mark two essential chapters of our career and we’re looking forward to share the whole journeys with our fans throughout Europe."
"Reliving those years will be very emotional, " adds drummer Alan White. "I know Chris would have loved to be here with us for this."
Yes lost bassist and co-founder Chris Squire last summer, a tragedy that left the prog world in mourning. His replacement, Billy Sherwood, found a big pair of shoes to fill, as Yes set out to honor his memory by keeping the band’s legacy alive. With Squire's blessing, they toured the US in 2014 with Toto to an enthusiastic reception.
Still as relevant today as they were in the 70s, Yes has maintained a loyal following while constantly attracting new crowds of music fans throughout 47 years of outstanding career. With Fragile and Drama representing two essential moments of the band’s history, it will be an opportunity for all to rediscover some undisputed gems of the genre.
