“There aren’t many bands that can say that they’ve had the kind of relationship like the one that we’ve had with our fans. They’ve continued to come to see us play and have always been an integral part of our journey.  We’re excited to be starting a new chapter with an extraordinary talent – Jon Davison – a brilliant vocalist who takes over as our lead singer.  We’re really happy to have him and we can’t wait for everyone to hear YES this summer,” said the band in a statement.

Known for such classics as “Roundabout,” which consistently appears on “the best songs of all-time” lists, #1 hit “Owner of a Lonely Heart”, “I’ve Seen All Good People”, “Tempus Fugit”, “Long Distance Runaround”, and “Starship Trooper”, YES have certainly left their mark on rock ‘n’ roll history. The show will feature unforgettable music from the band’s hugely successful catalogue.  YES will perform music from hit albums such as Drama, Fragile, Close to the Edge, 90125 and the band’s new release Fly From Here.

Redefining rock music for more than four decades, YES has sold over 50 million albums, reaching platinum status worldwide, and have become one of the most popular concert attractions of all time. Inspiring millions across the world to pick up instruments over the years, YES’ innovative and evolving one of a kind musical style has made the band’s sound a genre unto itself.
