Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman Announce Tour Dates

2016 will see 2 bands touring YES music; YES (Jon Davison, Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Billy Sherwood, and Alan White) currently in Europe touring Drama and Fragile, and ARW (Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, and Rick Wakeman).

Pleasing many YES fans, North American ARW dates were announced yesterday – actually just US dates – with the show being described as ‘An Evening of YES Music and More’. An album of new music is expected to coincide with the October/November tour.

The official press release takes a barely disguised swipe at present day YES stating: ‘the aim of the band will be to restore the standard of excellence in performance that they established with their 1990 shows‘ (By 1990 shows, they mean the 8 member UNION tour of 1991/1992)

Despite this eternal YES political bickering – and the inevitable fansite rantings ‘who is the real YES?’, the signs are maybe pointing to an uneasy (but commercially profitable) UNION 2 in 2018 for the band’s 50th Anniversary…….
