Yes in Concert

by admin on July 31, 2009

I cannot believe I missed this announcement of Yes on tour in the UK, Yes just happen to be my favourite band alongside Simple Minds.

The line up is without Jon Anderson on vocals, which given his health problems and the reason for the previous cancellation of the tour, it is not surprising. His role has been taken over by David Benoit and has erringly similar unique vocals of Jon, which I am sure will not disappoint the the Yes officialdom, check out the video below.

Jon is of course a lot better and is on tour in his own right at the moment, I assume due to other commitments making it impossible to do the Yes tour this year.

The other missing from the line up is the awesome Rick Wakeman on keyboards, who managed to get a heart attack in his 40’s, no mean achievement in itself. In his case it will be his son Oliver Wakeman taking over the keyboards.

Other than that the group is made up of Steve Howe Chris Squire and Alan White for me the original and the best.

I of course will be hoping to make it to see them at the Apollo in Manchester on Sunday 22nd November at 2009 – 7.30pm tickets can be bought here
