Owners of lonely hearts, rejoice: Yes has just announced plans to tour this spring with a short string of Canadian dates. Kicking off in Victoria, BC at the Save on Foods Memorial Centre on March 19, the band will travel through Vancouver, BC; Kelowna, BC; Edmonton, AB; Ottawa, ON; and Quebec City, QC, to name a few, with a final gig on April 2 in Hamilton, ON, at the Hamilton Place Theatre. This tour sees the band performing three albums—The Yes Album (1971), Close To The Edge (1972), and Going For The One (1977)—for their adoring fans, and it also marks the first time since 1973 (that’s forty years, folks) that the band has performed an album in its entirety onstage. Tickets are on sale to the general public now.
Formed in England in 1968, Yes is known for their progressive, artsy style of rock music, which features lengthy compositions and cosmic lyrics. The band has recorded 21 studio albums and 14 live albums, with another one on the way. Given their long musical tenure, Yes is also among the nominees for this year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductions, alongside music legends such as Deep Purple, Nirvana, Hall & Oates, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens, and the Zombies.
