In other news, Jon played a special one-off concert on August 8th at the Sadler's Wells Theater in London, which was by all accounts a smashing success! This was the first time Jon had performed in the UK since his tour with Rick Wakeman in 2010. “The concert in London was with the Slovakian Chamber Orchestra with the help of my good friend composer Peter Machajdik plus a semi acoustic group I performed with a couple of years ago in Bratislava,” says Jon. In honor of the UK 2012 Olympics, Jon recorded a vocal version of the Vangelis song "Chariots of Fire" titled "Race To The End", with lyrics penned by Jon. The song can be purchased at: http://www.amazon.com/Race-to-the-End/dp/B008PNX14Q/ref=sr_shvl_album_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345046374&sr=301-1  Also, Jon is featured on four tracks on the new CD by Dennis Haklar called 'Lizard's Tales'

Jon recently completed a successful summer tour in support of his critically acclaimed new 21-minute digital download release 'OPEN'. Here's what the press have raved about Jon's past few tours:

“Jon Anderson is as engaging and charming as ever!” - Howard Whitman, E-Gear Magazine, Philadelphia

“...with the still-sky-high voice wove together tunes from across his career” - Thomas Kintner, Hartford Courant, Hartford, CT

“Anderson's voice is still remarkable!” - Victor Fiorillo, The Philly Post

“His gentle, joyful presence brings light into even a darkened room” - Eri-Chan Listens

“It was clear the audience was having a good time as they sang along with Anderson, cheered him on, danced at their tables, and gave him a standing ovation during the end of the show and the encore – the place was filled with excitement, happiness and lots of love!” Ashley Perez – Chicago Music Examiner

“The songs were clearly different....warm, and enough to remind listeners why they fell in love with YES in the first place” - John J. Moser, The Morning Call, MD
