Iconic and Grammy-winning rock band YES will tour Australia this November for a four city Australian tour where the band will be performing two of their classic albums in their entirety.  Having sold over 50 million records over its forty-six year career, YES continues creating masterful music that inspires fans and musicians from around the world. With rave reviews and sell out shows in the US, YES are thrilled to bring this very special show to Australia for the first time.  Fans will hear the 1971 groundbreaking albumFRAGILE and the 1972 album CLOSE TO THE EDGE from start to finish, followed by an encore of the band’s greatest hits.   



WOW!

Yes have definitely toured Australia before. My dad saw them in the 70's, around the release of Tales.

Anyone know who the Australian promoter is?
I want to start bugging them to bring the show to Adelaide.
It worked for the Crimson ProjeKCt.

They've definitely toured before, twice in my lifetime, I was there (with `Atomic Crimson Scott' for the last one a couple of years back actually!), unless it was all some vivid wish-fulfillment fantasy!

Which, if it was, would have been the band in the 70's prime, not Skeletor Howe and co!

If you sign up for a Ticketmaster account (free), you can buy tickets right now. I just got second row from the front at midday today, very excited!

I think general sales start Monday 9am. Someone else I was speaking to mentioned they got 11 rows back at this point, and that was a few hours ago now.

Are you going to this one, Scott?

I had the privilege of meeting Scott here at that Melbourne show, fellow Archivers!

I had no idea you recorded some footage of the show!

Damn...I saw them here in the US in 2012 for $25.  My stepson had Groupon coupon, we were about the 15th row.  The back up band was Procol Harum.

I enjoyed the show as they played only 70s stuff and The Fly From Here suite only from that album.  Jon Davison was the singer and was flawless.

Have fun mates!!
