Yes 2012, L to R (Steve Howe, Geoff Downes, Jon Davison, Alan White, Chris Squire)
Yes

Though the classic Yes lineup (Anderson, Squire, Howe, Bruford, White, Wakeman) has not been in place in close to ten years, the progressive rock greats (current members above) will hit the road for a tour in celebration of three albums that were the fruit of their labor. Yes will play The Yes Album, Close to the Edge and Going for the One in their entirety during a US tour in March, hitting Beacon Theater on April 9th. Ticketing info is on the way.

All tour dates are listed below, along with Spotify streams of the classic Yes LPs.

Would rather sit through this than a Jeff Mangum show.

gosh no!!!

No Jon Anderson? This is a joke.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 10:48 AM

Dead Milkmen had the best album title ever, with "Anderson, Walkman, Buttholes, And How!"

who are these turkeys? this can't possibly be worth it, right? i mean, i used to love yes and would love to see them, but not a bunch of stand-ins.

talk to me, fans.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 10:52 AM

Well, at least they still have Squire

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 10:53 AM

10:52, other than Squire and Howe, the others are people who have played with Yes over the years, but are not original.

My grandfather is gonna be psyched.

But will they be collaborating with Arcade Fire and that fat guy?

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 11:06 AM

Yes!

Posted by Regular reader | December 10, 2012 11:08 AM

10:59, I appreciate that, but is it worth going to see? If it's a train wreck, I'll pass. Guess I need to see the prices, too.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 11:10 AM

They never said "Original" 10:59 they said "classic," which this is. it's the Yes lineup that everyone is most familiar with

10:52. See this lineup.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 11:12 AM

Why no Anderson? Squire is technically only real original, but w/o Anderson, closer to a Yes tribute band.

Posted by anonymous | December 10, 2012 11:13 AM

11:12 - of course you are correct. These guys are the CLASSIC lineup of Yes. That is what the article says, if you have a problem with reading comprehension. Go back to sleep. It's only Monday. You'll catch up.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 11:23 AM

You can barely stomach seeing them without Wakeman but saying you saw YES with no Jon Anderson is not even funny of a joke.
I mean, seeing YES without the voice of YES? was there another band with a more distinctive voice?

Posted by ME | December 10, 2012 11:26 AM

the stand-in for anderson does a fantastic job. saw them on the last tour.

anderson's voice is shot anyway.

11:26 how bout Queen?

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 11:53 AM

no Roundabout?

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 12:14 PM

tickets start at $2,300

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 12:24 PM

@11:46 - Anderson's voice was shot a few years ago due to illness, but now is better than ever. No Jon No Yes.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 12:31 PM

Which one of those albums is Owner of a Lonely Heart on?

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 12:35 PM

Going For the One?

Call me crazy, but isn't Fragile a glaring omission from this list of "classic" albums??

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 12:44 PM

Saw these guys in the 90's, in Boston. Show was alright. Slight bore, but more than anything were Jon Anderson's annoying stage mannerisms. Just picture Richard Simmons singing "Roundabout". Drove me insane. That was it. No more, at least not with him singing.

Steve Howe looks like he's only a couple years off from being the doppelganger for the skeleton on tales from the crypt, yikes

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 12:53 PM

Saw them this year.. They were phenomenal.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 1:10 PM

12:44 - they probably chose "Going For the One" because only super-fan geeks know that (sub-par) record. It won't feel so jarring to hear someone else's voice on it, but it'll be equally as boring.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 1:36 PM

I'm not sure if the current state/status they're in will be enough to make me go see them for the first time. But the 3 classic LPs thing may just sell me. Have to think about this one.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 1:36 PM

Watching them play "And You And I" without jon anderson would just make me sob uncontrollably. sorry. pass :(

i just watched a video of yours is no disgrace from this summer and it was pretty bad

What were Geoff Downes and Jon Davison's Top 10 albums this year?

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 2:20 PM

Yes without Jon Anderson is sad but it's still better than no Yes. Squire, Howe and White were/are important pieces in the history of the greatest band ever!!!

Posted by Dollar Man | December 10, 2012 4:16 PM

Watching Wakeman on stage , with his flamboyant capes, shredding on the keys and Steve Howe doin his twitching with his signature "Sitcom Riffs" ...legends. Who cares what the baristas think.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 7:17 PM

WIthout Anderson they may as well do a tour as the latest line-up of Asia.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 8:20 PM

11:23, apparently YOU have a problem with reading comprehension. This is not the classic lineup. The posting starts with "Though the classic Yes lineup (Anderson, Squire, Howe, Bruford, White, Wakeman) has not been in place in close to ten years...."
10:52, if you're a fan, they probably won't suck. They're all great musicians. If you don't care that Jon Anderson isn't there, then it won't be a problem.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2012 11:50 PM

It isn't Yes without Ian Anderson!

Posted by Anonymous | December 11, 2012 12:01 AM

these guys look FRAGILE

What's "fruh-jee-lay" mean?

The only thing I say "Yes" to is a second helping of hummus.

11:50 - whoops. we're on the same side. my bad! It's the other guy who's an idiot. If I wasn't anonymous I'd probably be a lot more embarrassed...

Posted by 11:23 | December 11, 2012 11:23 AM

^hate to say it, but if so, its for the best-they sounded roughly 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 times better than when they were last in ny.
