2017 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees YES and longtime drummer Alan White have today (7/26) announced that Dylan Howe, son of guitarist Steve Howe, will be joining the band's rhythm section on this summer's 31-date North American YESTIVAL tour creating a twin drum powerhouse alongside White, in similar fashion that Bill Bruford and White brought on their Union Tour in the early 1990s with two drummers playing simultaneously.
 

2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee YES has revealed additional tour dates for this summer's YESTIVAL outing with special guest Todd Rundgren and an opening set from Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy honoring the magic of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, as well as a few special "Evening With YES" shows.

Details for the fifth annual CRUISE TO THE EDGE excursion -- prog-rock's largest festival at sea hosted by classic rock icons YES -- have been announced. Featuring some of the world's greatest prog-rock musical artists, the 5-night cruise out of Tampa, FL next February 3-8, will return aboard Royal Caribbean's award-winning Brilliance Of The Seas, visiting two new ports: Belize City, Belize and Costa Maya, Mexico.
Rock icons Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman are proud to announce that effective immediately, they will officially be known as ‘YES featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman’, which is the name they will be touring under in North America during the latter half of 2017.

In advance of tomorrow's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, YES revealed their initial summer touring plans live on SiriusXM last night during their exclusive in-studio audience event "SiriusXM Volume Presents an Artist Confidential with YES."

YES today (4/3) announced a special event with SiriusXM to celebrate the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Class of 2017, this Friday, April 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The exclusive in-studio audience event "SiriusXM Volume Presents an Artist Confidential with YES" will be hosted by David Fricke and broadcast live this Wednesday, April 5 on VOLUME, the first 24/7 talk radio channel dedicated to the discussion of music, starting at 8pm ET/5pm PT.

As the members of YES prepare for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Class of 2017--Friday, April 7 at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, NY--drummer ALAN WHITE looks back on the band's nearly 50-year history and what's still to come for one of the world's most influential, ground-breaking, and respected progressive rock bands.

Anderson, Rabin, and Wakeman (ARW) took the stage Sunday night at San Francisco’s Masonic Auditorium to an enraptured crowd. There have been numerous configurations of the Yes lineup, yet perhaps none that so perfectly encapsulates the band’s journey through various eras.

Back in 1990, three former YES band members, vocalist Jon Anderson, guitarist Trevor Rabin and keyboardist Rick Wakeman rejoined forces for the successful YES ‘Union Tour’. In 2010, the three talents decided to create their own band, which they named ARW (Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman). As their 2016 tour promised, their aim was to play YES hits and more. YES was formed originally in 1968 by Anderson and the late bassist Chris Squire.

YES has once again been nominated for induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame following two previous nominations. It was announced this morning (10/18) that the band is on the ballot for the class of 2017.

"It is a distinguished honor to again receive a nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame," shares drummer Alan White. "Yes has a history of being pioneers in exploring new musical territory, 48 years later the band is still continuing this quest, who knew? Thank you for the consideration of this esteemed award."
