April 16, 2012, Clearwater, FL - Yes is hitting the road this summer with very special guest Procol Harum and the tour will make a stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Sunday, July 29 at 7 pm. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, April 21 at noon.
Original members, Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Alan White, along with Jon Davison (vocals) and Geoff Downes (keyboards) of YES return to Ruth Eckerd Hall for the first time since their sold-out concert in 2010. As a dominant force for more than four decades, YES has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, stretching the boundaries of progressive art-rock with songs such as Roundabout, Owner of a Lonely Heart and I've Seen All Good People creating dynamic instrumental contrasts and abstract lyrics.
Their symphonic use of sound and innovative musical styles continues to make them one of the most successful and long-standing groups in rock history. Their amazing career continues to defy many of their contemporaries, as they continue to add new, young fans to their following.
Joining Yes is U.K. prog-rock band, Procol Harum. Their debut single, a classically-based piece, A Whiter Shade of Pale, captured the imagination in a way that few singles do and spent a month at the top of the UK charts and became a million-seller. Follow-ups Conquistador and Simple Sister are considered classics and among the best of the UK prog-rock movement.
