YES will be touring 2 of their seminal albums in their entirety “Fragile” and “Drama” together with a bunch of classic YES tracks including Owner of a Lonely Heart And Starship Trooper during a 10 date UK tour in April and May which hits Manchester Apollo on 30th April and finishes at the Royal Albert Hall on 10th May.
Their last UK tour in 2014 totally sold out.
This will be the first time the band have performed in the UK since bass player and founder member Chris Squire passed away in June last year with acute erythroid leukaemia. Chris was the one constant member in every line-up of the band over the last 47 years since he formed them in 1968 with Jon Anderson. Billy Sherwood took over bass duties on tour last year when Chris was taken ill. He was a member of YES between 1997 to 2000 when he played guitar.
