Yes will embark on a 35-date 50th anniversary tour this summer with a date at the Warner Theatre on Monday, July 23. And in a special appearance, founding keyboardist Tony Kaye will join the band during an extended encore for signature songs such as “Yours Is No Disgrace,” “Roundabout,” and “Starship Trooper.” Mark your calendars for this epic show!
Since the passing of the late, great Chris Squire, Yes consists of Steve Howe (guitar), Alan White (drums), Geoff Downes (keyboards), Jon Davison (vocals), and Billy Sherwood (bass, vocals). Co-founder Tony Kaye had stints in Yes from 1968-71 and 1983-95.

The #YES50 cross-country “Evening with YES” trek receiving critical praise for the band, which was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last year. Of their recent show in Anaheim, California, Shawn Perry said in a review for Vintage Rock that Yes “proved the bar has been set high.” In a review for Highwire Daze, Ken Morton called the Los Angeles show “the concert of a lifetime,” adding, “YES at 50 presents each and every member at the height of their creative energies, unleashing timeless compositions that will remain within our consciousness for an eternity. Do not miss YES 50 when they arrive to captivate your town with their thrilling auditory tapestries!”
On June 29, Warner Music released Yes: The Steven Wilson Remixes, a five-album vinyl set featuring remixes of five classic Yes studio albums: The Yes Album (1971), Fragile (1971), Close to the Edge (1972), Tales from Topographic Oceans (1973), and Relayer (1974).
The set includes new artwork created by Roger Dean, with new cover art for Close to the Edge and Tales from Topographic Oceans and reworked art by Roger for the remaining three covers.
In a 10 out of 10 review for Classic Rock magazine, Fraser Lewry said, “The five-album run from The Yes Album to Relayer is one of rock’s greatest. This is music that is aspirational, inspirational, and often transcendent. It’s music that is beautiful, and brave, and occasionally violent. It’s music born of a giddy spirit of adventure, played by musicians operating at the absolute peak of their powers. And it’s utterly dazzling from start to finish.”
