Now, the band is back and ready to rock crowds nationwide with a 35-date summer tour featuring YES performing their 1971 groundbreaking album, “Fragile” and 1972 album “Close To The Edge” in their entirety.

“Fragile” is considered to be YES’ U.S. breakthrough album, peaking at number four on the Billboard Album charts in the U.S. The RIAA-certified, double-platinum album sold over two million copies and features YES’ hit single “Roundabout” and other classics like “Long Distance Runaround” and “Heart of the Sunrise.” It also marks the band’s first collaboration with artist Roger Dean on cover art, who has designed many of the band’s album covers and logos. The band’s album “Close To The Edge”–widely regarded as one of the greatest progressive-rock albums ever recorded–was on the U.S. charts for 32 weeks, peaking at number three. A “Rolling Stone” review noted, “YES’ colors are subtle, almost imperceptible tints, but the main strokes are bold and thick, applied with sureness and natural instinct.” Inspired by Siddhartha and their “state of mind” at the time, the Gold-certified album featuring epic suites such as “Close To The Edge” and “You And I,” was named one of the “100 Greatest Guitar Albums of All Time” by “Guitar World” (2006).
