Jon Anderson To Perform At Sadler's Wells
Music legend and original YES vocalist and songwriter Jon Anderson will be playing special one-off concert on August 8th at the Sadler's Wells Theater in London. This will be the first time Jon has performed in the UK since his successful tour with Rick Wakeman in 2010. “The concert in London is with the Slovakian Chamber Orchestra with the help of my good friend composer Peter Machajdik plus a semi acoustic group I performed with a couple of years ago in Bratislava,” says Jon. “ 'Concert for Earth and Peace' – the show will be around one hour long, with classic YES songs, and Vangelis songs, plus 'Earth and Peace', a new song written with the music of Austin Haynes, and some surprises.” Also performing, Miro Zbirka from Slovakia, a celebrated singer/songwriter with a career spanning 40 years.
