...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

YES Announce 2016 Summer Tour

YES announced today (4/11) their 2016 summer touring plans. Billed as "The Album Series: Drama + Topographic 1 & 4," the tour will feature the 1980 album DRAMA performed in its entirety, for the first time ever, and sides one and four of 1973's double album TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS, plus a selection of their greatest hits.
"We are proud to present the American public with forward-looking albums from the past," says guitarist Steve Howe of the iconic and influential band. "Promoting 'Drama' at Madison Square Garden on multi-nights was a career milestone in 1980, and we are especially looking forward to performing both the opening and closing sides to 'Topographic Oceans.'" Adds keyboardist Geoff Downes: "One minute, Trevor Horn and I were in The Buggles, the next we joined Yes, then we were in Madison Square Garden playing 'Drama.'" Expresses drummerAlan White: "We really hit the ground running with 'Topographic Oceans,' my first recorded album with Yes. It pushed boundaries of music and went to number 1 in the UK."
The band's annual summer outing will take them throughout the U.S. from late July through early September, beginning July 27 in Columbus, OHYES will then stop in such cities as Atlantic City, Wallingford, Westbury, Staten Island, Morristown, Washington, DC, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Denver, Las Vegas, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Saratoga and Reno before wrapping September 4 in San Diego.
