YES indeed: Prog-rock icons announce 2014 Summer Tour

Proving once again that the only thing better than a live album from a legendary band is a live performance of a legendary album by a legendary band, bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes and singer Jon Davison – more affirmatively known as YES – announced a 35-date 2014 Summer Tour yesterday, March 24.
