Legendary YES vocalist/songwriter Jon Anderson has announced a tour with The Band Geeks in Spring 2023.
The ensemble will be performing classic YES tracks including “And You and I,” “Starship Trooper,” “Heart of the Sunrise” and epic works like “Close To The Edge,” “The Gates of Delirium,” and “Awaken”.
“It’s true, I never left YES in my heart and soul.ever!! Too many amazingly powerful memories. And of course the music never left me,” said Anderson, who left the progressive rock band in 2008. “So here I am, 77 years old, still wanting to sing the songs again, and bring MY true feelings to the lyrics. Melody and lyrics has always been my passion.I sing them now with an older and I hope wiser state of mind.”
“I’ve been wanting to have that feeling again.of performing the songs I lived for, and the music I helped to create and design, with the sound of the band of old around me once more.The first time I heard the BAND GEEKS I truly freaked out – they sound just like the classic YES of the seventies, the YES that I know and love. AND THAT’S WHAT I’M WANTING TO BRING TO YOU ON THIS TOUR..YES MUSIC IS FOREVER!!!!!!” Anderson added.
