Yes - Yes 50 live 4LP
British band Yes were formed back in 1968 and released their first studio album Yes released on 25th July the following year.
To celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2018 they toured extensively in Europe and North America and have just returned from a tour of Japan.
We are proud to announce a new live album, Yes 50 Live which was recorded on the US leg of the tour with majority of the album coming from two dates at The Fillmore in Philadelphia on 20th and 21st July 2018 where there were 10 member of Yes on stage together, present members Steve Howe, Geoff Downes, Alan White, Billy Sherwood and Jon Davison were joined by Jay Schellen, Tony Kaye, Patrick Moraz, Tom Brislin and Trevor Horn.
Yes 50 Live will be released on 19th July 2019, as a 4LP set (7 sides audio, 1 side etched), 2CD with a new cover painting by Roger Dean and 8 page booklet in both LP and CD version with photographs by the Gottlieb Brothers. The live performances on YES 50 LIVE seamlessly weave together several eras from the band’s past with songs from 10 different studio albums recorded between 1970 and 2011. Naturally, the collection highlights some of the group’s most important music, including “Starship Trooper,” from The Yes Album (1971), “Roundabout” from Fragile (1971) and the title track from Close to the Edge (1972). But the new live album also highlights some of Yes’ most adventurous work with an excerpt from “The Ancient,” a track that appeared on 1973’s Tales From Topographic Oceans, and “Soon,” which is the final section in “The Gates Of Delirium” from 1974’s Relayer.
Yes will headline a North American tour, “The Royal Affair Tour” in June and July 2019 celebrating 50 Years of Yes tour, this best-of-British-rock show will also feature Asia with the return of founding member Steve Howe in a special performance, John Lodge of The Moody Blues, and Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy with guest vocals by Arthur Brown.
