The YES 50th Anniversary Tour starts tomorrow….. the shows will feature Trevor Horn as Special Guest The London Palladium Shows on 24th and 25th March and the Paris Show on 30th March.
This is the last chance for fans to see YES perform sides 1 & 4 (and an excerpt from Side 3) of iconic 1973 album Tales from Topographic Oceans – the first YES album to top the UK charts. Yes will, of course, be performing classic hits as well! It will also be the last chance for fans to experience Roger Deans spectacular Tales From Topographic Oceans video artwork, as it is set to be retired after the current run of dates.
The Officially endorsed not-for-profit Yes Fans Convention has some tickets available at £30 a head. It takes place over the weekend of March 24th & 25th at the London Palladium; the venue for the UK tours final two shows.

It will also host the launch party for the remixed version of YES 2011 album Fly From Here – Return Trip featuring newly recorded vocals by the albums legendary producer Trevor Horn, as well as a bonus new track. It is the much-anticipated return of the Drama line-up.
This new version of Fly From Here Return Trip is being released independently by the band via the Pledge Music platform (pre orders available at: https://yesthedramalineup.pmstores.co), alongside being available for sale at the convention.
