Yes - 50

One of, if not THE, biggest progressive rock bands in the world has announced a major tour for the spring. That's NEXT spring, by the way.

Yes, the British collective formed in the '70s and famed for extensively lengthy album-tracks (often one 12" vinyl side in size, or twenty minutes in length) have regrouped themselves for what promises to be a special tour.

Already set to take place in the U.S., Canada and South America throughout the year, Yes's classic album tour will then swing by Europe in 2014. For your ticket price, set at around £37.50, you'll get THREE of their classic albums performed in their entirety, starting with the band's third set, 1971's "The Yes Album", which reached #4 and featured "I've Seen All Good People" and the epic "Yours Is No Disgrace".

Following this, you'll be treated to 1972's "Close to the Edge" (another #4 hit) which includes the single "And You and I" and the side-long title-track, plus the #1 album "Going For The One", which earned Yes their first and biggest hit-single to date, "Wonderous Stories".

Dates confirmed so far include Oxford on 29th April 2014, Southend, Glasgow, Newcastle and many more, including London's Royal Albert Hall on 8th May, until a rare show in Bristol on 11th May.

Tickets are available now, priced from around £37.50. Demand is expected to be high for a band that still features key members Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Buggles/Asia luminary Geoff Downes - you can also expect a fairly lengthy concert!
