Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Categories: 
 
Grammy Award-winning bass guitarist, vocalist, and founding member of Yes, Chris Squire, has been diagnosed with Acute Erythroid Leukemia (AEL), an uncommon form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Chris will be receiving treatment in his hometown of Phoenix over the next few months.

Yes will be honoring their commitment to their North American summer tour with Toto, as well as confirming their performances on the Cruise To The Edge in November.

Chris's role in the band will be covered by Yes alumnus Billy Sherwood.

To quote Chris, "This will be the first time since the band formed in 1968 that Yes will have performed live without me. But the other guys and myself have agreed that Billy Sherwood will do an excellent job of covering my parts and the show as a whole will deliver the same Yes experience that our fans have come to expect over the years."
 
MelodicRock.com wishes Chris all the very best and a speedy recovery.

ICONIC PROG ROCK BAND YES SET TO RELEASE
“LIKE  IT IS - YES AT THE BRISTOL HIPPODROME”
 
2CD/DVD set will be released in
December on Frontiers
 
Frontiers Music Srl, the Italian-based label known for embracing new music from world famous rock artists, is proud to announce the upcoming release by the legendary rock group YES, entitled LIKE IT IS -  YES AT THE BRISTOL HIPPODROME on December 5th in Europe and December 9th in North America.
 
Available in 2CD/DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats, this new release encompasses two of the band’s iconic albums, 1971’s The YES Album  and  1977’s Going For The One,  as they were performed live on the band’s 2014 world tour.
 
 
Says guitarist Steve Howe, "Playing complete albums is a great way to hear the development of YES music & relive the familiar transitions from one track to another.” Expertly executed, these two classic albums are performed in their entirety, respecting the original arrangements, and yet still adding a new and exciting flair. “Going For The One is a wonderfully diverse set of songs, whilst The Yes Album contains the most ‘played live’ songs in the career of the band,” complements Howe.
 
Featuring some of the band’s most popular songs, such as ‘I’ve See All Good People,’ ‘Yours Is No Disgrace,’ ‘Going For The One,’  ‘Wonderous Stories,’ and ‘Starship Trooper,’ this set proves the endurance factor of one of England’s most acclaimed rock bands.
 
            “These are two bodies of music that many of the most devout YES fans wanted to hear in their entirety,” adds keyboardist Geoff Downes. “I believe our performance at the Bristol Hippodrome was among the most compelling of the entire tour.”
 
            The CD/DVD set comes as YES continues one of its most fertile musical periods in its nearly five decade history. Formed in 1968, the band has endured a number of line-ups and remains one of the most popular live touring bands in rock, today. Over 40 million record sales later, the band continues to tour and release current material on a regular basis.

YES Songs From Tsongas – The 35th Anniversary Concert Special Edition Formats Out September 23

Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Categories: 
New York, NY (July 21, 2014)-- Eagle Rock Entertainment is proud to announce the September 23 simultaneous release of Yes’ Songs From Tsongas - The 35th Anniversary Concert - Special Edition on 2DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Formats, and the first ever release of Songs From Tsongas as a 3CD set. [Pre-book Order Date August 29, MSRP $19.98 Blu-ray, $24.98 DVD, $TBA CD]. 
 
The Special Edition of Songs From Tsongas contains two different concerts from Yes’ 35th Anniversary Tour in 2004, the last tour to feature the classic line-up of Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman and Alan White. In addition to the originally released Songs From Tsongas show, this DVD is packed with an additional 70 minutes of never-before-released highlights from Lugano. Songs From Tsongas offers a fantastic set list of favorites and rarities including “Going For The One,” “Roundabout,” “Owner Of A Lonely Heart,” “And You And I,” “Starship Trooper,” “Wonderous Stories,” “I’ve Seen All Good People,” “Yours Is No Disgrace,” “Ritual,” “Turn Of The Century,” and many more captured here in all their glory.
 
Disc One of the Special Edition DVD contains the whole concert from the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Massachusetts, previously spread across two discs. This epic show features tracks from across the band’s career including an extensive acoustic section (tracks 11 – 18) and some tracks that have rarely been performed live. This entire concert is featured on the Songs From Tsongas 3CD.
 
Disc Two features a very different concert on the same tour filmed at Estival in Lugano, Switzerland. This outdoor show has a stripped down stage and full on rock versions of the acoustic tracks from Tsongas while the crowd wield a multitude of umbrellas against the pouring rain, which is clearly not preventing them having a great time!
 
As a Bonus Feature, the DVD includes another track “Ritual,” also filmed at the Tsongas Arena, and an insightful interview with legendary designer and Yes collaborator Roger Dean who created the brand new stage set for the shows.
 
Songs From Tsongas – The 35th Anniversary Concert is an incredible collection that no Yes fan should be without!
