Legendary progressive rock band YES to perform in Tallinn in spring
On May 11th 2020, the legendary british progressive rock band YES will perform at Alexela Concert Hall in Tallinn. Tickets to their only show in the Baltics will be on sale this Wednesday, 30.10 at 11.00.
British progressive rock band YES will perform in Tallinn next spring, on May 11th during their The Album Series 2020 Tour. The show will feature their 1974 “Relayer” album in its entirety together with a selection of other classic YES favourites.
This tour follows their 2018 highly successful #YES50 Anniversary tour and again features the line-up of Steve Howe (guitars), Alan White (drums), Geoff Downes (keyboards), Billy Sherwood (bass guitar and backing vocals), Jon Davison (vocals) and Jay Schellen (additional drums and percussion).
The show will comprise two sets by the band with full production and a high definition video wall. The first will feature favourite classic tracks from YES’ extensive catalogue. The second will feature “Relayer”, the seventh studio album by YES, and one of the band’s most distinctive. “Relayer” marked a slight change in direction as Patrick Moraz replaced Rick Wakeman on keyboards bringing an edgier, avant-garde feel to the album. Released in late 1974 on Atlantic Records, “Relayer” continued YES’ success reaching number 4 in the UK album chart and number 5 in the US Billboard chart.
Alan White comments: “”Relayer” I believe, is one of the most creative and interesting musical compilations in the bands repertoire. Challenging and extremely enjoyable to play, I’m happy to be bringing this music back to live stages throughout Europe. I hope all who attend our shows will enjoy these cuts as much as we like performing them for our audiences.”
Formed in 1968 by Jon Anderson and the late, and much-missed, Chris Squire, YES have been one of the most innovative, influential and best-loved bands in rock music history. Their 1970s albums The Yes Album, Fragile, Close To The Edge, Yessongs (a triple live album set), Tales From Topographic Oceans, Relayer and Going For The One were ground-breaking in musical style and content. Their music also became synonymous with artist Roger Dean whose distinctive YES logo design and artwork adorned the lavish gatefold presentation sleeves of many YES albums.
With sales of over 50 million records, the Grammy-award winning YES were inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2017 where they performed Roundabout from the album Fragile and the FM radio-friendly Owner Of A Lonely Heart from the 1985 album 90125.
YES will perform in Tallinn at Alexela Concert Hall on May 11th 2020. Tickets will be available at Piletilevi this Wednesday, 30.10 at 11.00.
