Yes map tour with Massachusetts stop

, Staff

Yes have revealed plans to return to the road in March for a month-long tour of North America. The progressive rock veterans will make their way to Massachusetts for a show at the Zeiterion Theatre in New Bedford on Tuesday, March 29. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $49 to $79, are now on sale through the venue’s box office and website.

The English rockers, who have been working on a new album in Los Angeles, are expected to deliver a set filled with greatest hits including material off classic albums such as Fragile, Close to the Edge, Drama and 90125. Yes is currently comprised of guitarist Steve Howe, bassist Chris Squire, and drummer Alan White, as well as Oliver Wakeman (son of Rick Wakeman) on keyboards and lead singer Benoit David, who replaced original frontman Jon Anderson it the fall of 2008.

“Having the two new guys in the line-up has inspired the impetus behind the need for Yes to return to the studio,” explained Chris Squire in a press release, while Steve Howe added, “The new lineup has shown that we can operate well as a touring band, so now to expand that to recording would broaden our repertoire and the inclusion of Oliver and Benoit on new recordings will show a new leaf in Yes music’s continuing development.”

Following their show in Massachusetts, Yes will play the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom in New Hampshire on Friday, April 1. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $35 to $60, are now on sale through Ticketmaster.

Earlier this year, Yes released Union Live, a live concert CD & DVD. The concert film of the band was filmed at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, on August 8, 1991 as the band toured in support of the Union album. The DVD includes several bonus features including footage from other shows from that tour.
