Critical Praise For YES’ 2013 Tour:

“…the music was as rich and challenging and mesmerizing as ever, glacial one moment, grooving the next. Few bands that have lasted this long can say the same, let alone actually do justice to past glories. But that’s just Yes, bucking logic yet still proving exceptional.” – Ben Wener, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 3/7/13

“Where other prog-rockers try to be classical musicians, [Steve] Howe delivered an unpretentious blend of jazz, blues, flamenco and folk. The results were often stunning.” – Thor Christensen, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 3/22/13

“Yes demonstrated why they remain one of the most vaunted and respected musical forces in progressive rock among both fans and players alike…The well-oiled rhythm section of drummer Alan White and bassist Chris Squire provided many subtle flourishes, as did keyboardist Geoff Downes…Singer Jon Davison, now a year into his role as front man, demonstrated from the outset that he is more than up to the task…At one time it was about exploration, experimentation and an elegant, seamless blending of many musical styles into one space-age storm that remains inspired, atmospheric and very hard to categorize. This was a feast for the followers; faithful renditions for the many die hard starship troopers that were no doubt reliving many scrapbook Yes memories over the years. But the show was not about mere nostalgia. This is a band that still feels strangely new, simply by doing what they do, pushing the boundaries and presenting songs that, like the wildly colorful and original Roger Dean artwork that represents them, are just beautifully designed and built to last (3/7/13).” – Chris Epting, AOL’s NOISECREEP.COM, 3/17/13

“Yes was fabulous in every musical aspect.” – Anna Blanton, LOUISVILLE.COM, 3/18/13

“For ‘Awaken,’ [Chris] Squire brandished his triple-neck bass, adding just the right touches to one of the night’s most epic pieces.” – Shawn Perry, VINTAGEROCK.COM, 3/11/13

“A YES show is not just a concert, but it is a musical journey.” – Alex Kluft, EXAMINER.COM, 3/17/13
