YES To Perform For A Special SiriusXM Broadcast Event
YES today (4/3) announced a special event with SiriusXM to celebrate the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Class of 2017, this Friday, April 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The exclusive in-studio audience event "SiriusXM Volume Presents an Artist Confidential with YES" will be hosted by David Fricke and broadcast live this Wednesday, April 5 on VOLUME, the first 24/7 talk radio channel dedicated to the discussion of music, starting at 8pm ET/5pm PT. VOLUME delivers a variety of programming including live daily shows, artist interviews, weekly specials, a music trivia game show, and in-depth docuseries hosted by the most respected, knowledgeable, and passionate people in music today - including artists themselves. The VOLUME channel (ch. 106) debuted in October 2016 on SiriusXM.
The hour-long event will feature an interview with the YES line-up of Rock Hall inductees Steve Howe (guitar) and Alan White (drums), Geoff Downes (keyboards; first joined Yes in 1980), Jon Davison (vocals since 2011) and Billy Sherwood (guitar/keyboards in the 1990s and the late Chris Squire's choice to take over bass/vocals in 2015), plus a few acoustic performances.
As they prepare for their induction, Steve Howe and Alan White recently reflected on the band's near 50-year history and what's still to come for one of the world's most influential, ground-breaking, and respected progressive rock bands.
