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.

As the members of YES prepare for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Class of 2017--Friday, April 7 at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, NY--drummer ALAN WHITE looks back on the band's nearly 50-year history and what's still to come for one of the world's most influential, ground-breaking, and respected progressive rock bands.

Anderson, Rabin, and Wakeman (ARW) took the stage Sunday night at San Francisco’s Masonic Auditorium to an enraptured crowd. There have been numerous configurations of the Yes lineup, yet perhaps none that so perfectly encapsulates the band’s journey through various eras.

Back in 1990, three former YES band members, vocalist Jon Anderson, guitarist Trevor Rabin and keyboardist Rick Wakeman rejoined forces for the successful YES ‘Union Tour’. In 2010, the three talents decided to create their own band, which they named ARW (Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman). As their 2016 tour promised, their aim was to play YES hits and more. YES was formed originally in 1968 by Anderson and the late bassist Chris Squire.

YES has once again been nominated for induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame following two previous nominations. It was announced this morning (10/18) that the band is on the ballot for the class of 2017.

"It is a distinguished honor to again receive a nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame," shares drummer Alan White. "Yes has a history of being pioneers in exploring new musical territory, 48 years later the band is still continuing this quest, who knew? Thank you for the consideration of this esteemed award."

YES is excited to announce that drummer Alan White, who had to sit out the band's recent U.S. summer tour due to back surgery, will officially rejoin his band mates Steve Howe (guitar), Jon Davison (vocals), Billy Sherwood (bass) and Geoff Downes (keyboard) on their Japanese tour this November.

Following the hugely successful launch of their North America tour, which kicked off last week to rave reviews, former YES members Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman (ARW) have announced a second London date to their 2017 March UK tour.
 

On Wednesday, August 31, quintessential rock and roll pioneers YES descended from their London based headspace and gave The Mountain Winery of Saratoga, CA a theatrical spectacle to remember.

YES officially kicks off their 2016 U.S. summer tour, billed as "The Album Series: Drama + Topographic 1 & 4," this Monday, July 25 in Lancaster, PA. The 28-date outing will feature the 1980 album DRAMA performed in its entirety, for the first time ever, and sides one and four of 1973's double album TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS, plus a selection of their greatest hits.
