Yes - Yes & Styx Team Up For Progressive Rock Super-tour
Prog-rock supergroups Yes and Styx are teaming up for a month-long summer (11) tour in North America.
The two bands will co-headline 22 dates on the Progressive U.S. Tour, which will begin on Independence Day (04Jul11) in Mountain View, California.
The concerts will give the new Yes line-up, featuring frontman Benoit David and former keyboard player Geoff Downes, a chance to perform tracks from their new Fly From Here album - their first studio release in a decade.
Sail Away rockers Styx will welcome back original bassist Chuck Panozzo for the tour.
Styx frontman Tommy Shaw tells WENN he can't wait to hit the road with his idols in Yes: "When I first heard Yes, I knew that the music world was forever changed. They took progressive rock to a place that had never been expressed in such an impressive yet accessible way.
"Who among you didn't make it a point to learn the acoustic guitar intro to (hit) Roundabout? We're very excited to tour with them for the very first time."
