Yes, the legendary pioneers of progressive rock have announced a concert at The NEC Arena as part of their forthcoming 35th anniversary UK tour. In recognition of their 35th anniversary, Yes play The NEC Arena on Friday 18 June 2004. Yes are one of the most important and influential groups in the history of popular music. From the very beginning, when Chris Squire and Jon Anderson first rehearsed together in the basement of a West End shop in London, Yes has defined its own musical genre and gone on to enjoy an enduring and creative career. Unique among its peers for its level of musicianship, Yes were pioneers in its approach to studio recording as well as their live performances. Their influence continues to be admired by musicians and fans of music around the world. Throughout its career, Yes have created a musical vocabulary all its own - from epic 20 minute songs to live performances that broke new ground, the group continue to create a sonic environment that is at once revered and inimitable. Simply put, there will never be another Yes. The fact that Yes has been able to endure and grow through five decades and several different line-ups is as a testament to its strength. It is with that background in mind that Yes now wish to reward their many fans with the announcement of a special commemorative 35th Anniversary tour to kick off in 2004. Starting with dates in Europe in June and July of next year, Yes will embark upon a series of Arena dates that will feature extended performances from the band that span their career, as well as unique stage designs and production in association with long-time artist and visual collaborator Roger Dean that will be reminiscing of the groundbreaking stage shows of the early 1970’s. The Ultimate YES: 35th Anniversary Collection is also being released on 28 July to commemorate 35 years of outstanding, groundbreaking music by one of rock’s most legendary acts. This special two disc set will feature many of the bands most notable songs, as well as new artwork and album design by Roger Dean. Additionally, Classic Pictures have completed principal filming of the bands most recent tour for an upcoming behind the scenes look at YES. This documentary, filmed exclusively on the band’s most recent Full Circle Tour, will take a never before seen look at the world of YES and what it takes to continue on as one of rock’s most influential acts.
