The iconic and Grammy-winning rock band YES will bring their triple header concert tour to the Global Spectrum-managed General Motors Centre in Oshawa, unveiling a true classic rock triple header by performing three of their classic albums in their entirety, all in one concert: 1971's The YES Album, 1972's Close to the Edge, and 1977's Going For The One. Music audiences across Canada will experience the albums--each representing an important milestone in YES' career which encompasses sales of close to 50 million albums worldwide--performed from beginning to end.
Chris Epting of Aol's NOISECREEP.COM said: "YES demonstrates why they remain one of the most vaunted and respected musical forces in progressive rock among both fans and players alike…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."
Moreover, YES is proud to provide special show packages, which include near-stage seating, a meet and greet with the band, exclusive limited-edition gifts from YES, and much more. For more information and to purchase YES packages, visit the below links.
