The Royal Affair Tour 3/9/20
Following the outstanding success of their 2019 American tour, Yes are to release, 'The Royal Affair Tour, Live From Las Vegas', through BMG Records on Friday 30th October. All Yes tours are special events for their legions of fans and this was no exception, conceived as a wonderful celebration of the best of British Progressive music, with special guests Asia (with Geoff Downes, Billy Sherwood and a special appearance by Steve Howe), John Lodge of The Moody Blues and Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy featuring Arthur Brown. Consisting of Howe (guitar) who joined in 1970, Alan White, drums since 1972 (Jay Schellen played additional drums), Downes (keyboards) who first joined in 1980, Jon Davison vocalist since 2011, Sherwood, who played guitar/keyboards in the 1990's and was the late Chris Squire’s choice to take over bass/vocals in 2015, the show features many classic tracks across the period 1970 – 1980. Recorded at the Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas, the album reaches a climax with two of the best-loved Yes tracks, 'Roundabout' and 'Starship Trooper', always a high note on which to close the set!
