Boston, MA – Citi Performing Arts Center, The Madison Square Garden Company and Larry Magid Entertainment announced today that Jon Anderson, Trevon Rabin and Rick Wakeman will reform the definitive YES line-up as Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman, and will take the Wang Theatre stage on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at 8:00PM for An Evening of YES Music & More. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 3, 2016 at 10:00AM
Since they last played together in 1990 on the highly successful YES 'Union Tour', there have been various hybrid versions of the band. However, none featured the iconic voice of Jon Anderson, the outstanding guitar talent of Trevor Rabin, and the keyboard wizardry of Rick Wakeman. The aim of the band will be to restore the standard of excellence in performance that they established with their 1990 shows – which saw YES members past and present come together for the first (and only) time of the legendary band's career.
"To be able to sing and perform with Rick and Trevor at this time in my life is a treasure beyond words," explains Jon. "I'm so excited to create new music and revisit some of the classic work we created many years ago, it's going to be a musical adventure on so many new levels."
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, June 3 at 10:00AM and are available at the Citi Performing Arts Center Box Office, citicenter.org, or by calling (800) 982 – ARTS (2787).
