Summer Of Yes

Yes has more albums to play for you.  This time around the band will give start-to-finish renditions of two LPs – “Fragile” and “Close To The Edge.”

Currently touring Canada, Yes has been spending much of its road time devoting each evening to three albums – The Yes Album, Close To The Edge and Going For The One.

You could say Yes has been performing Close To The Edge ever since the album’s 1972 release.   The LP’s three tracks – “And You And I,” “Siberian Khatru” and the title song – are concert favorites and many a night’s performance has included all three, albeit not in the same order as on the disc.

Fragile is another story in that the band has never played the album in its entirety.
