Yes to Play Entire ‘Fragile,’ ‘Close to the Edge’ Albums on Summer 2014 Tour

(Ultimate Classic Rock) - Yes will give fans a taste of their forthcoming studio effort as part of the encore on a new 35-date U.S. summer tour. Also featured at every show will be two of their most recognizable 1970s-era recordings, performed in their entirety.

The legendary progressive rock band will perform 1971′s ‘Fragile’ and 1972′s ‘Close to the Edge‘ this time around. This is similar to previous recent tours, where they played 1971′s ‘The Yes Album,’ ‘Close to the Edge’ and 1977′s ‘Going for the One.’ Instead of the third album offering, Yes will do an encore of their greatest hits as well as new songs.

The tour begins in Boston on July 8 and hit most major U.S. cities before concluding Aug. 24 in Los Angeles. Yes’ full schedule can be found below. Tickets for the tour, called “An Evening with Yes,” will go on sale beginning March 28. Visit their website for more information, including the special packages that are being offered.

Yes’ new album, due July 8 via Frontiers, is titled ‘Heaven and Earth.’ Roy Thomas Baker (QueenJourney, the Cars) is serving as producer, with some additional studio assistance from 1990s-era Yes alum Billy Sherwood. The double platinum-selling ‘Fragile’ — home to ‘Roundabout’ and ‘Long Distance Runaround’ peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard charts, while ‘Close to the Edge’ crept up to No. 3 while remaining on the charts for some 32 weeks.
