Yes Announce UK and European Dates

UK prog-rock godfathers, Yes, have announced details of a spring 2016 European tour.

The Euro trek will feature nine shows throughout the UK and Europe with dates scheduled for Scotland, England, France, Belgium and Italy.

Next year's spring dates will see Yes perform both 1971's "Fragile" and 1980's "Drama" albums from start to finish, with the later being performed for the first time in its entirety.

"This is the first time we'll be performing Drama on its entirety. Most of the songs haven't been performed in some 30 years", says guitarist Steve Howe.

In related Yes news, the band's founding bassist Chris Squire is currently receiving treatment for a rare form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in his adopted hometown of Phoenix, Arizona.
