Close To The Edge 50 + Rock Is Here Progressive Tour

Si son fans del Rock Progresivo Brit√°nico , el plato est√° servido porque si tienen tickets para la gira de Yes por el Reino Unido de este a√Īo – la ‘Album Series’ postergada por la pandemia- esta es una linda noticia. Yes ha anunciado un cambio en su pr√≥xima gira The Album Series Tour por el Reino Unido, y ahora celebrar√°n el 50 aniversario de su ic√≥nico √°lbum Close To The Edge , que se lanz√≥ en 1972. Y nuestro tour progresivo en Londres te lleva incluso al sitio donde se grab√≥ este disco inmortal, entre otros sitios increibles relacionados con la banda, inclusive el lugar donde ensayaban en sus dias tempranos.

Esta gira, reprogramada dos veces debido a la pandemia, originalmente tenía la intención de mostrar el álbum Relayer de 1974 de la banda, pero ahora contará con Close To The Edge , interpretado en su totalidad, junto con otras pistas clásicas del extenso repertorio de la banda.

El espectáculo comprenderá una producción completa y un videowall de alta definición dirigido por Roger Dean , quien también se unirá a la gira con una exhibición de arte relacionado con Yes. Una interpretación completa del álbum de Relayer ahora se presentará en una gira futura en The Album Series.

‚ÄúLlegamos a un nivel muy alto haciendo¬†Close To The Edge¬†‚ÄĚ, dice¬†Steve Howe¬†. ¬ęValoramos la maestr√≠a musical, las ideas art√≠sticas y la vocalizaci√≥n que aporta la gente y es por eso que todav√≠a lo estamos haciendo, ¬°porque es emocionante hacerlo!¬†Close To The Edge¬†fue votado como el √°lbum m√°s progresivo que jam√°s se haya hecho. Fue muy experimental. Ya hab√≠amos hecho epopeyas de 10 minutos, pero con¬†Close To The Edge¬†lo llevamos un paso m√°s all√° y estoy muy contento de que hayamos sido lo suficientemente valientes como para hacerlo¬Ľ.

If you are a fan of British Progressive Rock, this is for you because if you have tickets for this year’s UK tour of Yes – the ‘Album Series’ postponed by the pandemic – this is good news. Yes have announced a change to their upcoming The Album Series Tour of the UK, and they will now celebrate the 50th anniversary of their iconic Close To The Edge album, which was released in 1972. And our progressive tour in London even takes you -among other amazing places, including the place where they used to rehearse during their early days- to the site where this immortal album was recorded.

¬†This tour, twice rescheduled due to the Covid pandemic was intended to showcase YES‚Äė 1974 classic¬†‚ÄúRelayer‚Ä̬†album but will now feature ‚ÄúClose to the Edge‚ÄĚ, performed in full, along with other classic tracks from¬†YES‚Äė extensive catalogue.An announcement regarding the European dates will be made shortly.

The tour line-up features Steve Howe (guitars), Alan White (drums), Geoff Downes (keyboards), Jon Davison (vocals), Billy Sherwood (bass guitar and backing vocals) with additional drums and percussion by Jay Schellen. All tour dates are as previously announced and all tickets remain valid. A full performance of the ‚ÄúRelayer‚ÄĚ album will now be featured in a future tour in The Album Series.

The show will comprise full production and a high-definition video wall directed by Roger Dean who will also be joining the tour with an exhibition of YES related art.

Following the release of¬†The Yes Album¬†and¬†Fragile, in 1971,¬†YES¬†released what is widely considered one of the most defining albums, not only for¬†YES¬†but for the whole progressive movement. ‚ÄúClose to the Edge‚ÄĚ became an inspiration for their contemporaries and for successive generations of musicians.

Steve Howe:¬†‚ÄúWe reached a real high, doing Close To The Edge, we valued the musicianship, the artistic ideas and the vocalising that people bring and that‚Äôs why we‚Äôre still doing it, because it‚Äôs exciting to do! Close To The Edge was voted the most-proggy album possibly ever made. It was very experimental. We had already done 10-minute epics but with Close To The Edge we just took it a stage further and I‚Äôm very pleased we were brave enough to do that.‚ÄĚ
