"This is a concept we've been trying to put into motion for some time, and only now we've been able to turn it into reality," says Yes bassist Chris Squire. "We're looking forward to starting Yestival out in the Philadelphia area, which has been a Yes stronghold since the '70s."
Yes is Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes and Jon Davison. Their North American tour will continue July 6 in Paso Robles, California. For more information, visit yesworld.com and the band's Facebook page.
