If you’re an “Owner Of A Lonely Heart,” or already “Seen All Good People,” we come bearing good news.
Classic rock legends Yes are taking their hits and tracks from their new album “Mirror To The Sky” all over North America on their 26-concert ‘Classic Tales Of Yes Tour’ from September through November.
The band — which has been playing together for over 50 years — still has a few tricks up their sleeve too.
“We are committed to pushing new boundaries and are very excited to be performing another chapter in the rich legacy of the band,” said keyboardist Geoff Downes.

Yes band members
According to Yes’ official tour announcement on Instagram, the band will be made up of Steve Howe (guitars, vocals), Geoff Downes (keyboards), Jon Davison (vocals, acoustic guitar), Billy Sherwood (bass guitar, vocals), and Jay Schellen (drums).
Schellen replaces long-time drummer Alan White who passed away in 2022.
Yes new music
This past May, the band dropped their 23rd studio album “Mirror To The Sky.”
Made up of nine songs over two discs, the record sounds distinctly Yes-ian.
There’s your requisite falsetto vocals, extended keyboard solos and mid-song tempo changes.
And yes, most songs run four to 14 minutes long.
That being said, the highlight here is the 14-minute bluesy title track although we’re also partial to the contemplative “Circles of Time.”
If you want to hear the record for yourself, you can find “Mirror To The Sky” right here, right now.
Yes art installation
At all shows, fans will have the opportunity to peruse an on-site gallery by celebrated English artist and designer Roger Dean.
Dean, 78, is the mastermind behind the band’s evocative album covers and posters.
To keep up with what he’s working on these days, you can follow Dean on Instagram here.
