Anderson Ponty Band announce spring North American tour

The Anderson Ponty band have announced a North American tour for this spring.

The band, which includes former Yes vocalist Jon Anderson and violinist and jazz fusion violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, will embark on an 18-date trek in the US and Canada in April and May.

They’re touring to promote their 2015 CD/DVD Better Late Than Never, which was recorded at the Aspen Wheeler Opera House in Colorado in 2014.

Ponty said: “Collaborating with Jon is unlike any project I have done before. The result is way beyond my expectations – we are not just rehashing the past, but giving a new life to the music we started developing decades ago.”

Meanwhile, Anderson and his former Yes bandmates Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman are currently writing material for their unnamed supergroup project. Further details will be revealed in due course.
