Former Yes members Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman have announced a 2017 UK tour.

The trio confirmed last month that they’d joined forces under the banner of Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman (ARW) and revealed they were working on an album and announced a run of North American shows.

Now they’ve added a run of nine UK shows, which kicks off in Cardiff on March 12 next year.

The trio last collaborated during Yes’ Union tour.

Anderson said: “To be able to sing and perform with Rick and Trevor at this time in my life is a treasure beyond words.

“I’m so excited to create new music and revisit some of the classic work we created many years ago. It’s going to be a musical adventure on so many new levels.”

Tickets for the UK dates go on sale at 10am on June 24 (Friday) via MyTicket and SeeTickets.

ARW are currently working on the as-yet-untitled album.
