Former Yes singer Jon Anderson has announced further European dates in Hungary, Czech Republic, Germany and Spain in July, performing with the Paul Green Rock Academy.

Yesterday we confirmed that Anderson would play London Shepherd's Bush Empire on Saturday July 22. Full dates below. 

All dates are with the Paul Green Rock Academy with whom Anderson has been touring the US. Anderson will be performing a live set that celebrates Yes' 1972 album Close To The Edgeplaying the album in its entirety – as well as performing other classic songs and what are billed as 'surprises'.

"The one thing about creating music with young musicians and singers is the adventure of it all," said Anderson in 2021. "I sang and toured with the Paul Green School Of Rock many years ago. It was miracle for me to join in with their young energy and learn from them."

Anderson will also be touring the US with The Band Geeks in April and May, performing a set of Yes songs. Dates below.

Tickets for the London show are on sale now.
