The Neal Morse Band will return for 2017’s edition of Cruise To The Edge, while Patrick Moraz will make his debut appearance.

They’re the first artists – alongside Argentinian outfit Bad Dreams – to be named for Yes’s five-day festival aboard the Royal Caribbean Brilliance Of The Seas, which sets sail from Tampa, Florida, on February 7 next year.

Organisers say: “We’re pleased to announce Neal Morse’s return. The band blew us all away with their amazing set last cruise in November.”

The 2015 edition also featured Yes, Marillion, Alan Holdsworth, Anathema, Spock’s Beard and others. Many more acts for the next event will be announced in due course, while tickets go on sale soon via the festival website.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
