Earlier this month Yes announced they’d revisit 1974’s Relayer on an eight date 2020 UK tour.

Now Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, Billy Sherwood, Jay Schellen and Jon Davison have added 24 European shows to their Album Series 2020 Tour, which will take place throughout April and May next year.

Yes will perform two sets each night, with the first featuring a selection of classics from the band’s back catalogue, while the second set will see the band play Relayer in full.

Howe says: “We are really looking forward to playing all of the Relayer album. Having premiered The Gates Of Delirium this year, we continue by expanding our Album Series with all the tracks: The Gates Of DeliriumSound Chaser and To Be Over.

“During the first half of the evening we'll be performing a refined selection from Yes' enormous 50 year-plus repertoire. See you there!”  

Artist Roger Dean, will also attend every show on the tour and hold an exhibition of some of his iconic artwork.

Last week, it was revealed that Yes had released a mini box set titled From A Page which contains four previously unreleased tracks from 2010 when the Yes lineup consisted of Benoît David, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Oliver Wakeman and Alan White.

The collection also features the live album In The Present: Live From Lyon which was recorded in the French city in 2009 and originally released the following year.

Now Oliver Wakeman has shared a lyric video for the single mix of To The Moment which can be found below along with all Yes’ 2020 tour dates.
