Yes have rescheduled their Album Series UK tour.

The band were due to head out on the road this month, opening at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall on May 26 – but those plans have been shelved due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The new shows, which will see Yes celebrate their 1974 album Relayer by playing it in its entirety, will now take place in 2021 – with the first date at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on May 16.

Yes drummer Alan White explains: “Many things have changed in the world these past few months. My appreciation for the freedoms we’ve enjoyed in the past has grown along with my gratitude for all the people caring for humanity throughout the world.

"I can’t wait to be on stage again in front of real audiences playing Yes music. I’m hoping we can bring some joy and positivity back into our lives.

"Please take care and stay safe, we want to see our many fans and friends again in 2021.”

Tickets purchased for the 2020 shows will remain valid for the 2021 dates.

Each night will see Yes play two sets. The first will see the band perform a selection of classic tracks, while the second will see Relayer played in full.
