Yes confirm full Euro tour

Yes have issued their complete list of 2016 European tour dates.

They’ll continue on the road with Billy Sherwood in place of Chris Squire, who died earlier this year.

The shows will feature full performances of the band’s Fragile and Drama albums, and follow a successful US tour alongside Toto.

Guitarist Steve Howe says: “This is the first time we’ll be performing Drama in its entirety – and most of the songs haven’t been performed in 30 years.”

He adds: “It’s hard to imagine the future without Chris. He will always be in our thoughts and minds. He was a one-off, larger-than-life human being who brought a serious amount to everything he was part of.”

UK tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster.

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.
