Prog legends Yes will play a small club show in Devon in June as a warm-up for their upcoming The Album Series UK dates, on which the band will celebrate their Close To The Edge album in it's 50th anniversary year.

The band will play the 400-capacity The Wharf in Tavistock on June 13. The show has an early start of 6.30pm (doors open at 5pm) in which Roger Dean will present the band and conduct a Q+A, with the band then performing a two-hour live set.

Tickets are priced at £60 plus a £4.20 booking fee and are available here.

Yes recently announced that drummer Alan White would not be involved in the upcoming UK tour dates due to health  issues. His place will be taken by former World Trade and Asia drummer Jay Schellen.
