YES (L-R): Billy Sherwood, Jon Davison, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes.
This unbelievable throwback lineup is being dubbed “YEStival.” Prog rock gods Yes will delve into the band’s first nine records, celebrating their recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Dusting off the classics from 1971’s Fragile
to 1980’s Drama
, Yes will unload their artillery of anthemic, existentially charged rock. And they’re not going it alone. They’ve summoned multi-instrumentalist, producer extraordinaire Todd Rundgren and Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy band to honor Emerson, Lake, and Palmer’s impactful career.
Yes performs at DTE Energy Music Theatre, located at 7774 Sashabaw Rd., Clarkston, on Thursday, Aug. 17. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets start at $17.15. For more info call 248-377-0100 or go to dteenergymusictheatre.org.
