New live set on tap for YES

The band YES will release Like it Is - YES at the Bristol Hippodrome via Frontiers Music on
Dec. 9.

Available in 2CD/DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats, it encompasses two of the band’s albums, 1971’s The YES Album and 1977’s Going For The One, as they were performed live on the band’s recent world tour.

Says guitarist Steve Howe, "Playing complete albums is a great way to hear the development of YES music and relive the familiar transitions from one track to another.” 

“'Going For The One' is a wonderfully diverse set of songs, whilst 'The Yes Album' contains the most ‘played live’ songs in the career of the band,” he continues.

See track listing below.

“These are two bodies of music that many of the most devout YES fans wanted to hear in their entirety,” adds keyboardist Geoff Downes. “I believe our performance at the Bristol Hippodrome was among the most compelling of the entire tour.”
