The legendary rock group Yes will return to the Sands Bethlehem Event Center on Sunday, April 7, 2013.
In a career first, iconic and Grammy-winning rock band Yes will perform three of their classic albums in their entirety, all in one concert, on a special tour in 2013: 1971’s "The Yes Album," 1972's "Close to the Edge" and 1977's "Going for the One."
Tickets go on sale Friday Dec. 14 at 10am and can be purchased at sandseventcenter.com, the Event Center box office, Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets or by phone at 800-745-3000.
The multi-platinum progressive rock band -- bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes and singer Jon Davison -- will kick off the North American tour March 1 in West Wendover, Nev., and conclude April 12 in Detroit.
The tour will mark the first time since 1973 that Yes -- who has sold close to 50 million albums worldwide -- has performed an album onstage in its entirety.
"The Yes Album" went platinum with such signature songs as “Yours Is No Disgrace” and “I’ve Seen All Good People.” The band’s album "Close to the Edge" was on the U.S. charts for 32 weeks, peaking at No. 3. "Going for the One" went gold and featured two singles, “Wonderous Stories” (which hit #6) and the title track (#24).
