Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes and Jon Davison will perform “The Yes Album,” “Close to the Edge” and Going for The One” in their entirety.
Montrealer Benoit David, known for his work with his band Mystery and the Yes tribute act Close To The Edge, takes on the lead vocal role for “Fly From Here.”

On tour and ready to release a new album, the current Yes lineup consists of three recognizable names and a few new ones: vocalist Benoit David and keyboardist Oliver Wakeman.
Frontiers will release a special edition live CD/DVD box set from Asia: SPIRIT OF THE NIGHT-THE PHOENIX TOUR LIVE IN CAMBRIDGE 2009 will be released March 8th

In August 2001, when this interview took place, Yes guitarist Steve Howe had just released his first all-acoustic solo studio album, Natural Timbre. In addition, he had recently helped out on two tracks on Asia’s Aura LP.
Known for his clever, imaginative guitar work, Howe remains one of the most influential guitar players the progressive-rock genre has ever produced. And he had a lot to say about Yes and the band’s bold fashion statements, his work on Queen’s “Innuendo” and his time in Asia.
