Prog rock band YES will make a stop in Gateshead as part of their 50 year anniversary tour.

The 10-date UK tour will hit The Sage in Gateshead on 18 March 2018.

YES, who were inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame in April 2017, will release “Topographic Drama – Live Across America”, a new live album, planned for later in the year.

Talking about their 50th Anniversary, Steve Howe said, “We want to mark this anniversary with a tour that encompasses some of our best loved work - we want to play things we enjoy, maybe songs we haven’t done in a while.”
