  YES CANCEL YESTIVAL DATES AFTER TRAGIC DEATH OF STEVE HOWE'S SON
12th September 2017



yes

Due to the tragic, unexpected death of guitarist Steve Howe's beloved younger son, Virgil, Yes have regrettably announced that the remaining dates of their Yestival Tour have been cancelled.

Ticket refunds for the affected tour dates (in Moorhead, Cedar Rapids, London, Rochester, Boston and Huntington) will be available at point of purchase.

Yes - Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, Jon Davison and Billy Sherwood - want to thank all their fans for their support and understanding at this time.

Steve Howe and family ask for their privacy to be respected during this difficult time.

Last week Yes announced their 50th Anniversary tour dates as 2018 marks half a century since the formation of the legendary group.

Together with a selection of classic Yes hits, they are scheduled to perform sides one and four and an excerpt from side three of their 1973 album 'Tales From Topographic Oceans', the first Yes album to top the UK charts.

The final weekend of the UK tour at the London Palladium on 24th and 25th March will include a 50th Anniversary fan convention and more details of the anniversary celebrations will be announced soon.

Roger Dean, whose fantastical landscapes have become synonymous with Yes albums, will unveil new 'Close To The Edge' paintings at the Palladium on March 25th.

Yes will also release 'Topographic Drama – Live Across America', a new live album, later in the year. This was recorded during their 2016/17 tours of America.

Yes 50th Anniversary tour dates:
Tuesday 13th March: Bristol, Colston Hall
Wednesday 14th March: Sheffield, City Hall
Friday 16th March: Glasgow, SEC Armadillo
Saturday 17th March: Manchester, Bridgewater Hall
Sunday 18th March: Gateshead, Sage
Tuesday 20th March: Birmingham, Symphony Hall
Wednesday 21st March: Brighton, Centre
Friday 23rd March: Liverpool, Philharmonic Hall
Saturday 24th March: London, Palladium
Sunday 25th March: London, Palladium
Tuesday 27th March: Tilburg, 013
Wednesday 28th March: Antwerp, De Roma
Friday 30th March: Paris, Olympia

Tickets are on sale now here.

Thoughts are with Steve Howe and his family at this difficult time.





NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.
