YES Legend Jon Anderson w/ The Paul Green Rock Academy “Close to the Edge” 50th Anniversary Tour 2022!
Performing “Close to the Edge” in its entirety, along with other classics and surprises!
Legendary YES vocalist/songwriter Jon Anderson will be playing select shows with The Paul Green Rock Academy - Jon and the ensemble will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the release of YES’s classic album “Close to the Edge”
The Jon Anderson with The Paul Green Rock Academy tour is a resumption of the tradition started in 2005 when Jon toured with Paul Green’s original School of Rock all stars.
These early shows, over 30 in total between 2006-2008, were nothing short of magical, and now Jon Anderson returns to continue that magic with a set of Yes Classics, deep cuts, mash ups, and solo works, all with lush arrangements featuring choral singing, horns, and all the other benefits of having a backing band with 25 young musicians.
There are so many wonderful moments in my musical life, and being on stage with these young teenagers performing Classic Yes songs, makes me so happy and proud …..
