Let the Yestival begin!

Veteran rock band Yes announced it will hit the road this August for a tour dubbed “Yestival.”  The announcement was made during the band’s appearance Wednesday on Sirius XM’s exclusive in-studio audience event SiriusXM Volume Presents an Artist Confidential with YES.

The nearly monthlong tour begins with a pair of dates in North Carolina on August 4 and 5 in Greensboro and Boone.  Todd Rundgren will be a special guest on the tour. Also announced as support will be Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy.

After finishing its short stint in the Tarheel State, the band will perform a handful of dates in the northeast and then make its way to the Midwest for the tour’s second leg.  The tour’s final leg will take the band to the southwest and west coast.  The band’s full tour schedule is noted below.
