Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman toured in winter 2010/ 2011.
And performed solo aswell a lot of Yes songs.
Welcome back Jon! More news announced soon.
Check out more or hot news at www.rwcc.com.
Meanwhile Howe, Benoit, David and Oliver Wakeman have been touring in the States with Peter Frampton.
They are working on a new album, which will be recorded after Steve's duties with Asia are completed.

New tour without Jon! (2008)
Plans for a new Yes line-up: Chris Squire, Steve Howe and Alan White are arranging a new line-up of Yes with Oliver Wakeman (keys) and Benoît David (vocals). The band plan to tour North America towards the end of this year, with a break in early 2009 given Howe's prior commitments to Asia, and then further Yes touring in other markets.

Jon Anderson has posted an official statement responding to the news of the upcoming Yes tour without Jon Anderson on his website:
Disappointed, and very Disrespected.

Disappointed that, with the exception of one phone call from Alan, none of the guys have been in touch since my illness, just to find out how I am doing, and how we will foresee the future for YES. And disappointed that they were not willing to wait till 2009 when I’m fully recovered.

And I feel very disrespected, having spent most of this year creating songs and constant ideas for the band, spending time with Roger Dean creating a stage design, also working with VH1 and Sirius and XM Radio to help promote the welfare of YES.

Getting sick was not "on my radar”, and I thank my own angel Janeee and my family for helping me through this difficult time, and the many well wishers, friends and fans alike, for understanding that ''things happen''.

Of course I wish the guys all the best in their 'solo' work, but I just wish this could have been done in a more gentlemanly fashion. After all YES is a precious musical band.

This is not YES on tour...

I send best wishes to one and all,

Jon Anderson

NEWS April 2011:
Quintessential prog-rockers Yes have announced that they have reunited with legendary producer Trevor Horn for their highly anticipated new album, “Fly From Here”. The album marks the band’s first studio album in ten years.

The album originated from a conversation between Horn and Yes bassist Chris Squire, who re-discovered the song ‘Fly From Here’ and realized that it had never been recorded in a studio. “Chris and I were talking one evening about the song ‘Fly From Here’ that we never recorded,” explains Horn. “I said I was prepared to spend two weeks with Yes recording that song. When I arrived in America to record it, I was taken prisoner by the band and only allowed my freedom again in return for producing the whole album. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse!”

An interview with Squire: here!
