Grammy-winning rock band YES is excited to announce an addition to their first-ever festival – YEStival, a day-into-night musical adventure in full quadraphonic sound – set for Saturday, August 3rd at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ.
VOLTO!, a new band featuring TOOL drummer Danny Carey, has just been confirmed as a performer along with the previously announced artists including THE MUSICAL BOX, RENAISSANCE FEATURING ANNE HASLAM, and CARL PALMER’S ELP LEGACY.
Volto! features Danny Carey from Tool, guitarist John Ziegler (PYGMY LOVE CIRCUS) and bass player Lance Morrison (DON HENLEY). Carey says, “To say that I am excited to play the Yestival would be an understatement. I have been listening to Yes for over 40 years now so this will literally be a dream come true.” Volto!’s debut album Incitare will be released July 23rd.
Tickets for Yestival go on sale Friday, June 7th at 10 AM EST and will start at just $35. Tickets will be available at Ticketmaster.com, Susquehanna Bank Center Box Office, Live Nation Box Office, Ticketmaster outlets or by-phone at 800-745-3000.
In other news, iconic cover album artist Roger Dean has revealed new artwork, pictured above, created just for the festival. The British artist has created many of the memorable Yes album covers since 1971.
Yes – bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes and singer Jon Davison – has been enjoying a successful 2013, with a world tour marking the first time since 1973 that the band has performed any album onstage in their entirety.
The North American tour will continue starting July 6th in Paso Robles, CA, wrapping up August 12th in Indianapolis, IN. Go to yesworld.com for the latest tour dates and ticket links.
