Jon Anderson of YES

This event has already finished but is here for for your information

Jon Anderson is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock as the lead vocalist and creative force behind Yes.

Location: Peoples Bank Theatre
Time: 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
222 Putnam St
Marietta, OH

Anderson was the author and a major creative influence behind the ground-breaking album “Fragile” as well as the series of epic, complex pieces such as “Awaken”, “Gates of Delirium” and especially “Close to the Edge” which were central to the band’s success. Additionally, Anderson co-authored the group’s biggest hits, including “I’ve Seen All Good People”, “Roundabout”, and “Owner Of A Lonely Heart”. If you asked Jon, he would say that he loves the adventure in making music, as evidenced in 50 years of success in the music business, working not only with many variations of Yes, but also with very successful collaborations with Vangelis and Kitaro, and more recently with Roine Stolt and Jean-Luc Ponty. His collaboration with Vangelis produced a number of hit records, including “Friends of Mr Cairo” which was groundbreaking in its use of narrative voiceover, creating a phenomena that was copied by many artists and producers, most notably Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones with “Thriller”. As Jon would say, “We all copy each others musical dreams, it’s the cross-pollenation of music that keeps the world spinning around”.

Tickets: $49.00, $69.00, $88.00 & Pit Tickets $128.00
