Styx and Yes Announce Co-Headlining Tour

Styx and Yes are joining forces this summer for a 22-city trek. The “Progressive U.S. Tour” kicks off on July 4 and is set to come to an end on August 3 in Mountain View, CA.

“When I first heard Yes, I knew that the music world was forever changed,” commented Styx singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw in a press statement. “They took progressive rock to a place that had never been expressed in such an impressive yet accessible way. Who among you didn’t make it a point to learn the acoustic guitar intro to ‘Roundabout?’ We’re very excited to tour with them for the very first time.”

Yes founder/bassist Chris Squire remarked, “We are excited to have Styx on tour with us. I consider them to be in the vein of YES and the cutting edge of prog-rock in America.”

Styx are currently putting the finishing touches on ‘Regeneration: Volume 2,’ the follow-up to 2010’s seven-song EP ‘Regeneration: Volume 1.’

Yes’ new Trevor Horn-produced album, ‘Fly From Here,’ is scheduled for release on July 12 via Frontiers Records.

Tickets will go on sale starting the weekend of April 8.
