    Any idea when the tour announcement will be made?, I saw him twice recently with the ARW version of Yes and he was as good as ever.

    Is this wishful thinking or is there any substance to the rumour ?

    Decision will not be made until after the US tour. Lads been on the road for the last month.


    Then the Euro tour get's planned. It is 1000 hands not ARW

    The main issue is costs, can we sell 2 nights at the olympia and 1 in Belfast

    (min 1000 tickets per night @ 55 euro a ticket).

    I can't see him doing multiple Dublin shows as Jon Anderson. The last time Yes were here in any guise, an Anderson-less band (Howe, Squire, White, Oliver Wakeman and Benoit David) did one Olympia show, which was superb, but it sold on the back of it being a Yesshow with Yessongs. Is Anderson able to draw more than one full house on his own? I mean, the full Tales lineup did one night in Vicar Street in 2003.

    OK
    who do you go and see



    So Yes is coming with Steve Howe and the 3rd drummer



    Jon will be touring with his band but most of the set will be YES songs that Jon wrote


    personally YES is Jon Anderson


    Who would you like to see, we are planning the Euro tour for FEB or March

    Tickets would be 50 each, 2 shows in Dublin

    Jon Anderson touring under his own name or will YES feature in the advertising ? Regardless I still can't see him sell out 2 shows in Dublin (I'm presuming Vicar St sized venue).

    Looking at similar acts with a similar fan base , the Steve Howe YES are doing one date (tickets still readily available) , Steve Hackett when he played one date wasn't a sell out, Marillion played one date that wasn't a sell out (I stand to be corrected on that).



    As much as I'd love to see him play - I think if it's dependent on 2 shows being a sell out to make it financially viable I think it could struggle.

    You're correct on all of that. Marillion wasn't full in Belfast either (the night before Vicar Street).

    What is the substance behind these rumours? Seems more like wishful thinking.
