Casa da Suiça
Formed in 1968 by bassist Chris Squire and singer Jon Anderson, British band Yes got their first taste of wide commercial success with the upbeat and instantly recognizable 1983 pop-rock hit, ‘Owner of a Lonely Heart.’ However, it was an earlier, more psychedelic and altogether more turquoise tunic-wearing incarnation of Yes that gained them critical accolades as the visionaries of progressive rock in the 1970s. Characterised by elaborate vocal arrangements, trippy ambience and transcendental lyrics at their creative apogee, to date Yes have released twenty studio albums and tirelessly toured the world for the last four decades.
Presenting a revamped line-up on carioca turf for the first time, the band’s 2013 Spring Tour stop in Rio promises fans a start-to-finish rendition of their three progressive rock album classics: 1971’s The Yes Album, 1972’s Close to the Edge and 1977’s Going for the One. If Yes’s 2010 sold-out show in Sao Paulo is any indication of their ability to draw in the fans by the thousands, the rock vets will pack them in at Vivo Rio.
