Credit: Glenn GottliebYes has extended and expanded its North American summer tour into late September, adding several shows during and after its previously announced Yestival trek that features opening acts Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy and Todd Rundgren.

The new dates include an August 28 concert in San Diego with just Palmer’s band, five September gigs with only Rundgren and a number of shows without any support acts.

The prog-rock legends, who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April, kick off their Yestival 2017 trek with an August 4 performance in Greensboro, North Carolina, and they wind down their long-distance run around North America with a September 18-19 Yes-only engagement in Huntington, New York.

Yes’ summer outing will see the band playing at least one song from each of the studio albums it released from its 1969 self-titled debut through 1980’s Drama.

“I think the presentation will be an interesting one because we’re going to play the songs chronologically,” longtime guitarist Steve Howe reveals in a new Guitar World interview. “It’ll allow our fans to really get a sense of our development and how our music evolved album to album during the course of 12 years.”
