Yes are celebrating last year’s 50th anniversary tour with a new live album release. Due August 2, “Yes 50 Live” will present highlights from the milestone trek, which included shows in Europe, North America and Japan. The package contains songs from the band’s past from 10 different studio albums recorded between 1970 and 2011. 

The collection highlights some of the group’s iconic tracks, including “Starship Trooper” from 1971’s “The Yes Album”, “Roundabout” from “Fragile” (1971) and the title track from 1972’s “Close To The Edge.”

Much of the album was recorded in Philadelphia at a show where 10 members of the Yes family were on stage during the encore – including current members Steve Howe, Geoff Downes, Alan White, Billy Sherwood and Jon Davison, Jay Schellen – alongside former members Tony Kaye, Patrick Moraz, Tom Brislin and Trevor Horn.
