Jon Anderson the Voice of Yes, Two NZ Shows
One of the most recognisable & influential voices in progressive rock, as the lead vocalist and creative force behind the band Yes, Jon Anderson was central to that band’s phenomenal success. Jon’s solo show includes classic tales from his days with the supergroup and his ensuing solo career as well as the timeless songs from all across the Yes songbook & his own eclectic solo work.
Jon was the author and a major creative influence behind the series of epics produced by the legendary supergroup Yes including such complex pieces as 'Close to the Edge', 'Awaken', and especially 'The Gates of Delirium.'
Additionally, Jon co-authored the group's biggest hits, including 'I've Seen All Good People,' Roundabout,' and 'Owner Of A Lonely Heart.' Noted for singing in his original Lancastrian accent, this is a chance to see this truly unique musician perform solo, up close and personal.
“Yes, Jon still is the voice... Anderson’s voice remains exquisite, never more so than on Find My Way Home, Wondrous Stories and the sublime Soon excerpt from The Gates Of Delirium.” - Express & Star
