Philadelphia has always embraced YES. Frontman Jon Anderson even holds a key to the city.
And although Anderson and YES have parted ways in the last several years, Jon’s voice will forever be a lovely and strong beacon for those fans who want the pure experience of these YES-songs.
I recently spoke to Jon about this upcoming tour that brings him to The Keswick Theatre on April 2.
Listen to the Interview Here:
He’s quite elated to be returning to our city and particularly since the date falls on the birthday of the late Ed Sciaky, the iconic Philly DJ who boosted YES in the early days and championed them throughout his entire career.
Jon is putting on an intimate one-man show on this tour that touches on the many songs he wrote while with YES. His instruments of choice include guitar, dulcimer, ukelele and piano and of course his unmistakeable voice. What some may not realize, is that Jon has a great wit and a delightful sense of humor that is completely engaging alongside the music.
In addition to the classics, Jon will also be touching on recent works – some which have been made available as digital downloads. His work with Vangelis will also be included in the setlist.
Expect a bit of magic when Jon Anderson hits the stage!
