Yes’ Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, & Trevor Rabin Form New Super Group

Music News

Former Yes members Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, and Trevor Rabin have joined forces once again for Anderson, Rabin, & Wakeman (ARW). The trio, who last performed together a quarter century ago during the massive 1991 Union tour, which collected most of the Yes alumni on one stage, will launch a 29-date fall trek kicking off on October 4th at Orlando, Florida at Hard Rock Cafe / Hard Rock Live. The dates, which will feature both new music and the best-loved songs from the Yes catalogue, will wind down on November 25th at San Francisco’s SF Masonic.

Yes frontman and co-founder Jon Anderson spoke about the tour, explaining, “To be able to sing and perform with Rick and Trevor at this time in my life is a treasure beyond words. I’m so excited to create new music and revisit some of the classic work we created many years ago, it’s going to be a musical adventure on so many new levels.”

Keyboardist Rick Wakeman, who was not part of the ’80s lineup of Yes — which soared the charts in the early-’80s with 90215 — is eager to connect musically with the band’s then-guitarist again: “Trevor and I have wanted to play Yes music together since the Union tour. And as for so many of us, there is no Yes music without Jon. The ‘Holy Trinity of Yes’ is for me, very much a dream come true.”

Jon Anderson told us that he’s based his entire musical career on constantly diving into deep and uncharted waters: “Yeah, in some ways, you reinvent yourself every day, every minute some people say. But, I know that over my career, I was always willing to work with Vangelis, or Kitaro, or Bob Fripp.

Y’know, when Bob Fripp asked me to sing a song on the second (King) Crimson album, I said, ‘Yes, please!’ And I think that’s what life is all about. You have to be adventurous, so I don’t feel any weight at all having to prove anything ever. I’ve never actually wanted to have to prove anything. I’m still busy trying to create the better music.”
