Jon Anderson of Yes to Perform at The Egg on August 6th
ALBANY – Jon Anderson, famously known as the frontman for the prog-rock tour de force, Yes, will be appearing at The Egg in Albany on August 6th. Anderson will be accompanied by the all-star students of the Paul Green Rock Academy. The show is part of The Egg’s Rhythm International Series.
Jon Anderson is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock as the lead vocalist and creative force behind the legendary band YES. Jon co-composed the group’s biggest hits, including “I’ve Seen All Good People”, “Roundabout”, and “Owner Of A Lonely Heart” and was a major creative influence behind the ground-breaking album Fragile as well as the series of epic, complex pieces such as “Awaken”, “Gates of Delirium” and especially “Close to the Edge” which were central to the band’s success. To date, Anderson has released fifteen solo albums outside of his work with Yes. At The Egg, Jon will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of Close to the Edge, performing the album in its entirety along with other classics.
