Jon Anderson, founder and voice of Prog-Rock legends YES brings his “1000 Hands” Tour to the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Monday, April 15th!
Jon Anderson is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock as the lead vocalist and creative force behind Yes. Anderson was the author and 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.
Additionally, Anderson co-authored the group’s biggest hits, including “I’ve Seen All Good People”, “Roundabout”, and “Owner Of A Lonely Heart”. In addition, Anderson had great success with a series of albums he did with Vangelis, and most recently released the critically-acclaimed solo album entitled ‘Survival and Other Stories’.
Anderson was a major creative force and band leader (describing himself as the ‘team captain’ and ‘catalyst’; nicknamed by his band mates “Napoleon” for his diminutive stature and leadership of the band) and is recognized as the main instigator of the series of epics produced by Yes at the time.
Tickets for this show go on-sale Friday, February 8th at 10am and will be available to purchase from Ticketmaster, Charge-By-Phone or at the F.M. Kirby box office.
