Yes Fans Embrace Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman on Opening Night of the ARW World Tour

Long-time YES fans were treated to over two hours of Yes classics during their first show of the ARW 2016/2017 World Tour – An Evening of YES & More at the Hard Rock in Orlando, Florida on October 4th 2016. It has been 26 years since Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman toured together for the Yes “Union” Album.

The worldwide ARW Tour is being produced by legendary concert promoter Larry Magid, who is considered an architect and leader of the modern concert business. With over 16,000 concerts to his credit and still counting, he has produced national and international tours for Yes, Richard Pryor, Bette Midler, Stevie Wonder, Robin Williams, Kristin Chenoweth, Earth Wind & Fire, Il Divo, The Allman Brothers Band, Patti LaBelle, Grover Washington Jr. and many others. In 1985 Larry Magid co-produced the American portion of Live Aid and in 2005 he was the producer of Live 8.

On a Facebook post from Trevor Rabin after the show.
“The start of the ARW tour in Orlando tonight. What an incredible crowd. The guys performed so well. I had a couple of tech problems. But after almost 2 decades of not being on stage, I guess I was ok at times. I certainly loved doing it.
