One of the most recognisable & influential voices in progressive rock, as the lead vocalist and creative force behind the band Yes, Jon Anderson was central to that band’s phenomenal success. Jon’s solo show includes classic tales from his days with the supergroup and his ensuing solo career as well as the timeless songs from all across the Yes songbook & his own eclectic solo work.

Jon was the author and a major creative influence behind the series of epics produced by the legendary supergroup Yes including such complex pieces as "Close to the Edge", "Awaken", and especially "The Gates of Delirium.”

Additionally, Jon co-authored the group's biggest hits, including "I've Seen All Good People," Roundabout," and "Owner Of A Lonely Heart." Noted for singing in his original Lancastrian accent, this is a chance to see this truly unique musician perform solo, up close and personal.

Yes, Jon still is the voice...Anderson’s voice remains exquisite, never more so than on Find My Way Home, Won¬drous Stories and the sublime Soon excerpt from The Gates Of Delirium.” - EXPRESS & STAR

Irish born Anderson, started off fronting Mabel Greer's Toyshop, before forming Yes, however his musical career has never been creatively limited. Be it working on four celebrated albums with Oscar winner Vangelis, or playing with the likes of Toto, Glass Hammer, Dream Theater, Kitaro, King Crimson, Mike Oldfield, Peter Machajdik, Gowan, Rick Wakeman's concept album '1984' and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones or producing 13 highly acclaimed solo albums.

Jon has always found different avenues for creativity, be it composing and playing with dozens of orchestras throughout the world, composing ballet scores or contributing to countless film scores and painting.

A masterful musician, a weaver of stories both verbal and musical, this intimate evening with Jon Anderson will linger long in the memory.
