In and around the lake; Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there;
One mile over we'll be there and we'll see you; Ten true summers we'll be there and laughing too;Twenty four before my love you'll see I'll be there with you - Roundabout lyrics (1971 from LP "Fragile").
Fans of Yes, which includes guitarist Steve Howe, keyboardist Geoff Downes, singer Jon Davison, drummer Alan White and bassist Chris Squire rejoice, Mark Cuban's new network will rock the house with this classic band on Tuesday, March 5, as Yes’ San Francisco show will be broadcast live on national television on AXS TV beginning at 11pm Eastern / 8pm Pacific.
Founded in 1968 by Jon Anderson and Chris Squire, Grammy-award winning recording artists Yes have created some of the most important and influential music in rock history, such as iconic pieces “Roundabout,” “Close to the Edge,” “I’ve Seen All Good People,” “Owner of a Lonely Heart,” and countless others. Having sold tens of millions of records over its four-decade career, Yes continues creating masterful music that inspires fans and musicians from around the world.
