Prog Rock Legends Yes To Continue U.S. Tour in 2010, Planning New Studio Album

Planet Rock is reporting that Prog Rock legends Yes have revealed that they will be touring North America once more in February 2010.

Due to the success of their current tour, and in particular their current line-up, the band will continue their run of live shows into 2010 – and the tour may lead to a new album.

Guitarist Steve Howe revealed to Billboard that the current line-up of Yes principles Alan White, Chris Squire and himself along with new boys Oliver “Son Of Rick” Wakeman and frontman Benoit David are working so well together that they don’t want to stop.

"I think they're doing a tremendous job," Howe tells about Wakeman and David. "We've mapped out a period of time for (Yes) to work, so in that period of time things are going to stay as they are now with Oliver and Benoit. When things were to feel right with any other line-up, then that will happen, but at the moment this is what we're focusing on."

And when asked about a potential new album after Yes started throwing brand new song ‘Aliens’ into their setlists Howe says that it’s likely to happen but in a similar way that his other band Asia reformed and recorded a new album.

"I think that's how I'd like to approach it with Yes as well, to have a little bit more time to do a little bit more (live) work and playing and then divert to recordings."
