Close to the Edge 50th Anniversary Tour

After four previously sold-out shows, Jon Anderson of YES returns to The Ridgefield Playhouse stage with The Paul Green Rock Academy Band. This special performance will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of YES’s seminal album Close to the Edge.  Released in September 1972, Close to the Edge is widely regarded as one of the greatest progressive rock albums ever recorded. Inspired by Siddharta and their “state of mind” at the time, YES‘s 5th album is considered the band’s greatest masterpiece.  Hear the album played in its entirety along with other classics – “Long Distance Runaround,” “Roundabout” and a few surprises! The hugely talented Paul Green Rock Academy Band, which is an advanced touring ensemble of young musicians between the ages of 10 and 18, will kick off the night and backup Anderson as well.
