Fragile Things - Disappear

Yes announce new live album ‘Topographic Drama - Live Across America’

Yes are set to release a new live album later this autumn.

Titled ‘Topographic Drama – Live Across America’, the extensive live record is released on double-CD and triple-LP formats on Friday 24th November. Both versions feature stunning cover artwork from the band’s longtime collaborator Roger Dean.

The album was recorded over 12 dates on Yes’s summer 2016 North American tour that saw the band open by performing their 1980 album ‘Drama’ in its entirety for the very first first time.

Following ‘Drama’, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, Billy Sherwood, Jon Davison and additional drummer Jay Schellen played songs from two of Yes’s best-selling albums: ‘And You And I’ from 1972’s ‘Close To The Edge’ and ‘Heart Of The Sunrise’ from 1971’s ‘Fragile’.

The set list then moved on to sides one and four from Yes’ 1973 double-album ‘Tales From Topographic Oceans’, before the album reaches an emphatic finale with ‘Roundabout’ from ‘Fragile’ (1971) and ‘Starship Trooper’ from ‘The Yes Album’ (1971).
