Having helped shape the rock landscape, Yes and Styx continue to flex their honed and toned musical muscles as they co-headline their Progressive U.S. Tour. The virtuosos of Yes flaunt their titanic talents as they crack the spine on a songbook that includes showstoppers such as “Roundabout” and “Owner of a Lonely Heart,” as well as material from their newest album, Fly From Here. Styx, responsible for tunes such as “Come Sail Away” and named for the most popular water park in ancient Greece, invites listeners to hitch their ears to its litany of hits, many of which have been re-recorded for the band's Regeneration series.
