(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Yes guitarist Steve Howe, bassist Chris Squire and drummer Alan White have canceled their scheduled “More Drama Tour,” which was scheduled to begin August 2 in Seattle, presented by VH1 Classic.
The cancellation was prompted by immigration issues in the wake of heightened security brought on by the recent terrorist attacks in London. The tour will be rescheduled at a later date.
“We’re frustrated as much as the fans are but we understand the importance of the heightened security and hope we can reschedule the tour at some point,” said the bassist for Yes and The Syn, Chris Squire.
The tour was to have spotlighted performances by three different bands, including the pre-Yes prog-rock pioneers The Syn, featuring Squire and original vocalist Stephen Nardelli; White’s recently formed side project White with keyboardist Geoff Downes, and Steve Howe's solo set. The three principals then planned to perform their own set of Drama-era Yes songs. — Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
