NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Rush frontman Geddy Lee is reportedly planning to perform with rock band Yes as he helps to induct the progressive rock legends into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on April 7th.
Geddy Lee would join Yes on stage for a performance while inducting their progressive rock compatriots into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on April 7th.
In March, Billboard reported on the story, suggesting Lee would perform with Yes, but later published a retraction, walking that claim back. However, since then Rush news website Cygnus-X1 reported that Yes drummer Alan White appears to have confirmed the story in a post on Yes's website.
"Yes, we will be performing and I do believe Geddy has agreed to play bass for the band. We’ll be playing 2 songs that everybody knows. I’m going to New York with a very positive sense of playing together again. It will be a bit of an adventure for everybody but when you put us all in the same room, we all know the songs, so it shouldn’t take too long to rehearse them," White wrote.
As well, Lee was reportedly seen performing "Roundabout" with members of Yes during a rehearsal session. The ceremony will take place on Friday, April 7th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and will be broadcast at a future date by HBO. – Staff Writers
