LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Progressive rock outfit Yes has reportedly found a replacement for vocalist Benoit David, who's been battling health issues.
A posting on the band's Facebook page noted that David was still recovering from the unspecificed illness that forced the band to cancel the last leg of their European run last year. The post went to say that David would be unable to join the band for their upcoming dates in Australia and Asia.
"To avoid disappointing their fans on the forthcoming Australasian leg of their world tour, they have found a replacement singer. Jon Davison will join Yes as lead vocalist for the upcoming dates in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Indonesia, and Hawaii. Yes really appreciate (sic) Jon Davison joining them for this leg of the tour and are sure this arrangement will satisfy all Yes fans," the posting read.
David himself was a replacement for the band's original vocalist Jon Anderson, who'd returned to the band after a hiatus in 1983. David signed with Yes in 2008. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
