Venerable prog-rock titans Yes will play the new, outdoor Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles on Saturday, July 6, CalCoastNews has learned.
Yes has an extensive 2013 tour schedule, where they plan to perform three early releases, ‘The Yes album’, ‘Close to the Edge’ and ‘Going for the One’, in their entirety. However, former lead singer and San Luis Obispo County resident Jon Anderson is not participating in this tour.
It is unclear whether Yes will be the first act at the new venue, which is scheduled to open this summer. Garrison Keillor has booked a show there on July 14.
The much-anticipated outdoor venue will accommodate 3,300 patrons in a bowl-type setting at the winery off Highway 46 on the northeast side of town. Their concert season will run annually from May through November. For more information, go to www.vinarobles.com.
