JON ANDERSON with The Paul Green Rock Academy Legendary

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and legendary YES frontman once again joins forces with School of Rock founder Paul Green and his students to create a show that captures the power and splendor of his music as played by some of the best young musicians in the country. Jon has toured with Paul’s students since 2005 and for the summer of 2022 he has decided to honor the 50th anniversary of the seminal Prog Rock Album CLOSE TO THE EDGE by putting these young musicians through their paces to play the album in it’s entirety.

This Jon Anderson with The Paul Green Rock Academy tour is a resumption of the tradition started in 2005 when Jon toured with Paul’s original School of Rock all stars. These shows, over 30 in total between 2006-2008, were nothing short of magical. Now Jon Anderson returns to continue that magic with a set of Yes Classics, deep cuts, mash ups, and solo works, all with lush arrangements featuring choral singing, horns, and all the other benefits of having a backing band of 20 young up-and-coming musicians.

“THERE IS A FUTURE IN MUSIC, AND THESE YOUNG SOULS PROVE IT EVERY TIME I HEAR THEM SING AND PLAY. I KNOW YOU WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL EVENING SPENDING TIME WITH THE FUTURE OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL,” Jon Anderson
