Unforgettable and historic night of British rock!
Recorded live in Las Vegas during their headline North American tour in July of 2019, A Royal Affair Tour was a must-see best-of-British-rock show and featured support by Asia with the return of founding member Steve Howe in a special performance, John Lodge of The Moody Blues, and Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy with guest vocals by Arthur Brown.
The Yes performing line up was Steve Howe (guitar — joined 1970), Alan White (drums since 1972), Geoff Downes (keyboards; first joined in 1980), Jon Davison (vocals since 2011) and Billy Sherwood (guitar/keyboards in the 1990s and the late Chris Squire's choice to take over bass/vocals in 2015), with Jay Schellen on additional drums. Yes performed songs from their storied career, one of rock music's most prized bodies of work, and their set was in honor of the memory of Yes members Chris Squire and Peter Banks. Continuing the British theme, the set featured Alan White of Yes' tribute to John Lennon; White was the drummer on Lennon's solo material including the recording of "Imagine."
The Royal Affair Tour live set and album, recorded at the Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas, on July 26, 2019, reaches a climax with two of the best-loved Yes tracks: "Roundabout" and "Starship Trooper", always a high note on which to close the set.
The Royal Affair Tour also featured an exhibition of original art by Roger Dean whose artwork is synonymous with having designed the iconic Yes logo and the band's best-loved album covers. Roger Dean recently painted The Royal Affair Tour album artwork live on Facebook while also fielding questions from fans.
"The Royal Affair tour album is a welcome new chapter in the wide expanse of Yes' live recordings. I hope you enjoy it." — Alan White
