Jon Anderson

When Jon Anderson and some of his fellow Brits formed Yes some 45 years ago, they helped launch the genre of music that would become known as progressive rock. King Crimson, Genesis, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Rush, and others would soon follow, and all of these bands helped raise the level of musicianship in rock across the board. Yes went on to sell tens of millions of records—elaborate works filled with Anderson’s epic lyrical tales of mysterious worlds and forces, all backed by complex yet often melodic arrangements that the rock world had never before experienced. From 1969 to 1979 Yes released an incredible string of 11 albums, and Anderson fronted the band until 2008.

As a solo artist, Anderson has found the time and energy to release 13 albums over the years. Jon’s solo music is quieter and more spiritual than his work with Yes but no less powerful in its own way. He’ll be playing plenty of both at the Wheeler Opera House on Friday night.
