Rock'n'Roll Fantasy Camp with Yes

When you were a kid you probably went to camp during the summer. There are all kinds of camps for kids: music camp, astronomy camp, nature camp, farm camp, even camp camp! Now that you are an adult you probably even send your own kids to camp during the summer. It is always a great experience when groing up.

Now, as an adult lover of prog, you can go to camp too, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

One of the most successful progressive-rock bands in history, Yes combined virtuosic musicianship, suite like neoclassical structures, and three-part high vocal harmonies to form an intricate whole that audiences loved and are now coming to Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp!

Surpassing other progressive rock bands in the 1970s and 80s, Yes' incredible, innovative sound has gotten nine of their albums on the top ten charts in the US and UK. Once Yes dipped into the pop rock pool, album sales peaked, especially after their remarkable album "90125". This massive album includes the number one hit single "Owner of a Lonely Heart." Singles "Leave It" and "It Can Happen" caught them national attention, making it onto the Billboard Charts. Yes also earned their first Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1985 for the two-minute track "Cinema". Their music received positive recognition throughout the music community, earning the band several Grammy Nominations, such as Best Pop Performance by a Due or Group With Vocals with "Owner of a Lonely Heart", Best Rock Instrumental Performance for "Amazing Grace" and "Masquerade".

Now's your chance to surround yourself and become part of YES with the epic vocals of Jon Davison, the multi-layered keyboard sounds of Geoff Downes, the precise percussions of Alan White, and the legendary guitar playing by Steve Howe and Chris Squire. It's time to JAM with YES!
