 Hollywood, Fla. (May 31, 2016) – YES band members Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman reunite as Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman (ARW) at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 3, at 10 a.m. Fans will have access to presale tickets beginning Thursday, June 2, at 10 a.m. through Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman are proud to announce that after a hiatus of 25 years, they are reforming the definitive YES line-up as ARW. Since they last played together in 1990 on the highly successful YES “Union Tour,” there have been various hybrid versions of the band. However, none of the versions featured the iconic voice of Anderson, the outstanding guitar talent of Rabin and the keyboard wizardry of Wakeman. The aim of the band will be to restore the standard of excellence in performance that it established with its 1990 shows, which saw YES members past and present come together for the first and only time of the legendary band’s career.

The most successful progressive rock group of all time, YES was co-founded by Jon Anderson and the late Chris Squire in 1968 and went on to sell millions of units with releases such as “Fragile,” “Close to The Edge,” “Tales From Topographic Oceans,” “Going For The One” and “90125,” as well as embarking on several record-breaking world tours.

While Wakeman is associated with the ’70s “prog era” of the band, which saw YES become a worldwide stadium headliner, and Rabin associated with the ’80s “pop era” of the band that furthered the band’s popularity, including the band’s biggest chart success, Anderson is the bridge between both factions, as he was a member of both eras.

Not content to rest on past glory, Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman are working on new songs, which are currently being recorded.

Tickets cost $80, $70 and $50.* All seats are reserved and available at all Ticketmaster outlets online at www.myhrl.com, www.ticketmaster.com or charge by phone: 1-800-745-3000. Doors open one hour prior to show start time. *Additional fees may apply.
