Yes have announced 2019 dates that are being billed as the Royal Affair Tour. The lineup at each concert also features Asia, John Lodge (bass guitarist of the Moody Blues), and Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy.
The legendary prog-rock band essentially split about 10 years ago, with Steve Howe leading the "official" band with Alan White on drums, Geoff Downes on keyboards, Billy Sherwood on bass, and Jon Davison as the vocalist. The other Yes group (which does not have any 2019 tour dates at this time) consists of founding member and classic-era vocalist Jon Anderson with Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman.
During the Royal Affair Tour, one of the interesting things is the crossover between band personnel. Downes and Sherwood will be pulling double-duty as members of Yes and Asia, while Howe (who was Asia's founding guitarist) will be making a guest appearance during the set. Carl Palmer is the founding drummer for Asia, and he will be performing with the band in addition to a separate ELP set with vocalist Arthur Brown. The tour also marks the introduction of Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal as a member of Asia. Also during the evening, Alan White will do a John Lennon tribute (White was the drummer on much of Lennon's solo material including "Imagine").
