Yes Find Replacement Frontman For Tour
by Staff

Rock veterans Yes are to go ahead with their 40th anniversary world tour - with a replacement singer from a tribute band.

The prog-rock legends were forced to pull the plug on the tour in June (08) when singer Jon Anderson was ordered to take six months rest after being hospitalised with acute respiratory failure.

But the band, formed by Anderson and bass player Chris Squire in 1968, have now decided to press ahead with the gigs - after finding an "understudy" for their vocalist from a Yes copycat act.

Benoit David, who sings in several Yes tribute bands in Montreal, Canada, will line-up with his heroes when the tour begins on 4 November (08) in Ontario.

He was recruited after Squire saw a clip of him fronting a Yes tribute band called Close To The Edge on video-sharing website YouTube. (c) WENN
