Yes, Todd Rundgren, and Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy are currently touring together for the Yestival 2017 summer tour across the US and Canada. A recent tour-stop at the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk saw five great drummers hang out together backstage: From left, Prairie Prince (Todd Rundgren, The Tubes); Carl Palmer (Emerson, Lake & Palmer; Asia); Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Rod Stewart, Appice Brothers); Alan White (Yes, John Lennon); and Dylan Howe (Yes, Dr. Feelgood).
All of these drummers, which the exception of Appice, are touring together on Yestival through early September.
For the 2017 Yestival shows, Yes will play one track from each studio album in chronological order, from Yes (1969) to Drama (1980), with a few surprises thrown in.
