After the terrible news of the passing of Steve Howe’s younger son, Virgil, Mark and I thought it would be inappropriate to release a normal episode of the podcast this week. So instead, here’s a brief statement of our shock and sadness at the death of Virgil Howe.

Yes official announcement on Yestival and Virgil Howe

Due to the tragic, unexpected death of guitarist Steve Howe’s beloved younger son, Virgil, YES regrettably announces that the remaining dates of their Yestival Tour in the USA have been cancelled.

Ticket refunds for the affected tour dates (in Moorhead, Cedar Rapids, London, Rochester, Boston and Huntington) will be available at point of purchase.

YES—Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, Jon Davison and Billy Sherwood—want to thank all their fans for their support and understanding at this time.

Steve Howe and family ask for their privacy to be respected during this difficult time.

  • What do we think of Going for the One today?
  • Is the production good?
  • What about live recordings?
