I've heard this as a rumour. Anyone got anything concrete on this? Bummer for me if it is true: I was looking forward to seeing them in London.

To be honest, I didn't know it was on, but I would love to see them if i got the chance...even though i haven't heard the album yet.

First off, I'd definitely recommend the album (probably the kiss of death, but I think it's brill and I've had it a long time now and had time to mull what I do and don't like).

Secondly, the mini tour was due to visit the Astoria in July and take in a couple of other European venues - notably a festival in Germany called Lorelei (I think it's spelled like this).

However, I've heard that problems with Alan's touring commitments have put it in jeopardy.

Weird thing is: I was looking forward to this more than the prospect of seeing Yes in 2008/9. They play a long medley of yes tunes that is pretty cool by all accounts.

Thanks to TBC for the link:

NEWS:
Due to clashes with the tour schedule of YES this summer it became necessary to cancel the CIRCA date on the Loreley Festival.
Saturday night will now see a performance of BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST feat. LES HOLROYD.

Bugger.

I'm sure with the considerations of a big Yes tour Coming Up
that Alan's Priorities have changed a bit.
hopefully for our europen and British Pals
Yes will Do europe later this Year
and possibly circa will be back later?
the other consideration
I think Is south america
Prog Bands are ON FIRE in Brazil
I'm Sure circa could do really well their too.
Rush entered Rio Like they owned the place
the South American audiences
Go Crazy Insane Happy to see Big named Prog bands
they are a young energetic exceited group
that knows every song and every drum beat.
overlooking Europe and south America on a "World Tour"
would be a blunder for any Prog-Band
I mean especially London and Rio-even if you at least hit those 2 places
it'd be better than not and sell more records(if there are any to sell)
and keep bands alive
Yes is a British band
more than half the guys still live there
it's seems strange that they wouldn't do something in at the very least London
the Circa scene has allways been running on debt and just getting buy
so maybe going outside of the states just wasn't feasable
