News: Jon Anderson's Tour Of The Universe Audio Soundtrack Now Available Digitally

Showcasing the unique songwriting and vocal talent of ex-Yes singer/songwriter, Jon Anderson, his 2005 debut solo concept DVD Tour Of The Universe is a musical passage through life, time and the world beyond, featuring many new songs as well as classic hits from his work with Yes and his collaborations with Vangelis. Recorded live at XM Radio Studios, the concert is now, for the very first time, available digitally!

Jon says about the whole project: “Not many people know how this concert was created... FYI, I controlled all the music/sound effects/backing vocals through my midi guitar, using a Roland GR 30 and 4 small Yamaha rack mounts with all the musical sounds and effects needed. I controlled it all with five foot pedals fading in the sounds for each song, which was a very crazy musical 'dance' as I did the show. Plus some harp ideas ... with birds helping ... it still sounds wild and magical to me. Have fun listening! Love and 'light'.”

Jon Anderson was recently presented with the Prog God award at this year's Progressive Music Awards, in association with, which was held at London's Underglobe on September 1, 2016!
