    ARW to play Stone Free Festival, London UK, Sunday 18 June 2018

    https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock...free-festival/

    Stone Free Festival is returning for a third year in 2018 with a blockbuster line-up.

    Taking place over two days on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June 2018 once again at The O2 in London, headlining the opening night are German rock legends Scorpions. The show will be Scorpions’ only UK show in 2018 and their first in London for a decade. 

    Joining them on the Saturday bill are thrash torchbearers Megadeth who will also be playing their only UK show of the year at Stone Free Festival.
    The Sunday will see prog rock icons YES featuring Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman – also in a UK live exclusive for 2018 – top the bill. The trio toured the UK back in March to rave reviews from critics and fans alike.

    Also playing The O2 on the Sunday are Supertramp frontman Roger Hodgson and Planet Rock favourite Joanne Shaw Taylor.

    Many more acts will be added to both the Saturday and Sunday line-up in the coming weeks and months.

    As well as performances from world class bands, a series of extras will be returning to Stone Free Festival including the Speak Easy Lounge, Vinyl Fair, multiple stages taking over The O2 a fabulous Saturday Night After Show Party and Rock Royalty VIP packages.

    Also returning this year will be the acoustic beer garden, featuring performances from some of the best upcoming acoustic and rock talent in the country, all curated by Richer Unsigned.

    Planet Rock has an exclusive 24-hour ticket presale to Stone Free Festival that starts at 10am on Thursday 30th November ahead of general sale on Friday. Head to Planet Rock Tickets to buy yours!
    I see they've decided to use Roger's Yes logo in the marketing.

    Whoever put the poster together. I don't know!
    However I suspect that the principals would have a right to review any concert advertising.

    Re: ARW to play Stone Free Festival, London UK, Sunday 18 June 2018

    Only UK date for 2018?? Is that then also that "special event" Anderzon and Wakeman have mentioned for 2018 (although they spoke of early 2018 if I'm not mistaken) since that also was to take place in London?

    And it doesn't for bode well for a 50th celebration for us UK/Euopean fans from YesF. Seems that if any celebration tour will take place it will be US only. Disappointed about that.

    Sometimes in music, the songs can transcend the band members themselves - I think Yes is such a band.

    1. The announcement says it's the only UK date for 2018 - no crystal ball required.

    2. Mr Holland's next comment is a question not a statement or prediction - no crystal ball required.

    3. Based on 1. the rest is simple deduction - no crystal ball required.

    Great title for the next ARW album
    No Crystal ball required
    Although they regulary wear jackets in promo shots so it could have been No Jacket required , which would have totally confused Phil Collins as well as the already confused YES fan base who are equally confused with the use of the Offiical YES logo which has equally confused Roger Dean

    Hmm. I read that as referring to Scorpions and Megadeth.

    Well "only UK date in 2018" doesn't really leave much room for interpretation, unless you feel that they're (festival organisation) lying or are misinformed. If indeed true it means no 50th anniversary tour in 2018 for the UK/Europe.

    It's mentioned seperately:

    "The Sunday will see prog rock icons YES featuring Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman – also in a UK live exclusive for 2018 – top the bill. "

    Ok, thanks, hadn't seen that. Although that's not quite the same as "only UK show in 2018".
    And if it was, wouldn't they have had the * treatment?

    It may be the only one known of at the moment...Understandable they would like to claim exclusivity, even it's a temporary state of affairs.
    Getting over all the time I had to worry.....
