YES cancels remaining tour dates

FRIANT, Calif., Feb. 20 (UPI) -- The rock band YES says it is canceling the remaining U.S. dates on its In The Present Tour because founding YES member Chris Squire is recovering from surgery.
Squire had a leg
operation Feb. 11. Although the surgery was successful and the musician is on his way to a full recovery, Squire has been advised by his physician that he needs a one-month rest period, hence the reason for the cancellation of the rest of the tour dates, the group said.
"It is regrettable that the band was forced to cancel their remaining shows on this current tour, including the performance scheduled for Tuesday, March 3 at Table Mountain Casino," John Mayewski, president and chief executive officer of California's Table Mountain Casino said in a statement. "All of the guests and employees of Table Mountain Casino wish Chris a speedy, complete recovery, and hope that YES is able to resume their tour in the very near future."
