We parked at the convention center garage and were able to use the building's front doors and elevator to exit and enter again, then just crossed the street @ the light rail stop. Worked great!

Watch out for Parking. There are signs with "City" with BIG $5.00 but under the amount has small writing "PER HOUR".

Description

Grammy award winning, ground-breaking progressive rock band YES will return to the road this summer. The band will perform 24 very special live concerts, including a stop at the San Jose Civic. YES features a line-up of guitarist Steve Howe, bassist Chris Squire, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes and new lead singer Jon Davison. One of the greatest rock bands of all time, YES’ live show is not to be missed. Special guest Procol Harum will also perform.

“There aren’t many bands that can say that they’ve had the kind of relationship like the one that we’ve had with our fans. They’ve continued to come to see us play and have always been an integral part of our journey. We’re excited to be starting a new chapter with an extraordinary talent – Jon Davison – a brilliant vocalist who takes over as our lead singer. We’re really happy to have him and we can’t wait for everyone to hear YES this summer,” said the band in a statement.

Known for such classics as “Roundabout,” which consistently appears on “the best songs of all-time” lists, #1 hit “Owner of a Lonely Heart”, “I’ve Seen All Good People”, “Tempus Fugit”, “Long Distance Runaround”, and “Starship Trooper”, YES have certainly left their mark on rock ‘n’ roll history. The show will feature unforgettable music from the band’s hugely successful catalogue. YES will perform music from hit albums such as Drama, Fragile, Close to the Edge, 90125 and the band’s new release_ Fly From Here. _

Redefining rock music for more than four decades, YES has sold over 50 million albums, reaching platinum status worldwide, and have become one of the most popular concert attractions of all time. Inspiring millions across the world to pick up instruments over the years, YES’ innovative and evolving one of a kind musical style has made the band’s sound a genre unto itself.
