Progressive rock melodies and tasty guitar riffs are what’s in store with this classic rock double bill featuring two of the most influential and ground-breaking artists of the 1970s on stage together! The concert will feature more than three hours of music and is sure to include YES classics like "I've Seen All Good People" and "Starship Trooper," as well as Frampton hits like "Show Me The Way," "Baby, I Love Your Way," and "Do You Feel Like We Do."

YES, one of rock history’s greatest progressive rock bands and one of the most popular concert attractions of all-time, just wrapped up a February USA tour. The band’s remarkable career has served to re-define the boundaries of rock. As a dominant force for more than four decades, YES has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. Their symphonic use of sound and innovative musical styles has made each of the group's players a virtuoso in his own right. The YES lineup continues to feature guitarist Steve Howe, bassist and founding member Chris Squire, and drummer Alan White, as well as Oliver Wakeman (son of keyboard legend Rick Wakeman) on keyboards, and lead singer Benoit David.

Peter Frampton, who recently won a Grammy Award for his instrumental album Fingerprints, remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top selling live records of all time. He’ll be performing material from his forthcoming release Thank You Mr Churchill (out April 27, 2010). Frampton’s band will include Rob Arthur (keyboards, guitar, and backing vocals) and John Regan (bass), as well as Adam Lester (guitar) and Dan Wojciechowski (drums).

Frampton and Yes performed stadium shows together in 1976, including a show to more than 100,000 at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia.

Singer/songwriter Michael McDonald, of The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan fame, brings his distinctive, instantly recognizable voice and a suitcase full of hits to the stage in Santa Rosa. With his husky, soulful baritone, diverse range, and an incredible popular appeal, McDonald has been entertaining audiences with his own brand of "blue-eyed soul" for over three decades. He’s known for catchy and inspirational pop music influenced in equal parts by Memphis-style soul, rhythm and blues, and soulful ballads. With The Doobies he brought us “Takin’ It to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute,” and, unforgettably, the Number One single “What a Fool Believes.” As a solo artist, he is the creator of such hits as “I Keep Forgettin’," the Grammy-winning “Yah Mo B There," and the Number One pop single “On My Own." Most recently, McDonald released two highly successful albums of classic Motown covers and his latest album of favorite covers, Soul Speak.
