Yes visits the Paramount on February 12.

Yes, who kicked off its "In the Present" tour last month, will stop at the Paramount February 12 with long-time members Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Alan White, as well as Rick Wakeman's son, Oliver, on keyboards. Vocalist Benoit David, who Squire discovered in Yes tribute band Close to the Edge, is filling in for Jon Anderson, who is facing a lengthy recovery from acute respiratory failure. In other news, the Boulder Theater announced three stellar shows as part of KUVO's Jazz Appreciation Series: Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio on April 1, Bill Frisell Trio on April 7 and John Scofield's Piety Street Band on April 29. Here's a rundown of the other shows going on sale this weekend, or recently announced. For ticket information, click on the venue links. -- Jon Solomon
