Event Details

Previous members of Yes, Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman, joined forces to create the band ARW. The band’s lineup highlights two famous eras of Yes; Wakeman’s keyboards define a 70’s progressive rock era and Rabin’s guitar brings out Yes’ 80’s pop era, while Anderson bridges the gap between eras. Since they last played together in 1990 on the Yes ‘Union Tour,’ there have been various hybrid versions of the band. Now, this version of the band features the iconic voice of Jon Anderson, the outstanding guitar talent of Trevor Rabin and the genius keyboardist Rick Wakeman. If you are a long-time Yes fan, you can finally rejoice!

Admission ranges from $37-$238.

Oakdale Theatre95 South Turnpike Road, WallingfordBuilt on an alfalfa field in 1954 by original founder Ben Segal, the original Oakdale was part of the "theatre-in-the-round" craze that saw many circular stages open in various parts of the Northeast. A family owned business for decades, it began primarily as a summer stock venue, hosting many of the musicals of the day: 'Kiss Me Kate', 'South Pacific', 'Oklahoma' to mention a few, with many of Broadways brightest stars like John Raitt, Danny Kaye, James Garner and Ethel Merman. In the 60s, Oakdale evolved into a summer concert venue where the likes of Harry Belafonte, Paul Anka, Steve & Eydie, Tom Jones, and more played to the open air crowds every summer, sometimes for 2 weeks at a time! The landscape changed in the late 60s and Oakdale rocked and rolled with Cream, The Who, The Doors and even Led Zeppelin, all playing live on the spinning stage.
