Yes singer goes it alone on solo tour

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Singer Jon Anderson at the start of his U.S. tour says playing solo presents a different kind of challenge from his concerts with the band.

"I've always wanted to try and do a one-man show because it's the opposite to what I've always been doing, and it's a challenge," says Anderson, who begins the U.S. run of his "Work in Progress -- Tour of the Universe" Wednesday in Annapolis, Md.

"People come to the show, they don't really know what's going to happen, which is fun because I know what's going to happen. And we go through the show and I play this and talk about that song and do this and that and by an hour and a half later, we're finished. It's a real, good, fun night and everybody has a great time."

Anderson's European solo dates are captured on a new DVD, also titled "Work in Progress -- Tour of the Universe." A CD from the U.S. shows will be released in January.
