Yes have canceled their Yestival Tour in the wake of the passing of guitarist Steve Howe's younger son, Virgil.

"Due to the tragic, unexpected death of guitarist Steve Howe's beloved younger son, Virgil, YES regrettably announces that the remaining dates of their Yestival Tour have been cancelled," the band posted in a statement on their website. "Ticket refunds for the affected tour dates (in Moorhead, Cedar Rapids, London, Rochester, Boston and Huntington) will be available at point of purchase. YES — Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, Jon Davison and Billy Sherwood — want to thank all their fans for their support and understanding at this time. Steve Howe and family ask for their privacy to be respected during this difficult time."

Details of Virgil's death have yet to be released. The Yestival Tour was set to feature Todd Rundgren and Carl Palmer's Emerson, Lake & Palmer legacy.
