Progressive rock band Yes will return to Paso Robles this fall for a concert that revisits two of its classic albums.

The Grammy Award-winning group will perform Sept. 3 at Vina Robles Amphitheatre as part of its The Album Series tour. Yes previously played the venue in 2013.

Founded in 1968 by singer Jon Anderson and bassist Chris Squire, Yes found success in the 1970s and early ’80s with a string of hits including “Owner of a Lonely Heart,” “I’ve Seen All Good People” and “Roundabout.” (Anderson, who parted ways with the band in 2008, now lives in Arroyo Grande.)

The band’s current lineup — singer Jon Davison, keyboardist Geoff Downes, guitarist Steve Howe, bassist Billy Sherwood and drummer Alan White — will revisit some of those songs when they take the stage in September. They’ll also perform selections from Yes’s 1973 double-disc concept album “Tales From Topographic Oceans,” as well as the band’s 1980 album, “Drama,” in its entirety.

Tickets for Yes’s Sept. 3 concert cost $45 to $65 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Vina Robles Amphitheatre is at Vina Robles Vineyards & Winery, 3800 Mill Road. For information, call 227-4812 or visit www.vinaroblesamphitheatre.com.
