This Has To Be Exaggeration, Right?

Rock band Yes to tour with replacement singer

The classic rock band Yes, which was forced to cancel their 40th anniversary tour this year due to the illness of its lead singer, has decided to relaunch the tour with an "understudy" -- a Yes tribute band singer.

Benoit David, who sings in several Yes tribute bands in Montreal, will replace Jon Anderson on the "In the Present" tour, which kicks of Nov. 4 in Ontario, Canada, according to bassist Chris Squire.

There are "several" Yes tribute bands in Montreal alone? I know it gets cold up there, but there has to be something else to do.
