the link up above says it all, with interviews between David Paich of Toto and Alan White Yes both stating a joint North American tour starting in August. any thoughts about it (even though the majority of you probably wouldn't go)?

won't go---like seeing half a Yes show and I don't like Toto---Yes should never share a bill with another group--unless it's Steve Hackett.Cool

Yes and Magma would be fine... so that the British ones could learn that a band full of 60+ year old musicians can have a powerful drummer when they see the French ones... ha, ha, ha  Tongue

Even though it is not even close to their best, I might go if they actually promote their new album - or at least something else that isn't 40 years old.
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

I'll be sitting this one out.  Even though Yes are treading water at this point (and have been for years now), I'll always go see them play, but not if I have to sit through Toto.  As Toto won't be delegated to just being a "warm up" band, their presence will likely shorten the Yes set, which I do not approve of.

feel the same ---they shouldn't tour with a big AOR band ---something arty or folky is okay for a 30 min set but thats about it.

Contrary to popular PA opinion I happen to like Toto a great deal. Superb musicianship and songwriting. Like Yes obviously. I see the match.

I have seen both bands live several times so why not together although this is probably not the concertgoer any of the bands is hoping to see as none of the bands is going to win me over as a fan.

if that is the most ridiculous statement you ever read on here you live a sheltered lifeWink pretty common for Yes to not tour with anyone over the years---they seem to have long songs and long sets---but anyway knock yourself out loving Toto----not my kind of music Period. Think a lot of prog fans are not into them good musicians or not---rather go to a proper jazz concert but that's just my taste.

Toto? How many times can Rosanna kiss the rain down in Africa? And Yes without Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman (or at least Pat Moraz)? No thanks.

Yeah, but just being around adoring Toto fans would be enough to give me the skieves. Anyone but them.

They might as well tour with REO Speedwagon or Foreigner.  Yes and Toto are on the same label, so I am nearly positive this was a record label decision, not a band one.  All the recent Yes shows I've been to were sold out, so I don't see the purpose of doing this.  Maybe to cut touring costs?  Who knows.  I get the impression that the reason Yes are touring so constantly is because of recording contract requirements.  The possible heavy touring requirement is the same reason Jon Anderson likely couldn't return to the band.

Seriously though, I can't stand Toto.

I can't stand them either---they have teamed up with other "popular" bands for summer tours before.
It is impossible to make a living in music unless you tour. It's the only way.

And you've just correctly disagreed with calm-sea's explanation on why Yes is touring. Because that's where the money is! You are correct, sir! Big name acts like Yes no longer have to sign contracts requiring them to tour. It's that they have to! As for Anderson, well, the others pissed him off sufficiently enough while he was ill to send him running for z' hills.
