So I don't know if anyone else has seen them recently but I just saw them at Treasure Island here in Minnesota Friday night, and I was looking forward to the show since I found out about it a couple of months ago. Yes is my second fav. group and I was absolutely blown away by them. They were phenomenal, played many favs and I even got the pleasure to hear Awaken, which is one of my favs by them. One of my friends went with me, he didn't know who Yes was before I asked if he wanted to go to the show with me, and he really enjoyed the show as well.

They expanded many of the songs, changed things up, especially with Awaken, and I know many people think Trevor Rabin is no Steve Howe, but I thought he was amazing. Anyways, just wanted to share my excitement. BTW, Jon Anderson's voice has never aged and its hard to believe he is 72. Wakeman, the drummer, and bass player were great as well, and you could tell the band was having a very good time.

^ Jamie, what a lucky girl you are ! Wish I could see/hear them, too.

BTW, do you know this DVD from 2002

Take my word, it's top notch musically and visually, all the boys are still there (except Rick) and in excellent form.

Well, thank you! I felt very lucky. Anyways, I actually have the blu-ray of that performance and it truly is top notch. I actually have a few of their concerts but that one is my fav out of all of them.

Hi,

I'm pretty sure this had another thread where I think I posted a review ... it was a very nice show and RW, specially, was really good!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now you know what the inner art is all about!
