This database was composed from first hand reports, magazines, past NFTE's, and bootlegs. Each entry lists the date, city, venue, capacity, lineup, the setlist (when available), notes on the particular show, between song dialog transcripts, official recordings (audio and/or video) and bootlegs (audio and/or video) if available. This site also contains many graphics including tourbooks.



The dates of the shows where compiled from Steve Sullivan's "Yes Gig List From 1968-1980". Special thanks to Paul Cobb with help on the 1968-1970 tourdates. The dates for the 90125, BG, and ABWH tours came from fellow Yesheads submitting dates and the Yes Rarities list (with a special thanks to Shoji Yamada, Eduardo Paulo, Eddie Lee and John Huebner for help with the ABWH dates, mega thanks to John Huebner and Shoji Yamada for the BG dates and one last thanks to Steve Wehner and John Huebner for big help with the 90125 dates.) The Union, Talk, SLO, Open Your Eyes, The Ladder, Masterworks and Yessymphonic tour dates where taken from NFTE and Yesworld.

Shoji Yamada whose devotion to this site will always be appreciated.
