The dates of the shows herein were compiled from Steve Sullivan's "Yesgigs 1968-1980" with special thanks to Paul Cobb for help on the 1968-1970 tourdates and Karl Speck for help on the 1971-1972 tourdates. The dates for the 90125, BG, and ABWH tours came from fellow Yesheads 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 Tour, Talk Tour, SLO Shows, Know Tour, OYE Tour, TL Tour, Masterworks Tour, Magnification Tour, 2002/FC Tour, 35th Tour, CTTEaB Tour and ITP Tour info was gleaned from NFTE, Yesworld and the kind folks at AMY ( In addition to these sources, data was compiled from first-hand reports, print articles and books, "Notes from the Edge", and "recordings of indeterminate origin" (ROIOs, a.k.a. 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 ROIOs (audio and/or video) if any have been reported. This site also contains many graphics, including tourbooks.
