Going by the recording, a bit of "Madrigal' was played before 'Clap' as well as before 'Silent Wings'.
My first concert ever. I had just turned 14 in August and spent my entire summer at sleep away camp listening to tapes that 2 girls from my class had been sending me. Was living in Long Island and we had to convince our moms to let us take the LIRR to the Garden to see the concert. I'll never forget. We had seats A1 and A2 as another friends father knew the photographer for the Garden and gots us the seats. Was life changing for sure. Magical, mystical..I'll never ever forget it.
I remember a great show even know my friend Jeff and I were triping on mesc micro dots. The rotating circular stage was fantastic. Great band, great memories.
The first time seeing Yes in the round. I originally had tickets for the Springfield, Mass., show; but had to sell them due to school starting. However, Madison Square Garden did not disappoint. While a unique lighting system as on past tours was absent, the musicianship was outstanding. I had a first row seat and secured excellent photographs of the band. The new songs from "Tormato" were performed with much luster. The spoken words on "Circus of Heaven" was a nice touch.
