I definitely can tell Jon and Ian Anderson apart and I knew my mistake just when pressing "send". Sorry, besides the family names and a short first name there are no similarities whatsoever as they are both unique musicians and part of history.
I've seen YES only once before and was curious how the new members would fit in. And.... after some difficulties with the sound during the first couple of songs the band was as sensational as I knew them from the previous concert (The Ladder tour) or from DVD. Even though Ian and Rick can never be replaced due to their unique stiles Benoit and Oliver were fantastic replacements or even additions.
They have so much variety, ideas and play with so much passion (even though the show was not sold out) that every minute I felt to have that special contact with the musicians.
I just hope that return for more soon: preferably with new material. They definitely can count on me (and my friends who think the same.)
