My first Yes show. Typical cold winter evening in PA. My buddy and I drove up from the Northeast. Both of us doing some mellow blotter for the show, I'm certain we were not alone. Packed, somewhat rowdy crowd, firecrackers (common for 70s shows), Anderson was not pleased. Yeah lotsa mushrooms on the stage, stage smoke, and that giant bug, wow! Quadrophonic sound - it dang near ripped your head off! And when the bug opened up at the end of Ritual, again wow!!
I remember sitting on the floor with my friends and seeing all kinds of color mushrooms over the stage. That was the first stage I ssaw set up like that. It was really magical and when I get into a conversation about concerts, I always include the time I saw YES. Please tour again with Rick and the rest of the Yes gang. I will be there. Thanks for all your efforts and talent you have shared.
They oversold this one. I had to sit behind the stage and I didn't really enjoy it. I should have left my friends and got a good tiny spot by myself.
Yes played in Hershey, PA early March on the Tales tour that year. My first show. Overflow crowd caused a late start on the band only played the Ancient and Ritual. Fantastic show--wish I could remember more (too much acid and too long ago!) Been hooked ever since--on Yes, not acid.
