HAVING SEEN FIVE SHOWS ON THE PREVIOS TOUR I WAS VERY EXCITED.WE DROVE FROM THE BRONX TO NASSAU COLISIEUM WITH HIGH EXCEPTIONS.AS ALWAYS THE MUSICANSHIP WAS INCREDIBLE BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE SET LIST
BASICALLY THE SAME (EVEN SHORTER ACTUALLY SILENT WINGS DROPPED)
IM GLAD WE WERE ABLE TO SEE YHE MEDLEY AGAIN AND CIRCUS OF HEAVEN BUT LOOKING BACK THEY SHOULD HAVE SHOOK UP THE SETLIST. GREAT SHOW NONETHELESS. ANOTHER SHOW UNDER THE BELT WITH MY TRUE FRIEND DOM.
my second concert [dickie betts was the first] we trained it in from eastern li to find we had a substantial cab ride ...alabama slammers were aflow... 18 and legal. but some how we were not too late. one of our crew pased out on the stairs and hurt her head.... my friend, her boyfriend took care [who ended up ok] while i rushed up the stairs to catch the opening song. I sat on the edge of the balcony[sat on some kind of fencing] for the whole concert and was informed by a veteran that if I closed my eyes the "effect" of yes would be better....Yes it was ... 5 years earlier my brother came home late and put the headphones on me barley awake. He made me an official member of the yes club...[those hip enough to 'get' yes. he took them off briefly during close to the edge
..i get up... i get down... and asked what i thought? 13 years old i said "It's beautiful"... I have a five year old son now, Egan. a couple of months ago i introduced him to the yes club with the headphones... i remembered my brother and that momement so i waited until i get up i get down began... i asked him what he thought ... he said "beautiful' Dad it's beautiful" i cried then as i iam now thinking about it.
