Tulsa Assembly Center
42 years, 6 months and 4 days ago
But seriously, this show was first rate, with Steve, Chris, and Alan meshing very nearly seamlessly with Geoff and Trevor. The Drama album brought back some of the power that was lacking in the mix on Tormato, as well as providing a refreshing environment for the remaining trio. The Deans did a great job on this tour, even though the scale of the stage production was scaled down in comparison to the 1976 show, for example. When parts of the ceiling flew down from the centuries old assembly center after Chris' solo, that said it all. Geoff's rendition of "Oklahoma" stole the show, by the way.
Yes visits Tulsa again? Skips Salt Lake - again. Is it something in the water that brings this band back to the dust bowl? What a show you must have gotten. An almost entirely new line up with Trevor Horn on vocals. Do you know who he is? Wow. Geoff Downs? I hope you're happy!
