This was my second Yes show after seeing '78 at the IA in Chicago. I was dissapointed before of course about not having Howe and Wakeman there but I fully supported Jon's excitement at a #1 hit and the new Yes. So, I took my new girlfriend. We sat near the back and I enjoyed the show. Jon did look stiff because he was using a wierd looking microphone head gear that made him stand stiffly. Kathy said he looked like a space man. Even though I 'm not a big Rabin fan. It was nice to see the band successful and new Yes fans being born. Trooper was so loud at the end it hurt and they lowered the light systems down so to make it look like a space ship was landing.
This was my first YES concert. All I can say, I was happy 15 year old teenager at the end of the concert. the pre- show cartoons was really cool. It was a night I will never forget.
