This show was amazing. the band opened with "Cinema" then went straight into "Leave It". Each band member was lit by a spot light from above using fragmented beams of light. Very nice. The harmonies were perfect. I was very impressed that the band could pull this off live. Jon Anderson's vocals were true and haunting. The interplay between Trevor Rabin and Chris Squire made for a very entertaining time, especially during "City of Love" and "Starship Trooper". I have been to a great number of concerts over the years. This show - YES on the 90125 Tour - remains the best I have ever seen.
I was a senior in high school in Ocala, Florida. April 22 sounds right to me because it was still a little cool out in Jacksonville. I was a Yes fan before 90125 and nobody else in the school had heard of them. 90125 came out like lightning and I was surprised that Yes were putting out something that high school kids were into. I remember one guy remarking, "This new band put put out an album and EVERY song on the album is good." It was a novel idea for him.
The Jacksonville concert had a lot of lasers and the lasers were animated. The moving Yes logo and earth were really cool. Anderson wore a bright white outfit and he had a mike that had a wire that went to his waist and then went wireless. Alan White had a lot of electric drums. The band looked very up-to-date. I was heavily into Steve Howe so I missed him being in the band at the time but Trevor Rabin's solo "Sully's Beard" was nice.
I forget much of the concert because it was 20 years ago but if other people write the writings might spark other memories.
