I was at this show too and I remember it being half full at the beginning but by the end it was nearly full and I was amazed thinking where did all these people come from I didnt hear them come in(was trippin pretty good too) great show as usual
Yes, it was my first YES concert as well, and I also really thought the Popeye Cartoon was cool. If my memory is correct it was the "sinbad" popeye cartoon, a early color one for popeye. Also, the upper part of Freedom Hall was basically empty and most folks including myself and my friends moved to the floor area. There is a cassette audience tape made of this show, it's about a C- in quality, but at least there is a copy. I was a senior in high school and it's amazing that YES is still going! I hope they come back to Louisville, Kentucky again. Highlights for me: Hold On, Changes, Shoot High Aim Low, Heart of the Sunrise!, Love will find a way. Downers: the same solo pieces by the band from the 90125 tour had been redundant. Nice to hear Rabin on guitar, such a great player and writer! Cheers - Yay for YES!
My first YES concert! What can I say? One never forgets the first time. IT WAS AWESOME! I thought the opening Popeye cartoon was cool too!
Freedom Hall half full. Still, good show. Chris had false start on I'm Running. I think the crowd was very appreciative but sound bounced alot. Should have booked Louisville Gardens. That place rocked with many a Yes concert.
'Almost Like Love' is the full album version from here on out until it is dropped from the setlist.
'Love Will Find A Way' played like the album version through the rest of the tour.
