This show was impecable. A friend of mine had promo tickets because he was working in a record store. Thanks Eric! I remember I found strange that Trevor Rabin was doing all the piano parts in the begining of Endless Dream. I would have thought Tony Kaye was playing those. And I was also surprised that Chris Squire seemed to have the same enthusiasm playing Roundabout for the encore, jumping up in the air in the final ta-da-da-da... And then when the show was over, he cheered the crowd with a glass of wine. My friend was a bit disappointed at the end because he wished he would have been picked up by the roadies to go backstage, but they only seemed to pick up nice looking ladies.
My first Yes concert...What a night! I was 13 at the time so I couldn't afford better tickets than the nosebleeds. However, as I was going up the stairs, a guard came up to my aunt and me and exchanged our tickets. Since not many tickets were sold, the venue had been adapted into a theater setting. At our delight, we ended up with sidestage tix!!! We were sooo thrilled. I was very happy to see the band so close. I couldn't believe it. The sound was impeccable. One of the best shows I have ever seen!
