This show was to be the final live appearance of Mr. Sherwood with Yes. Steve Howe eagerly awaited his sole occupancy on the "Yes guitarist" throne for the forthcoming ‘Masterworks’ tour. All the best, Billy!
It was a wonderful show, the music was absolutely brilliant, the saound was very loud, yet very clear. Jon's voice is unbelievable for his age, as celestial as it has ever been. Steve's playing is from an outer world, he plays as if he is not a human bean! Alan and Chris are very precise and very exact. I couldn't believe that a man older than 50 years could hit the drums with such powerful and accurateness as Alan does. As for Igor, he's doing great his job and he seems indeed to be the best replacement for Rick Wakeman.
The highlights were, like always, And You And I and Awaken, magical pieces of music. As for the setlist, the only difference was "Hearts", which was played before Awaken.
Once again, it was a night to remember, thank you "Yes" for the magic you have given us!!
