I'm from cape breton Nova Scotia and have been into Yes for 3 years now. Going to see this band that i've listened to so much in the past few years pretty well fell as a dream come true. because i live so far away from the venues that Yes would play it is considered a bloody privilage to have seen them. As far as the show, i've read many reviews where the sound was bashed and other things, but to me these things were not important, infact, they were not even given a second of my though because i was so into the show. Sitting sixth row infront of Chris Squire there is no way that i could complain about the sound because i felt my insides vibrate more than once, and to me the 30+ experience of a touring band was impossible to miss. lets just say i've been praying every night that they return at lease to Canada one more time so my friends and I get the chance of a life time to see our all time favorite band blow us all away.
My name is Christian Emond from Longueuil qc, I was at the mtl show yesterday and it was fantastic.The sound quality was pretty flat at the beginning of the show but was greatly improved after close to the edge. here was the setlist: overture,close to the edge,and you and I,don`t go.in the presence of, gates of delirium,gailard.the clap,perpetual change,long distance runaround,ritual,i've seen good people,roundabout(encore).The added orchestra was in my opinion a great experience.I hope the will be a dvd of this tour one day.I agree with other reviews tht the keyboardist is less flamboyant than his predecessors.John Anderson told us that Alan White was pretty sick and got out of bed to give us the show.He played well,but seemed very tired at the end of the show.Chris Squire seemed in very good shape and jammed with the other musicians during ritual.The show lasted 2h and a half.
