San Diego, California
Copley Symphony Hall
20 years, 3 months and 24 days ago
SUPERB show,but Jon Anderson should of bothered and changed before he went on stage, he did not look like a rock legend(Wakeman did)he looked like your dad going to buy dog food.I agree his voice was amazing and made really look forward to the next album.8/10
What a great show! I don't know the capacity of Symphony Hall, but the entire floor level was just about full--packed with enthusiastic Yes-loving fans!
I don't know...1000? 1500?
The setlist was pretty much what has been reported here, and the band was in top form. Some minor flubs here and there, but the energy level and precision were all there.
I couldn't take my eyes and ears off Mr. Wakeman! While I due respect to all the fine keyboardists who have played with Yes over the years, Rick is definitely the one who was born for the role. He gave a magnificent and playful performance, looking like he was having the time of his life! While it wasn't a cape, his gilded trenchcoat certainly evoked his wizardly image from times past.
Jon Anderson's voice was as pure and strong as I've ever heard him. He must certainly have tapped into some fountain of youth. If only he would have bothered to dress for the gig...
Cool T-shirts at the merch table too. The Fragile and Tales covers are must-haves. If I had the cash, I would have gotten a program and a shirt with the band's faces on it. As usual, everything was overpriced, but not outrageous for a rock show.
