This show marked the sixth time I had seen Yes live, It was their return to Milwaukee where I had first seen them in 1976 at the old MECCA Arena downtown.... one of the top 3 concerts I have ever seen amongst hundreds.
This show was unique in that they played 3 entire albums. Even though the Yes members were aged in their mid 60's, they jammed for THREE HOURS STRAIGHT and sounded GREAT. It blew my mind.
I must say that I (and the rest of the crowd) thought Jon Davison stole the show. What a gifted musician in his own right who also mimicked beloved Jon Anderson's flare.
Little did I know that this would be the last time I would see Chris Squire perform. THE BEST BASSIST EVER.... PERIOD. Rest in peace Chris. I will always have a connection to you and all the Yes band members.
