I was locked out of this show and was tripping on acid ( i was 19!) i got in for the encore and it was the best Starship trooper i ever heard.. EVER and I have seen them upwards of 60 times. was it the acid? who knows but i read someone else thought so.. so i had to write this!! big hugs to all and may yes return soon
I was sitting in in an aisle seat and my fiance Sara and I got to shake Jon's hand as he came down to the stage. One of the best Starship Troopers I have ever saw or heard!!! It was a great concert, but the last one Sara would get to see. She was killed by a drunk driver on Tuesday night August 15, 1989 RIP.
I have seen quite a few different Yes tours and there is no question in my mind that the ABWH shows were absolutely the best experience with Yes I've ever had.
I saw the show at the Garden State Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. I was literally overwhelmed by the whole thing. The sound was refined and precise, the band was having a blast, and the crowd was very responsive to them. All of the solos were impressive, And You And I made me cry (seriously), and Wakeman's solo in the middle of Close To The Edge was exhilarating. The show was nearly perfect, and I attribute that to the lineup.
Tony Levin was incredible. His stage presents was tremendous and his solo along with Bruford (right after Themes) brought the house down and the entire crowd to their feet. I'll never forget it.
Though I'll admit that Squire's song writing talents can never be replaced, I would rather see Levin touring with Yes any day. Squire just isn't as impressive on stage. Levin played his bass like it was part of his body.
