I had an amazing time in London with new and old Yes friends on 21st June 2022. The concert was stunning and you'll hear me banging on about it in this episode.

A magical evening of Yes music in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Close To The Edge which was performed perfectly to a full house at one of the most iconic of all venues.

It's only the 10th time Yes have played at the RAH and it's also 10 years since Jon Davison joined the band.

  • What was the performance like?
  • How did the setlist work?
  • What was the experience like?

This week we have the chance to talk about Yes live in concert for the first time in 3 years. Mark and I give our reactions to the setlist choices and then our roving reporter, Simon Barrow has sent in the first of his audio diary entries. He will be attending every show on the tour (apart from the warm up gig) and will be keeping us up-to-date as he goes.

  • What have the first concerts been like?
  • What is the setlist like?
  • Will fans be able to get to the concerts next week?

We are all, as Yesfans, still reeling from the news of the death of the great Alan White and the forthcoming tour will sadly be a very different experience.

This week we return to the second part of our examination of Steve Howe’s guitar work on Tomorrow’s self-titled album.

There's also a chance to announce the winner of the amazing Asia in Asia box set. Stay tuned for that as well as a Happy Birthday to Mark!
