Yes, the British progressive rock pioneers from London who began their career in the late 1960s, still have a strong following and enjoy frequent radio play and album sales more than 40 years after their debut. But with their 2010 concert tour, they show that they have more than that… they have musicianship and skill that most bands from today’s generation can’t touch.
Char and I had the privilege of seeing them perform in Tunica, MS and were seated 2nd row, dead center stage. We were able to capture some photos and video with our Flip Ultra HD. Let this video inspire you to catch them on their 2010 tour. If you enjoy classic progressive rock, you will LOVE this tour!
The current lineup includes long time members Steve Howe on guitar, Chris Squire on bass, and Alan White on drums. The son of Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman – Oliver Wakeman – stepped in on keys and both looked and sounded just like his father! Vocalist Jon Anderson left the lineup for health reasons and was replaced by Benoit David who did a fantastic job covering the voice of the amazing Jon Anderson! The band’s sound was top notch and as is typical of Yes, Chris Squire and Steve Howe produced some stunning guitar and bass effects.
