    Close to the Edge, The Yes Album, Going for the One. Back to back to back, in their entirety, with Roundabout for an encore. 3 hours of absolutely absurdly good music, played by absurdly good musicians. If this tour is coming near you, you really need to check it out.

    Was it the Yes tribute band named "Close to the Edge"?

    I saw the March 14 show in Omaha, Holland Performing Arts Center, 12th row. I saw YES in '75, '76, and '77. It felt like a privilege to see them again. Don't miss it if you're a YES fan.

    I don't think they're coming around here, but you can be certain that if they do, I'll be there. Glad you enjoyed it!

    For 99% of it, if you close your eyes, it's like hearing Jon Anderson. Very, very good singer.

    Saw their Reno show last month.

    Jon Davison is a very good singer. Not an Anderson clone by any means (see Journey's new singer), but really does the songs the justice they deserve. If you gotta replace Jon A., this is the guy to have.
