I have been a fan of the band since discovering Jon Anderson on King Crimson's LIZARD album. I've been to many, many concerts. YES has been my favorite band since THE YES ALBUM. I count myself lucky to have had a "favorite band" to follow for all these years. But, I haven't gone to many of the band's recent tours, because they were starting to embarrass me. Sadly, old age had taken its toll. Last year, I went to see ARW, and I was THRILLED with the performance! So, when this 50th anniversary tour came up, I decided to take a chance. It wasn't anywhere near the best of concerts, but it wasn't the worst YES concert. My more positive review reflects the choice of songs they played, (there were some pleasant surprises), several of the songs sounded strong, and I loved the stage set-up. (I can understand why someone would consider that last point irrelevant.) Jon and Billy may have been the strongest performers out there, which is kind of sad. That's probably the last concert for me...

Hi was at the richmond show and thought it was ok. Not as good as the National years ago. Unfortunately during the first set could not.even hear Howes guitar riffs due to overplay of the bassist.disapointing. nice to see Steve talking after Chris' departure.

I think he was referring to Yes featuring ARW not Yes with Steve. Dumbass

Awful! I’m an intermediate long time guitar player and Howe totally disappointed. He looked pissed and was no fun. Played 15 songs, 4 oldies. That’s it. Play to your audience Steve. Singer, bass player, young drummer and keyboards kept us from leaving. They were better than Howe. Felt bad for White last few songs. He should hang it up. Very disappointed. Save your money, don’t go.

I saw my first Yes show in 1972 on the CTTE tour and it remains one of the most memorable concerts of my life. Last night's Yes ft.ARW, not so much. Jon Anderson ,at 74, is still in good form vocally and is amusing to watch as he zooms about the stage in slo-mo. Rick Wakeman,despite his cape,seemed less wizardly at his keyboards, and the sound system certainly didn't help his cause. He seemed bored with the whole show. Rabin was Rabin. Not a real fan of where he took Yes,and for a 50th anniversary tour,the set list seemed heavily weighted towards whatever it is one calls his Yes style. The real standout in this Yes review was bassist Lee Pomeroy who seemed genuinely pleased to be on stage compared to Mrs. Wakeman and Rabin. His solo on Heart of the Sunrise was actually the highlight of the show. And then there was Awaken. Was that title ironic? I left when Jon plugged in his little harp and started wafting towards Rick. Think it's time the name is retired.

Terrible sound. Slightly better for the second half. If you're expecting YES magic you won't find it here. As a huge YES fan since the 70's, this concert was just sad. The biggest disappointment was, as usual, Geoff Downs. He simply will not or can not learn the Wakeman parts. Surrounded by $50,000 of equipment, I didn't hear one decent sound. The keyboard player in my band can play rings around this guy. Jon Davidsons vocals were as close to Andersons as one might get. Billy Sherwood played well...those are big shoes to fill. The tour drummer was excellent however Alan White, just after back surgery, played the last few songs...should have stayed home and rested. Just can't recommend this tour. Steve Howe can't pull it off alone. Perhaps the Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman version of YES has some surprizes.

90 minutes in and no hits, sorry but for 50 Year nostalgic concert, you played what you wanted, not what the crowd wanted to hear. So disappointed, left early and played Spotify YES on the way home
