Tomorrow September 7, 2018, Eagle Vision will release “YES: 50th Anniversary Live At The Apollo” on DVD, Blu-ray, 2CD and 3LP.
In 2016, Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman combined their incredible talents and the heritage of YES to take to the road for a series of concerts celebrating the band’s musical legacy from the seventies to the nineties. YES feat. JON ANDERSON, TREVOR RABIN, RICK WAKEMAN brought their live show to the U.K. in early 2017, including this sell-out performance, captured live at the Manchester Apollo.

With a setlist embracing the spectrum of their career, including classics “Roundabout”, “Owner Of A Lonely Heart”, “And You And I”, “Hold On”, “Heart Of The Sunrise”, “Rhythm Of Love”, “I’ve Seen All Good People”, “Awaken” and many more, the band were on superb form.
Wakeman’s keyboard sorcery wove its spell alongside Rabin’s masterly guitar skills and founding member Jon Anderson’s unique vocal and lyrical prowess to create a special night of musical alchemy for their fans.

The sound is fantastic, crystal clear.As said, the set list is pretty much everything a fan could ask for, but there’s also relatively obscure deep cuts like “Lift Me Up” (from 1991’s Union).
Also included is the epic “Awaken,” from the 1977 Going for the One LP, presented here in its full 22 minute glory by Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman, who are joined by drummer Lou Molio III and bassist Lee Pomeroy. It’s nearly impossible to fill the vacancy left by late co-founder Chris Squire, so Pomeroy avoids trying to be a carbon copy.

Still, the star of the show is Anderson, whose signature voice still sounds warm and strong after five decades, and is clearly having a great time leading this edition of the band. And of course, there’s Trevor Rabin, one of the most incredible and complete musicians from the last forty years
For the most part, the group sticks close to the original songs, but they’re not afraid to throw in some twists and turns along the way — a forward-looking way to pay tribute to its illustrious past.
