I'm going with one friend to this show, and we are really glad to hear that Steve has singer Nad Sylvan along for this tour. He has a nice Gabriel/Collins sound to his voice. Calprog contacted us for a meet and greet chance. So we're in the lottery for the after show. They say each person can get three items signed.The catch: only 60 lucky fans will win. The venue holds 1,250 and is nearly sold out.


Thought about it locally but felt it was way overpriced.

Correction: two items signed. And we are in!
It will cost me another 50bones, though. Only 300 people were originally contacted. The first 60 that reply 'yes' to the email; get to meet Steve and the band. So I'm in $130 now. Also, no long drive to LA. The venue is only 6 miles to the north. :smoke:

Does the Pope shit in the woods? :mrgreen: Yeah, Best Buy shipped it yesterday, along w/ the new Marnie Stern, and KEN mode. I haven't heard any of it online, I always prefer to hear new releases by my favorite artists for the first time on CD/vinyl on the home system. I saw them play 4-5 new songs in the last year or so. Sounded awesome live, seems to be more of a switch back to faster hard-rock mode, not so much the blues based groove-rock of the last few which I also enjoy.

Managed to see them last Oct. I agree they do seem to changing things up a bit which is good.

Neo-Psychedelic Pop-Rock Experimental music by four guys who got together in college. It's pretty out-there, but I'm going to have a hell of a lot of fun. I'm going to ride the bus in a matter of hours with a couple of my best friends... A good day is on the way... :smoke:

a note from avey tare:

To all of the AC fans out there. I feel its best you hear it right from the horses mouth. It kills me to have to postpone all these shows and it's something I could never even have imagined happening. I'm positive that we were as excited as you all to visit all of your towns and have a good time together. But because of the strain on my voice that's being caused by an intense case of strep throat, I am unable to play any of these shows. Unfortunately, I wasn't diagnosed soon enough and haven't been able to kick this in the right amount of time. We promise you all that we are doing everything we can to reschedule all these shows asap and we will be visiting your cities. We hope you can all understand and sympathize with the situation. It's been really fun for all of us to be playing these days and the energy you all give us makes us want to take it further and further with you and give it right back. Hopefully, we can continue to do this together soon. Until then. Stay Well.

The following tour dates are postponed and will be rescheduled as soon as possible:

3/17/13 - Madison, WI @ Orpheum Theatre
3/18/13 - Minneapolis, MN @ First Avenue
3/20/13 - St. Louis, MO @ The Pageant
3/21/13 - Kansas City, MO @ Midland Theater
3/22/13 - Denver, CO @ Ogden Theatre
3/23/13 - Salt Lake City, UT @ The Depot
3/24/13 - Boise, ID @ Treefort Festival

Saw the Oz Noy Trio with Dave Weckl and Anthony Jackson a couple days ago, in Chicago. Weckl and Jackson stole the show, imo. Oz was pretty good though. :)

Also last week I attended the Music Institute of Chicago performing 5 pieces from Yellow Shark. Pretty fuckin' good.

Yes was a good show. Seemed a bit stripped down, the new vocalist is good, but I'm a Steve Howe fan so that's what I mostly paid attention to anyway. The stage lights made it hard to take pics, so I mostly took pix of the big screen to check out what guitars he used that night.

After the show, I checked out the Line 6 setup:

Squire mostly played a single neck bass, but did pull out this monster:

Sure, he kept up. If I had my way, I suppose I'd pick Moraz, though I know most people are Wakeman fans. It did feel like there was space in the mix at times, as though some parts weren't being played. But, Alan White didn't have as large of a kit as when I saw them a few years ago. Back then, he had 6 tympani, 3 on each side triggered by extended footpedals, but here he didn't.
I had a blast w/ the entire albums of Close to the Edge, Going for the One and The Yes Album w/ Roundabout as the encore. Relayer is my favorite Yes album, but I've seen them several times over the years and in total have seen all of Relayer. So, while this wasn't my quintessential Yes performance, it was a great time. Y'all probably know this is the first tour performing "A Venture".
How many more times will I be able to see Yes? How long will Steve Howe keep touring? Questions, questions...

So this is a must see for a Yes fan RK? I Mean would it be worth the money for a non Yes fan to spend and perhaps become a Yes fan? I don't know doodly-squat about them except that Roundabout is played on the classics radio stations way to much.Say I was to pick a Yes album on youtube and listen to it all the way through,which one would you recomend I start with?
