May I humbly point out that if it is a European tour, then the correct terminology is 'autumn' not the Americanism 'fall.'

I love America and its countrymen, but I also love the English language. Yes are an English band, from England, touring, amongst other places, England. Therefore, please, AUTUMN.

Thanks!

Nevertheless, the front page of the tour section now reads 'European' rather than 'Fall' tour. So there!

Thanks.

Benoit is from Canada; Alan has been living in Seattle for many years; Chris has lived/is living in the U.S.A also for some time; our beloved Jon, although not in this Yes besides in spirit of course, has been a California dwelling soul for a long time too.

The defense rests, your honor.

That would be the OJ defence team presumably? Equal logic!

Which fits neatly into the 'whatever' school of argumental propositions.

And ergo, by that argument, Madonna is British. However, feel free to have her back anytime you want.

Er, Jon is now a US citizen. Doesn't change Yes being an English band though, despite most of them abandoning the mother country, but a minor point.

Can't for the life of me see why they wanted to move away myself. Hold on, just have to nip out and remortgage the house to pay for the fuel for my car! 70 bloody litres. Jesus!
