    So true. Up there with one of my favorite Yesshows as well.

    What other show data could have been posted from Henry's blog?

    If that means at some point in time for some years you'll end up looking like Brad Pitt, then you're one lucky bastard...
    ReAwaken (after the Bethlehem Sands concert 2016):
    Sometimes in music, the songs can transcend the band members themselves - I think Yes is such a band.

    Perhaps in 50 years or so. My skeleton will be a bit longer, but other than that we could pass for twins. If he wants it to happen any sooner, he better get working on a beer gut. :-)

    Re: ARW recent ticket sales.

    On their previous peri-cruise leg, again not well advertised, the 11 Nov show sold 1,061 tickets, grossing $66,165; the 12 Nov show sold 821 tickets, grossing $51,792; and the 13 Nov show sold 1,730 tickets, grossing $91,974.
    821 tickets. That's just unbelievably *sad* no matter which band. It would be sad for The Knack. Ratt. Or even A Flock of Seagulls, let alone a band that once sold out giant stadiums.

    How many tickets would the Buggles sell?

    I've been in audiences as small as 2. If the music's great, it isn't sad.

    OK, 2 is a little unusual, but plenty of very good acts happily and regularly play to audiences below 1000. There are great venues with three figure capacities. I saw Firefly Burning at the The Slaughtered Lamb in central London: capacity 150. I saw Harmony in Diversity at the Underworld in Camden Town: capacity 500. I saw an early acoustic show by Pure Reason Revolution at ULU: audience below 100. All great gigs: no indication that the acts were unhappy.

    I went to see Caravan some years ago in a small venue, we must have been 200 in attendance at the max. And they played a great show.

I've not seen any firm figures from their European tour in 2016, but the Royal Albert Hall was nearly sold out and that's got a 3,500 capacity.

    On their previous peri-cruise leg, again not well advertised, the 11 Nov show sold 1,061 tickets, grossing $66,165; the 12 Nov show sold 821 tickets, grossing $51,792; and the 13 Nov show sold 1,730 tickets, grossing $91,974.

    Two dates on the Yes/Toto tour in 2015 were the 8 Aug show, which sold 1,982 tickets, grossing $171,944, and the 23 Aug show sold 2,006 tickets, grossing $205,106.

    Looks to me that both bands usually sell in the 1-2k range, although occasional shows do better. Will report more figures as I see them.

    Both bands selling close to the same number of tickets is a result that a lot of folks would likely expect. I think you’d probably get a moderate bump from a combined band due to publicity and the potential return of some holdouts who support one current band over the other or who don’t support either current band due to the absence of Anderson from one band and the absence of Howe from the other, but I doubt it would be anything earth shattering unless there were some folks at Rhino or wherever promoting the tour who really earned the f*ck out of their money. At this point I’m glad I got into Yes just barely early enough that I saw them a couple of times in some large venues with 10,000 or so fans. Smaller shows are nice, but I think there was something unique and sort of culturally defining about that whole arena rock experience...more than a concert, a ritual.

    So the majorty just couldn't care less, and those who do care are mostly prissy old focks who can't let a grudge go.

    Absolutely! I saw Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy show in Fall River, Mass., earlier this month. The venue's capacity was about 200. I'd say it was half full. But Carl and the band put on a fantastic show. To me, anyway, it was anything but sad. (And, at about $50 per ticket, Carl still grossed some $5,000.)

    Spock's Beard visits Budapest every time although i's a small venue with a max capacity of 600 people, and it's usually 3/4 full. It would be nice if it were a bigger audience, for sure, but the atmosphere is is fantastic, and the people are very enthusiastic.
