    I think Geoff mentioned plans for 2019...? But if Steve and Alan decided to close shop, that is their call and I would respect that. But the youngins' of Geoff, Billy, JD, and Jay, seem pretty fired up. So does Steve come to think of it. He was incredible on the Drama album they did live!

    Where are you, in Las Vegas or the Sahara desert? A fart attack is more likely... Just make sure you don't sneeze and burp at the same time, and you should be okay.

    He’s probably still thinking Heat Of The Moment is a Yes song after they played it several times last year.

    However, they had a lot of hit songs in the 80s- they could play a few of those, and then maybe a token song from each decade thereafter, and really give a sense that this is a band that's been making music for 50 years and not just a band that celebrates some band from the 70s with the same name.
    I think Chris got it right when he commented something along the lines of how well it worked when Rabin adapted songs Howe originally played on, but it didn't work nearly so well the other way around. Howe really doesn't play Owner well at all, and ESPECIALLY that picking bit directly following the solo, and I can't see it being much different no matter what Yeswest song they might tackle.

    You got that "phoney moron president" bit right. Laughing stock of the rest of the world. But, y'know, he's all about making America great again. LOL

    it's a sort of damming indictment on how they appear think everything post 90125 is irrelevant.
    This never happens - Me; I had Pizza last night; it tasted soooo good. Other guy; I hate Pizza! it sucks! Me; oh man, now my pizza last night didn't taste good.
    So why do people think this should happen - Me; Man, I listend to 90125 last night. I loved it! Other guy; I hate 90125, it sucks!
    Me; Oh man, now I didn't love it!

    They tend to only play new material on the tour for that album, maybe the next your, and then drop it. I think they did this for Talk, Open Your Eyes, The Ladder, FFH, and H&E. Maybe the Magnification material lasted a little longer considering they played it with Rick after he returned to the band. This isn't a new phenomenon for the band.

    They did play "Nine Voices" on one of the cruises in the last few years. And they did Believe Again on that same cruise.

    Indeed. Given that it's the band's 50th anniversary, it would be good if they showed confidence in at least two or three tracks from recent albums. Very much doubt it, though.

    The term believe "Believe Again" doesn't apply too much to the band's post 1980 material except from OOALH and RoL for the most part with a couple exceptions that you cited plus Hearts in the late 90s. One (tour) and done.
