    Who is running the convention? I may want to get your some YESFANS shirts or something from the Yesfans Shoppe to give away if you are doing any type of thing like that???
    "YES" - Music that could make God cry with joy. Either you get it or you don't.

    Tim, nothing is yet official on the fan fest. But like the one in England, if it goes it will be an official one with the full cooperation of the band. But details are being worked out. It would be charitable too like the one in England was. Here's hoping. I'm so glad they picked Philadelphia once again! Ed Sciaky would be in his glory!!

    I would love to attend this! I joined the FB page, but I certainly would love to have a Yesfans meetup there too.

    Brian Neeson (posts here as YesCelt and is a member of the Scottish Yes Network) plus international Yes travellers Ruth Zurawka & Jim Tauberg (Ruth did the Chris Squire bracelets and Yes 50th anniversary passes that were distributed worldwide.) from Pittsburgh.

    Wow, that would be cool. I hope I can make it if it happens. Philadelphia seems like the best place to have a convention for this band. I actually attended a yes convention in NJ back in the eighties.

    It took a few tries. but I got through eventually. If you experience difficulty in getting a ticket for the FanFest, keep trying and use a new browser if necessary - I got all the way to the final step, and then it decided not to work. Switching browsers fixed the snafu.

    I wish they could bring the inflatables from the 35th anniversary tour so we can all bounce on them.

    But seriously, I expected to totally miss this tour since I am based in Arkansas. Now I am definitely going to the fan convention and the show for my birthday present!

    I bought my FanFest tix for $64.00 each. Someone said they paid $98 for one. Don't do that. It shouldn't be more than about $64 with the fees.

    Agreed.

    $64 is what I paid too. (How in the hell is someone being charged $98 already? Is it sold out already and that's the price on secondary sites?)
