    Tourmato Video - 2018 Update!

    In honor of the 50th anniversary (and the 40th anniversary of this tour!),
    I have re-synced, re-edited and incorporated all available footage of this tour into one seamless presentation.
    Kick back with a tub of popcorn, a couple of beers (perhaps a little something to smoke...)
    and enjoy a typical Yes-at-their-best live show from the last great tour of the seventies!

    Well, it's morning here and I have to get to work, so no beer and no smoke, but then again your video seems to be smokin' in itself! Great job from what I've seen and heard so far, thank you for all your hard work and congrats with the excellent result!

    Could you perhaps share which different sources you've used for this?

    Ahem...perhaps I should first learn to actually look and then ask the question... I see the info is in the YouTube video.

    WOW!!!! Very awesome!

    Edited to add: Just realized you used that incredible Wembley Wurm version for the audio on Starship Trooper. That was incredible! Had to watch it twice in a row. I can't thank you enough for this.

    Here's a link to a site full of live Yes: http://www.yessongs.nl/index.html

    Choose the Tormato Tour Page and scroll down to October 28th 1978.
    Pick a version (the descriptions will tell you the differences between them),
    Then scroll back up to get the Stack link, find the version you want and download!

    Fantastic job. You should be hired by the band for all future releases and restorations

    A pleasure to watch...

    I remember buying this recording on LP back when LP boots were the coolest thing to own when owning all the albums was not enough, and hearing songs that were not on the Yesshows album made listening so much fun.

    It always made me wonder what if Yesshows was a triple album like Yessongs and if some of these tracks would of made it on there.

    The one thing that completely blew my mind was the moog solo in Starship Trooper... to this day it is my favorite solo by Wakeman by far...it's a fantastic solo if you have your "loudness" button on, bass on full... and hearing it through some big fat 18 inch woofers, the low octave maneuvers in the beginning of the solo would shake the dishes right off my table.... simply bad ass prog at it's best. :)

    a great video... thanks for the hard work you put into it :)

    I wish they would bring the Close Encounters opening music back again.

    me too.... there is something severely riveting about that opening to a Yes show.... even if they did it right after the firebird would be even better for a fan like myself... my mind would be blow before they even played the first song!

    Amazing work. Had a lot of fun this morning seeing the band back in their glory days full of power & majesty. Never mind the Led Zep DVD in 2003, this is just as good and using much less helpful material.

    The Tourmato tour is one of my favourites, if not my favourite in terms of listening to the various boots out there, but this adds another dimension. Wembley matinee 78 was also my first gig seeing Yes. Very special.

    Even if the official supporting management can’t be bothered to issue anything of note to celebrate the 50th year, this will do very nicely.

    Many thanks for spending the time putting this together.

    This is ----ing amazing, seriously. Any Yes fan ought to watch this. It's gone beyond the point of bits of 8mm clips. The editing and the sheer amount of footage that's come to light makes this practically a complete concert film for this tour. The Yes management should be employing people like Hed G to be doing this.
    Peace, love, long live rock n roll

    Definitely a labor of love.

    By the way, I've forwarded the youtube link out to a bunch of my non-internet savvy Yes friends and they are all completely blown away. Again, I (we) can't thank you enough.

    Thank you! Now, if anyone here could forward this to the band...
    I actually handed Rick Wakeman a DVD copy of the old version after his solo show in Tel Aviv back in 2014
    but I don't think he actually watched it.

    Maybe send copies to the bands Manager Martin Darvill at QEDG Management

    The Grange, Northlew Road, Okehampton, Devon EX20 3DA, England

    He could likely pass copies on to the band.

    If you want to contact him first his email is management@qedg.co.uk

    Well I live close enough to Rick to put a copy in his letter box. If you pm me a link to a site where I can download it and then I can burn a DVD etc. I’ll do that for you.

    I am also seeing him live on his piano portraits tour later in the year, but can’t guarantee to see him personally.

    That's actually kind of tricky, as the movie is too large to fit on a standard DVD without quality loss.
    I've sent Remy Menting an un-authored mpeg file which will be up on his site in a couple of weeks
    (when he gets back from his holiday!). I'll let you know when it's download-able.
