    Show me your ideal setlist only using the last 6 Yes albums

    So you can only chose songs from the last 6 Yes studio albums: The Quest, Heaven and Earth, Fly from Here, Magnification The Ladder and Open Your Eyes. And use at least one from each.

    Mine would look Something like this

    Lightning Strikes
    The Ice Bridge
    To Ascend
    Homeworld
    Hour of Need
    Man in the Moon
    Future Memories
    Into the Storm
    Fly from Here
    The Western Edge
    Open Your Eyes
    In the Presence Of

    Encore
    Time is Time
    Subway Walls

        Can we include From a Page (and therefore exclude OYE)?

            I would be super happy with The Ladder, all of it especially Finally which I consider the best song Yes has never played live, followed by Magnification minus Soft As A Dove and maybe We Agree with some highlights from The Quest (flexible) and OYE (guilty pleasures Wonderlove into Love Shine would be awesome) to round it out.

            Of course Jon and Chris would have to be there...

              Yeah I get not including return trip as really only one song difference but from a page is an album

              so hmm but I love open your eyes

              so I will be doing from the last 7 albums (including from a page and open your eyes but following the OP view of ignoring return trip)

                Playing by my own rules, here’s my 2.5 hour show setlist.

                Set one:

                To the Moment
                The Ice Bridge
                Homeworld (The Ladder)
                Light of the Ages
                The African Suite (Lightning Strikes, Can I? and Face to Face)
                In the Presence Of
                Into the Storm

                Set two:

                Fly From Here Suite
                Magnification
                The Western Edge
                New Language
                The Gift of Love
                Leave Well Alone

                Encore:

                  - Firebird Suite
                  - The Ice Bridge
                  - Spirit of Survival (with hammond organ replacing the orchestra part, that would really rock)
                  - It'll be a Good Day
                  - Light of the Ages
                  - The Western Edge
                  - Magnification
                  - Steve solo: Solitaire (Steve always has an acoustic solo!)
                  - To Ascend (acoustic)
                  - In the Presence Of
                  - New Language
                  - Subway Walls
                  - Fly From Here Suite
                  - Fortune Seller
                  - Homeworld (the Ladder)

                  Encores:

                  - Open Your Eyes
                  - Into the Storm

                  This would make for a show for just over 2 hours, so doable for the band. It has a nice variety of songs from all the albums and IMO a nice flow.

                        (I'm gonna be including From a Page and Open Your Eyes but one of them is an EP so it wouldn't be exactly 7 albums. 😏)

                        Set 1:

                        1) "Intro: Firebird Suite"
                        2) "To the Moment"
                        3) "Homeworld (The Ladder)"
                        4) "Hour of Need" (Full Length Version)
                        5) "Spirit of Survival"
                        6) "Lightning Strikes" - "Can I?" - "Face to Face"
                        7) "Believe Again"
                        8) "Words on a Page"
                        9) "New Language" - "Nine Voices (Longwalker)"

                        Set 2:

                        1) "The Ice Bridge"
                        2) "Open Your Eyes"
                        3) "Fly From Here Suite" (Preferably the 2011 version.)
                        4) "Mystery Tour"
                        5) "Future Memories"
                        6) "We Agree"
                        7) "Show Me" (Bonus but I'd love to see this return.)
                        8) "The Gift of Love"

                        Encore:
                        1) "Subway Walls"
                        2) "Into the Storm"
                        3) "A Living Island"

                        God, this was way too hard. There is a lot more songs I want to put in there but a triple set might be a bit pushing, even if I think that modern Yes can perform these ones really well.

                            I love New State of Mind, but have always thought because of the multi layered vocals it's nearly impossible to pull off live.

                              City of Love, The Calling, Rhythm of Love, it's doable... Heck give everyone a mic for the intro, and ask the crowd to sing along loudly! Or just have the guy under the stage handle it...
