    90 min Anderson Howe live setlist

    Just imagine with all the worries of the world ie global warming , Covid , Russia / US / Ukraine that Jon and Steve put everything behind them and toured an acoustic Set

    what would you want them to play

    for me

    Tales medley ( I loved Howe’s solo tour of this ) (15 mins)
    wonderous stories (4)
    To be over (6)
    soon (7)
    abbreviated CTTE (10)
    sweet dreams (5)
    long distance (5)
    Yours is no disgrace (7)
    Turn if the century (7)


    for starters

    It’s a very nice thought. They could weave OOALH into Sweet Dreams like ABWH did.

      Love that setlist! I'm sort of by myself in that I'd love Anderson to be back with Steve, and White, Wakeman/Moraz. But only to tour and sing the classic Yessongs. 44 years since CFTO , I have no desire for them to try to write anything else.

            Probably not a popular opinion, but I think I would skip this concert. The Anderson/Wakeman tour showed me that for me personally hardly any Yes songs, and certainly not the longer more intricate pieces, lend themselves very well to an acoustic treatment. I kind of liked the acoustic set on the 35th anniversary tour, but that is because they chose mostly shorter songs, of which some where already recorded originally semi acoustic (Wondrous Stories, The Meeting, Time is Time, Show Me), but all in all I prefer a full electric set with full songs.

              Well, I kind of agree with you. Over the years, I've seen Howe, Anderson and Wakeman solo. And while I greatly appreciate their talents, solo, it's just nowhere near seeing Yes when they were in their prime. Those songs need the full electric band, and seeing the watered down acoustic versions , I found myself wanting to hear the full band versions.

                I agree, too. I'm not a fan of solo shows in general.

                  As unrealistic as the other setlists before someone says Jon will neve sing anything off of Drama Fly From Here etc

                    It would be like hearing a piano transcription of a Mahler symphony, instead of hearing a full orchestra play it.
                    I have CDs of Stravinsky's ballets for piano, transcribed by the composer. They're of curiousity interest but no substitute for the real thing!
                    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
                    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

                      I've seen Steve do a bunch of stripped down and cut down Yes numbers.

                      I'd love to see that with Jon singing.

                      Or Jon for that matter...
