        Yes, "A Living Island" would work well at the end of a set.

          Bondegezou, Hello! Your Where Are They Now? is important and much used. This setlist are not 'my choices'. That would be of odder, deeper cuts. This setlist accounts for a neo-classic (HomeWorld), new v old, their age and potentially difficult to play songs, the importance of presenting Schellen, and a centerpiece or 'hook' to market, this time The Remembering. So:
          Act 1
          Opening bars/heraldry from Believe Again
          Into The Lens
          Heart of the Sunrise
          Light of The Ages (Davison 'solo')
          Schellen solo (3:00)
          Mind Drive
          Starship Trooper
          Awaken
          Opening bars/ heraldry from Believe Again to close

          Act 2
          The Ice Bridge
          Homeworld
          Howe solo (7:00)
          The Remembering (abridged to 15:00)
          Sherwood solo (3:00)
          Tempus Fugit
          Leave Well Alone
          Roundabout Encore
          segue into Fly From Here reprise as Into The Storm to close


          Each act is about an hour. This looks like it leans modern, yet there are three long-forms, one which is an addition unheard since '74. It includes material the current members have been involved in so they maybe have interest, and (I think) the ending 1/3 of Leave Well Alone is a fine drone-y focus to end on. The heraldic openers and closers are 1- fans like one touch of cleverness, and 2-- they're very appropriate. Endless things left out: In The Presence Of is a glaring omission. South Side of The Sky would work well. But..... thanks for the chance here..... send this to Steve lolol.....

            If it wasn't for the fact that they are playing Relayer in its entirety I'd say your setlist is near perfect. I would definitely go see this

              After much thought, I think this is probably the most accurate, although, yes, take out "Nine Voices" and "Future Memories" to make room for "Starship Trooper" at the end… There's just no escaping that reality, is there? Even in Everything Everywhere All At Once, every Yes concert ends with Roundabout/ST…

              Given Relayer in there, I don't think there will be many/any curveballs or surprises (they're not Springsteen, playing 3.5 hour sets where they can squeeze a whole album in the middle and still play greatest hits plus a ton of weirdos); *maybe* one song from a new album, and maybe "The Ice Bridge" to represent the 1980-2023 years, but that's probably it.

                  As long as Teakbois is in the setlist, I'm good.

                    I think the setlist for Europe 2023 will be different than for an eventual US tour. So I think for the European tour they will keep some songs in they played in the US and the UK last year (so the UK will see some songs doubled) as Yes isn't a band who completely changes setlists from year to year or tour to tour. I also think the new album will be out around the time of the tour. And I see they have sort of a pattern in and order for these albums tours setlists; first set open with some familiar songs, throw in a 60s song from the first two albums, possibly a drama track, one or two new songs and end the first set with a classic. Second set; the album on which the tour is based plus the standard encores.

                    So here's my guess:

                    - Firebird Suite
                    - On the Silent Wings of Freedom (abridged version)
                    - I've Seen All Good People
                    - Looking Around (or at least a song from the first two albums(
                    - The Ice Bridge
                    - New Song
                    - Wonderous Stories
                    - Tempus Fugit
                    - Perpetual Change (although even though they did the whole of CTTE last year I can also see them put AYAI into this slot(

                    Intermission

                    - Gates of Delirium
                    - Soundchaser
                    - To Be Over

                    Encores:

                    - Roundabout
                    - Starship Trooper

                    Now this is not my wish setlist, but one that I actually think is the most realistic.

                      Quite realistic. I hope they do 2 from the Quest + a new song, and take away the silent wings of freedom abridged, which i think ultimately failed.

                        Or better yet, maybe Steve has gotten over his allergy to the first part of the song and they perform a more faithful version of it as the closer to the first set. Not likely, I know…

                        Here’s my somewhat realistic but probably not correct setlist:

                        Going for the One
                        Tempus Fugit
                        Sweet Dreams
                        And You and I
                        Steve solo slot
                        New song 1
                        New song 2
                        The Ice Bridge
                        On the Silent Wings of Freedom
