Interview special 2 – Andy’s view of Yes in concert

Yes fanatic – Andy

I had a great chat with the ever-generous Andy about the Yes concert in Birmingham he attended on 11th November 2011. Another top Yes Music Podcast listener, Andy’s reflections give a fascinating insight into the current Yes line-up and their performance at Symphony Hall.

If they came again in six months time, I’d go again – I’d be there!

Coming up in future interview specials – Ben Craven – a real-life, prog rock hero!

If you have a Yes story you’d like to share, please get in touch – I’d be more than happy to speak to you via Skype!

Oliver Wakeman re-joins Yes (not really)

Yes are playing at Birmingham Symphony Hall on 11th November, 2011. I can’t afford to go, sadly, but I took a look at the website. Imagine my surprise to see from the photo on the site that Oliver Wakeman will be appearing! Ah, no, wait…that’s an old press photo:

Birmingham Symphony Hall Yes advertisement
Alan White, Chris Squire, Benoit David, Steve Howe and...oh hold on...

Yes ‘no support’ shock!

Also, I was dismayed to see that, according to the advertisement, there is no longer any support for the band we all love, despite the concert being practically sold out already! Oops, wrong again…sorry 😉
