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 😉
