Interview special 6 – Martin Jones’ view of Yes in concert

Interview special

Martin Jones went to the Bristol concert so it was great to talk to another Yes Music Podcast listener recently about his experiences.

During Starship Trooper this lady was thrown out…the first time I’ve ever seen that at a Yes concert!

Martin shares this and other reflections on the 2011 Yes tour.

Interview special

It was great to speak to another Yes Fan and Yes Music Podcast listener, Liam Barnes, about the Yes concert in Manchester.

“…someone’s got to be on-side from the press haven’t they?”

Liam is a journalist and has recently produced the following pieces for the Mancunian Matters website:

Yes please! Prog legends return to Manchester

Review: Yes @ Manchester Apollo 13/11/2011

(Apologies for the sound quality on this interview. Liam’s laptop microphone wasn’t brilliant but I thought it was important to let you hear what he had to say.)

Interview special 4 – Mark Toner’s view of Yes in concert

Yes fanatic – Mark Toner

Yes fan and Yes Music Podcast listener, Mark Toner, was kind enough to speak to me about the Glasgow Yes concert on the current European tour. Despite being a traditionally difficult audience, the concert went down very well, I understand.

G’on yerself Benoit

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!
