    Twas interested in seeing them here in Oregon, then saw that tickets begin (begin!!) at $242 and go up to nearly $500. I’m afraid I’m going to have to say “No!” to Yes.

    Saw Yes for the first time in 36-years here on March 26, 2014 in Winnipeg, Manitoba – Canada. It’s been a week since attending the ‘Three Album Tour’ and still I’m amazed by the musicianship of Steve, Geoff, Alan, Chris and Jon. It’s one thing to listen to Yes on vinyl all these years, but to experience the magic of Yes live is another experience all together. I’m greatful that Yes kept Winnipeg in their sights during this tour, and Chris’ generosity at remembering that Yes last visited the ‘peg back in 1979. “Thank you Yes for an amazing show. You’ve inspired the world with your songwritting and influenced musicians alike for the past 4-decades. Yes fans around the world look forward to your upcoming release ‘Heaven and Earth’ (July 7, 2014). The ‘Yes’ fans of Winnipeg, Manitoba anxiously await your return hopefully in late 2014 or early 2015 in support of your new CD. Winnipeg loves ‘Yes’ and we invite the ‘Yes’ fans around the world to visit Winnipeg as we make our city your home should Yes return ‘grace’ us with yet another great show!”
