    ^They haven't 'always done' it (I know that was the original quote rather than you), I doubt it's been in the set for 50 years. Soundchecks, well, who knows.

    I took the quote: "something they did from their earliest days, have always done & nobody does better" as to be covers, in general. The blurb in the press articles all had something like this: "Yes will perform songs from throughout their Hall Of Fame career and will honor John Lennon as White was the drummer for some of Lennon’s solo tracks such as “Imagine.”" So if they are doing a cover, and honoring Lennon...

    Agreed. The first tweet says it's a song they've never played. The "it" in the second quote, therefore, can't mean a specific song, but has to be something like "doing a cover". We know there's a Lennon tribute. Put the pieces together and it seems likely this is a cover of a Lennon song, be it "Imagine" or something else.

    Ugg. I don't want to hear John Lennon covers at a Yes concert. I want to hear Yes songs.

    Wasn't it usually on the summer legs of the past tours when Yes would pull out covers like "Purple Haze" and "Gimme Some Loving"?
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    First concert of theirs I ever saw ended with "Gimme Some Loving" which was a blast. I enjoy when they throw in something like that.

    in 2004 Yes played their version of 'Every Little Thing' which was pretty great




    but I really don't want to hear a 2019 version of Imagine or something either. not at all

    sounds like a promoters' idea to tie in with the 'Royal' theme

    I'm kind of hoping it's Falco's, Amadeus. That's a real crowd pleaser and everyone knows the chorus.

    It does kinda sound like a promoters' idea. Play "Imagine", play "Video Killed the Radio Star" &c. But they might do something interesting with it... if this is it... and other parts of the set are certainly not populist.

    Didn’t Yes and VF both do a version of the song that spoke of “”all the lonely people.”

    Of course, that’s a McCarthey song.

    Did Yes ever do “Ticket To Ride?”

    "Eleanor Rigby"? Yes did play that in the early years, but then that wouldn't count as a song they'd never played.

    indeed Henry; I'll take the one rumored YES original masterwork in exchange for the rest of the set being solely Ringo solo material . . . .



    the way this was initially advertised had a lot of "promoter speak" within, with all of the "British legends" angles. so be it. it's a shed tour and we have to accept what we get

    From what I understand, Jon Davison joined John Lodge for “Ride My See-Saw”.

    A current livetweet of photos is going on here:

    "Rhythm of Love," "No Opportunity Necessary" and "America" are all in the set, as is, of course, "Gates". It definitely seems like Yes is stretching their comfort zone this time.

    Also looks like Steve Howe is onstage for all the original Asia album songs, and Bumblefoot is sticking to lead vocals for those.

    Considering it's a shorter set and a summer "play the hits" tour, that's actually not a bad setlist. And major props for playing a YesWest track (although not my fave by a country mile.)
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    A nice set-list, really. I'm very fond of 'Onward' so I'm always pleased to see that.

    I thought the mystery song would be 'Eleanor Rigby' as well. It was on the set-list in their earliest days but never made it into the studio.

    Well... it did make it to a studio. There's an early live-in-the-studio recording for radio known to exist. Hopefully it will be on the forthcoming archival box set.

    So, no. On the first night, White played just three songs (for two of which he was the only person on stage who had originally played on it) and shared "Gates" (Schellen on the kit, White doing additional percussion), while Schellen did seven songs. We'll see whether that changes over the tour.

    Imagine is the most overrated song of all time. Really, Yes? You're playing that Godless communist anthem? Maybe I'll pass on this tour.
