Comments: I love The Egg! Some may be familiar with some of my other recordings, back in 2007 I made one of the best audience recordings I have ever heard at this venue. Unfortunately, that band is no longer allowed on the sharing sites. You can imagine how psyched I was Yes was playing this great venue. It's small, it holds 982 people I think. It was probably only about 90% filled. But the acoustics are fantastic. I was sitting in the sweet spot, just a few seats over from where I was back in 2007. This was the second show of the tour, and the first full length show. I was a bit worried after reading the reviews from the first show, but I was pleasantly surprised. This was a good performance, with only a couple of early tour miscues. (The middle of South Side...I thought Geoff did a great job with it, but Alan seemed to be the one having the trouble, and of course Five Percent). There's also a buzzing noise on some of the keyboard sections of Heart Of The Sunrise, but that was present in the theater, and not an artifact of the recording. I was somewhat surprised at the inclusion of the two new songs. Not so much that they played new material, more about the song selection. They released "Believe Again" as a single, and it's available to stream on Spotify, so that's one a lot of fans may have heard, but they picked two other songs instead. They seemed to go over well, and they were well played.

The recording came out great I think. But that's what I expected at this venue. I was using a new battery box this evening, after having some trouble with my old one the last time out. It passed the test pretty well I think. This was a fun show, and this is a nice document of the evening.

Artwork is included in the torrent. The photos are from the actual show.

Please share this recording in unaltered lossless quality. If you need to remaster, or something, let me know, and I can provide the undedited raw master (without EQ/volume tweaks) for you to use.
