Recorded from Row Z-110 center of stage but a bit back of center of the room. Would have probably been more balanced (crowd/band) recording about 10 rows up but I'm not complaining at all since a good friend of mine invited me along for the ride and I just brought the recorder in case security was light! Speaking of security, they made a big deal about flash photos and video but didn't seem to mind audio at all. Ushers were shutting down phone recording left and right but not once did anyone even question my open audio recording.
Noteable instances from the show include the wrong introduction and false start to 'Lift Me Up' where Anderson introduced 'And You and I' and credited Trevor Rabin for writing the song. I'm not a huge Yes fan but I thought Rabin came around later after 'And You and I' was recorded, am I misunderstanding Yes history? I'll have to dig into that one. Maybe he started introducing 'Lift Me Up' as that was a Rabin era song and just messed up the song name? Anderson also says after 'South Side of the Sky' thats the first time he's sang that song in 14 years. Setlist.com has this performance of 'I Am Waiting' as the first since 1994. During 'Owner of A Lonely Heart' Rabin and Wakeman walk out into the crowd and do a visit to the soundboard for a couple of minutes during the solos.
High points for me personally were 'Heart of the Sunrise' and the second half of 'Awaken' just because Rick Wakeman's featured so heavily and the sound seemed best to me on that song.
