|Opera House - Buxton||25 October 2010||by Kevin Cunningham|
One of my favourite venues - it is a really beautiful looking theatre. But boy did these guys give us a show.
Lots of YES - restructured and designed in such a way it was fresh and new - Starship - Long Distance - Roundabout - Southside of the Sky - Yes from Time and a Word to 90125 and beyond.
The new stuff - well it was a recital and a half - lovely music and it is great Jon tells the story about each song so you finally get his words - even the Garden links.
His voice was etheral, crisp and healthy - Rick's playing was wonderful.
Their friendship was so obvious - one of the best shows I have seen for many years.
I fortunately was in a box above the stage and it was great to see Rick's fingers bending across the keyboard.
I recommend the new album and I cannot wait to sit down, coffee and listen (with using a night of memories). 24/23/11 was my song of the night.
