It's cool to note that this was my first concert and, well, I was very impressed. Asia opened, playing their songs as well as songs from band members' past (i.e. John Wetton was in King Crimson, so they played The Court of the Crimson King). Carl Palmer was a *censor* beast on drums, and after listening to him play a drum solo, I think he became my most favorite drummer. Also, there was a part at the end of Heat of the Moment where Geoff Downes let the crowd sing. Then, Asia left the stage.

After a brief intermission, Yes came on. Here is what the set was (From what I can remember):

1. Siberian Khatru
2. I've Seen All Good People
3. Tempus Fugit
4. Astral Traveller/Alan White drum solo
5. And You and I
6. Steve Howe acoustic solo
7. Owner of a Lonely Heart
8. Machine Messiah
9. Roundabout
10. Heart of the Sunrise

Then, they came back on for an encore and did Starship Trooper.

Overall, I was impressed. Benoit David is as good a singer as Jon Anderson. He nailed all of those high notes perfectly. Oliver Wakeman really follows in the footsteps of his father, Rick. He was just that amazing. Alan White did a great job on the drums, what, with all the time signature changes. Chris Squire was also sounded great, and Steve Howe, playing for both Asia and Yes, did a very good job, both on the acoustic and electric guitars. The set design, although simple, was cool. I dunno how they managed to suspend those warped canvases, but the lighting was spectacular.

I loved it, and I look forward to the next concert I go to.

Yes without Jon, not Yes

That's cool though. Hopefully I'll be able to see them when Jon comes back.
