Story and Photos by Tom Collins

Philadelphia has long had a love affair with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, the classic prog rock band YES. Celebrating their 50th Anniversary, they wanted to celebrate properly with 2 big shows and a YES Fanfest at Live Nation's hot venue, The Fillmore! In all reality, it would take at least a weeks worth of concerts by the band to cover all of their incredible songs from such a long career! Given they had 2 days to get the job done, YES brought out all the stops for the ultimate YES experience! Lead by classic members of the band, Steve Howe and Alan White were joined by Geoff Downes, Billy Sheerwood and Jon Davison on vocals. There is of course a second touring version of YES with ARW, Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman. They all last performed together for their Hall of Fame induction but have resumed their separate tours afterwards. Both are equally fantastic and most importantly, are keeping the YES legacy alive for their loyal fans.

  1. Just an FYI, Steve Howe is not a founding member of Yes. He replaced founding member Peter Banks in 1970. And Trevor Horn plays bass, not keyboards.
