My Yes Tickets Through the Years!
I have seen Yes every time I have had the opportunity since 1994. I have posted my reviews and photographs of those shows here. After posting my NEARFest tickets (see here) – and seeing the positive response it got – I thought it would be fun to post my Yes tickets too, so here you go!
After going through all these tickets I would have to say that the computer printouts were a terrible idea. They are so impersonal and not particularly worthy of being a “keepsake.” Their convenience pales in comparison to the significance of receiving and keeping an actual ticket. So, needless to say, after doing it a couple of times, I am glad I abandoned the practice. The tickets below include the ticket to the 1998 Yestival (see here and here and here), as well as both of Yes’s movie theater simulcasts from the mid-aughts.
- 6/27/98: Camden Blockbuster Sony/Entertainment Center – Thirtieth Anniversary Tour (with the Alan Parsons Protect opening)
- 7/18/00: Camden Blockbuster Sony/Entertainment Center – Masterworks Tour (with Kansas opening)
- 8/3/13: Camden Tweeter Center – Three Albums Tour Part 2 – Yestival show (this show commemorated the 45th anniversary of Yes’ first show and included Roger Dean, The Musical Box, Carl Palmer ELP Legacy Band, Renaissance, Scale the Summit, Volto!, and The School of Rock)
- I cannot for the life of me remember which show this form accompanied the ticket.
