i am disapointed that yes picked dream theatere. didnt they already open for yes for a tour recently? there is no way i am going to see yes after witnessing a dream theatre show. i will definetly figure out when the intermission is and come to my seats then. maybe if this was 1976, and the opening bands were gentle giant and frampton, i would have come early and grooved. but ive never enjoyed dream theatre, although they are better than rush. i thought YES and TULL were going to tour this summer? i guess it fell through. too bad. you know who yes should have gotten, why didnt they ask king crimson. that would of been neat. i bet that could have actually worked. and no im not making any bill bruford references here-- i mean KCs current brufordless lineup.

I HAVE TO GO SEE THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd love to have someone to go with. Too bad Rush ain't in on this. That would be an ultimate show right there. Hell yeah!!!! But, as Meatloaf once sang, two out of three ain't bad. Acutally the band that opened for Yes two years ago was Porcupine Tree and I am ashamed at a lot of the negative reviews I saw. That band kicks ass. One of the best out there today.

I can't wait until September 3rd!!!!!!! I must see this show!!!

Just of what a nice evolution it would be to see Yes, Rush and Dream Theater. If that would be the only show I ever went to, I'd be happy.

<hr>WELCOME TO THE GRAND ILLUSION, COME ON IN AND SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING, PAY THE PRICE GET YOUR TICKETS FOR THE SHOW...

This will be interesting! Dream Theater is a band that is very supportive of Yes, and consider themselves to be influenced and inspired by the talents of Yes. Steve Howe was once invited to come on stage and play Starship Trooper with them. Their music is highly versatile. While I don't necessarily like EVERYTHING they have done (actually I haven't really HEARD everything they have done), I consider them to be very talented musicians and composers and look forward to seeing them perform! WOW!<img src=pix/icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

Dream Theater was my first pick for a double bill with Yes, I can't believe they are actually going to do it! It's brilliant. Dream Theater, like Yes, has a very loyal fan base, although younger than that of Yes, who I think will be very receptive to Yes. If Yes is looking to broaden it's fan base, I think this crowd is a good place to start. Prog-metal is the only prog genre that has gained much popularity with the younger crowd. Steve had played with Dream Theater, and Alan was spotted at their Seattle show last year. I would love to see Alan sitting with Mike Portnoy on that giagantic drum set of Portnoy's! This is going to be one helluva show! I only hope the Yes fans are not as rude and dismissive as they were to Porcupine Tree a couple of years back. I do recall that the reviews were brutal, and I know Steve Wilson has said that touring with Yes was a mistake. Porcupine Tree is one of my very favorite bands, and I, for one, was very disappointed that they were no longer on the bill with Yes by the time they got to the west coast. I mean, Yes is the best of the best, and 3 hours of Yes is 3 hours of heaven. But please, let's not hate anyone who winds up cutting into Yes time; I think that's one the reasons Yes has often been relegated to "cult-band" status.

WOW - I certainly hope I get to see them both!

Linda, it's sad that PT was not received well by the Yes fans, I love them too, and wish I had gotten to see them.

And, I've never noticed that Yes plays a shorter set when they have an opening act - I've seen them many times with one, and they always seem to play the same length show.

BTW, if you check out the DT message board, there are a lot more positive reactions and comments than negative ones, lots of Yes fans over there. DT fans are quite accustomed to DT covering and paying homage to classic masters. They will stick around to the end of the concert, too, because of the likelihood that DT will play with Yes at the end of the show. When I saw DT play with Queensryche, they ended the show with both bands playing together -- a Queensryche song, a DT song, Comfortably Numb by Floyd, and Won't Get Fooled Again by the Who. Again, I hope Yes fans will be equally receptive and give them a chance. You really have to see this band live to appreciate them.

Ditto, I never thought I would see another band in the same league
as Yes and Rush. Dream Theater came along and proved me wrong. They
are all incredibly talented musicians and fantastic composers of
great music!!

I read on the DT message board that DT performed "Heart of the Sunrise" at their last concert. THAT'S impressive!<img src=pix/icon_yes_bird.gif border=0 align=middle>

Steve Howe performed a Yes medley with DT that was very impressive. DT is supportive of Yes, and I think it's a good matchup, personally. It's sure to attract new Yes fans, and perhaps some new DT fans too!

<font color=black>I hope Yes is going to add more dates for Europe this year. Only a festival here in Holland is not enough. They can sell out the Ahoy-hall anytime.
And I'm waiting for DT's second Euro leg. 3 dates in Italy are set for July, so I hope they add some more soon.

And Porcupine Tree will tour as well after September when the new album is finished. Maybe 2 or 3 of them can arrange something? That would be cool!

But that is some festival you are having! What I line-up, wish I could go! Too bad Porcupine Tree cancelled, though.

I'd like to congratulate Mike Portnoy and the band for being included on the Yes tour. This will provide a rare opportunity for the old wave of prog to get exposure to the top of the new wave of prog. Cudos to Yes for caring more about the music than to worry about being "out-shredded" by these enrgetic youngsters. Anything that builds the Genre is good for ALL of us!

Interesting we all have our opinion on this idea.

For me, Dream Theater is a band of musically talented individuals who have never made an album worth the material it was printed on...and I've owned them all. Noise. Dream Theater is a band of instrumental genius combining to make noise. As a few have voiced, I'd wait for the intermission before joining this show. Too bad I've never heard their combined talent as decent.

Rush will be a good show. If Yes makes it to my corner of the world, they will be a good show. Dream Theater? Who cares?

Where have I heard that comment before. Hmmm... Oh ya, that's what people used to say about Yes! <img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
DT truly is carrying forward the torch! <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I tried to add to my post yesterday, and everything went wrong with my computer.

I meant to rephrase my comment "who cares?". Obviously many of you do care, so that statement is unjust on my part. Apologies.

My meaning was I'd rather an evening with Yes than an opening act.
