"Re-creating Tour"



"Re-creating Tour"

Postby SteveHoweFan » Sat Mar 20, 2010 12:25 pm

Yes with Peter Frampton this summer - the ad said they were "recreating" the tour they did back in 1976. I have searched and can find no explanation for this....I did get tickets to the Philly show, but since it's the first in that line up I won't know before hand what they're doing. I'm wondering if Yes really intends to recreate that tour wiht that set list? I can only dream that could be true......Anybody have any info on this?

Well, looking on http://www.forgottenyesterdays.com at the Solos Tour (1976), it appears that Yes DID do a few dates with Peter Frampton opening, so I'm guessing that's what they're going to "recreate". I'd be REAL surprised if they did the same setlist that they did in 1976.

Yeah 'cos wasn't that the solo album tour? So they would have played random solo tracks, not something whihc is really appropiate now.

I think it will be recreated in spirit only. To do a full re-creation, they'll have to bring back Jon Anderson, Patrick Moraz and Peter Frampton's hair.

Watch out for the virus/malware warnings that pop up when browsing certain bits of Forgotten Yesterdays. I was warned that it scanned my Home/C: D: and E: drives [in spite of the fact I clicked cancel and tried to close the window]. It detected a large number of Windows security issues with my system. Which was quite surprising. I use a Mac.
I used to be agnostic. These days I'm not so sure.

I've had my virus software here at work close Internet Explorer while browsing Forgotten Yesterdays, although it didn't do it THIS time. Sounds like they've got some problems there.

I saw the 76 tour and yeah, they would need Moraz and Anderson to do it justice. The stage setup was very cool with the "bug" or whatever it was behind Alan that had wings flapping . And of course the light show was amazing.
I'd be happy if they simply re-vamped the set list to include "new" material! Hey what a concept....... and include To Be Over just for old times sake!

Peter Frampton is the guy that uses that tube-like thing on his guitar right? -gives it a sort of aquatic wah-wah tone. Joe Walsh uses that too, and Pink Floyd occassionally. But was it Frampton who invented it?

Are you referring to a "speak box?" Lot's of folks have used that over the years but Frampton did it quite well, as did Jeff Beck.

I think you mean 'talk-box', though more or less it means the same thing.

Oh yeah thats the thing, such a cool device!

And Frampton's is the picture in that wiki article. He seems to be the most associated with it.

It seemed far more commonly in use in the 70s - Focus used it [if I'm not mistaken] wonderfully on the eponymous Mother Focus - probably Ackerman, but I've also seen Van Leer use a similar tube-device live, so you never know.

Someone mentioned Jeff Beck above - he used it on "Blow By Blow" on the tune "She's A Woman".

It was some old Steel player that invented it. Can't think of his name, but that's what I was always led to believe.
Ben Franklin discovered it, but it took Bob Moog to find it's proper use.

Didn't they call it a Voice Vox back in the 70's. ??

Hi, QMan!

Good to see you out here!

I did a little searching on this question, and found this tidbit on Wikipedia.

"While playing with Humble Pie, Frampton also did session recording with other artists, including: Harry Nilsson, Jim Price, Jerry Lee Lewis, as well as George Harrison's solo All Things Must Pass, in 1970, and John Entwistle's Whistle Rymes, in 1972.[5] During the Harrison session he was introduced to the 'talk box' that has become his trademark guitar sound.[10][11][12]"

And here's the link to the "talk box" - it even has a picture of the one Frampton used!

Yeah, I remember when PF did his guitar thing. Amongst my friends and school buddies it was so huge it overlapped anything YES had to offer at the time. Amazing how a simple thing like that caught everyone's attention to such an extreme.
After listening to PF's last CD I really don't have much more to say about the guy.
BUT MY FREAKING GOODNESS, YES IS PLAYING IT'S FIRST SUMMER DATE TONIGHT AS I'M WRITING THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YEEEEEEEEEEHAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't wait to see them tomorrow in Tampa! God damn it, I'm going out of my mind just thinking about it!!!!!!
And if it turns out they're playing the same setlist they did in 1976, or anywhere near it, I'm afraid an ambualnce will have to be called to take me home after the show.
But whatever YES does I'll always be there for them in the same way they've always been there for me, "and breathe hope and chase and love for you and you and you"!

YES IS PLAYING TONIGHT IN TAMPA. OH, MY GOD, THE SETLIST, THE SETLIST, THE SETLIST IS AWESOME. IT'S OUT OF THIS WORLD. OH, MY FREAKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!
OH, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T.... Ooops. I just came all over myself.
Oh, well, I'm sure it's going to be just as good tonight.....

Lol, yes I was sleeping... In a Rest Area between Tampa and Orlando. I'm finally home, and all I can say is that it's clear to me music has a healing power. Never mind how it heals me, what's amazing it's how it heals the folks playing the music.
For the life of me, I can't see a difference between SH, CS and AW now from how they played back in the 70's. It's not only the energy level that got my attention but how faithful they were to the original pieces: No short cuts were taken.
Although I have to say that the Yessongs version of PC still drives me out of mind like no other version I've ever heard.
But, goodness, CTTE... wow. Steve Howe got a hold of that song and didn't let go of it for a second. I was having so much fun, and jumping and shaking my head, and getting my whole body involved the guy next to me asked me if I was OK.
For crying out loud, of course I'm OK. Please people if you see someone enjoy themselves don't interrupt them just to see if they're OK, even if it looks as if they're having a seizure!
And a seizure I had with every song they played.
YES' power, spirit, energy and commitment went well beyond my expections and, for that, I thank you kindly.

Well, like I said CTTE but just about every song. Whatever they played I was either playing air guitar or, something I haven't heard mentioned before, air keyboard!

For me it was AYAI, especially the beginning of it when SH did it exactly as the studio version and he was looking at the audience with the biggest smile. Oh, my, that was awesome!

Yeah, yeah, that was awesome, indeed. The entire piece. When listening to it I remember how Jon Anderson introduced the song at this concert in KY, and he went something like this, "The next song, oh, the next song, is my all time favorite YES song. And I'll never forget how when we came up with it we smoked a joint about this big!" JA held his hands about a foot apart and everyone in the audience had the biggest laugh!!
