Well, I know some of DM is married, if not all the band, but, you are absolutely correct....it doesn't matter! Music is about music, not sexual preferences. Thanks for "straight"tening me up on that one, Chris2210.

So glad you all enjoyed the show!

Did Perpetual Change rock? It was my favorite in Reno and Konocti.
Did Steve play The Clap? Did Squire solo in Starship Trooper?
Did you guys like In the Presence Of? I did.
Was Jon in his trippy purple gypsy get up?
Was the limited CD available?

I didn't go, but if you really want some reviews, check out Yesworld. They have lots of reviews of each show. Sounds like most people are enjoying the shows.

Clear Lake, Concord, and Depeche Mode

Konocti was a most wonderful show! The band was on fire. Steve played The Clap and my favorite tune of the night was definitely Perpetual Change. The venue was absolutely beautiful at Clear Lake. "In and around the lake, mountains come out of the sky and stand there," were such fitting lyrics for th...

Well, it's time to take a Yes break. Now that I've seen 3 Yes shows in the last 3 weeks, I'm taking a break, at least until Magnification comes out. The day after I saw the Concord show (not as good as Konocti), I saw Depeche Mode and, accordingly, have been listening to their most excellent album, ...

Ericbliss, it's interesting that you mentioned Pink Floyd, Division Bell. Not only do I love that CD (masterfull guitar leads), but I also saw the concert, in Oakland. It was a fantastic show. I agree, it was more than a concert, it was an incredible show. The stage was the most artsy stage I have e...

Jon did mention they would have Magnification ready at some later shows Sunday night, in Reno. When, I don't know, and he didn't say. I do remember much of the crowd yelling, "Tonight!" They didn't even have shirts for sale! That's bizarre. Robin said they had been in Reno since the 4th of July. So,...

Thank you Chris2210. It's simply an honor to contribute in this forum. In reply to playing newer material, they do cover a few songs from their new album every tour with the exception of last year's masterworks which didn't follow a new release, unless you count The Ladder for which they had already...

No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed is another great tune that should have been added. They should have started with this tune. The beginning symphony part would have been a great way to open the show and acknowledge the orchestra. But, again, Howe wasn't a part of this.

Hmmm, one of the most memorable shows I ever, ever experienced wasn't Page and Plant in Sacramento (94' I think). That was a great show, however. The sound and mixing blew me away. I had never heard Zeppelin with such a progressive approach. They had one song that lasted nearly half an hour with oth...

Yes, I figured that might be on someone's mind. I, too, was curious to see how many people would be at the show. First of all, you must understand that there was considerable competition in Reno, "The Biggest Little City in the World." Counting Crows was playing at an outdoor venue just down the roa...

Now that I think back, Jon introduced every song. There was no blending. "Don't Go" had a newer sound ala "Dangerous" or "It Can Happen," with a tempo liking to "Roundabout." There were melodic changes, but not a lot of tempo changes. The lyrics, especially in the chorus, reminded me of newer approa...

Hi Tiki. Welcome to this really cool forum. I hope you stop by and chat some more. I, too, would like to have hear Time And A Word. Maybe they'll change their setlist from show to show. Bands usually do, to some extent at least. However, since they are playing with an orchestra, which, btw doesn't r...

The Reno Show Was Excellent

The sound was spectacular. Jon's voice was perfect but did seem to get lost near the end of the show. It's so impressive how healthy his voice is, still. The sound was so clear and tight. The orchestra was wonderful. Not overbearing or intrusive, but perfectly fitting. The symphony filled the music ...
