Prog Rock at it’s Finest: Yes/ASIA/John Lodge/Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy Concert Review

Phenomenal concert!
Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy (with vocalist Arthur Brown). Carl is the last surviving member of Emerson, Lake, And Palmer, the drummer of Asia, and The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown.
John Lodge (co-singer/bassist for The Moody Blues).
Lots of music/musicality, not a lot of wasted time in between sets, lots of double duty (Yes and Asia are almost the same band), Carl played two sets (ELP Legacy and Asia), and amazing singing and songs.
All the musicians are extraordinary.
Just to watch Yes/ASIA guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Carl Palmer, and bassist Billy Sherwood (Yes, ASIA), were worth the trip alone.
Bumblefoot sings the ASIA songs really well.
Current Yes singer Jon Davison sings the Yes songs really well.
Seeing Arthur Brown (The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown) was a hoot.
I saw the drummer who played on John Lennon’s Imagine (Yes drummer Alan White, who only plays some of Yes’ set, they have another drummer). Yes covered Imagine at this show.
Seeing John Lodge again was cool (saw him get inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last year with The Moody Blues and perform there with them).
Keyboardist for Yes and ASIA is Geoff Downes, who is also one of The Buggles (they had the first music video on MTV, Video Killed The Radio Star, ASIA played it at this show).
Yes/ASIA/Uriah Heep artist Roger Dean was there selling artwork.
Just a great night of bands and amazing musicality.
This is what I live for people!!
Two concerts next weekend.
Stay tuned for those.
