The Voice of Yes: Jon Anderson Concert Review

Well I really got my Yes fix on this summer.
I saw current Yes in July, and Friday night of August 16, I saw the original singer of Yes, Jon Anderson!!!!
He and his fantastic band played a number of Yes songs, as well as some of Jon’s solo songs.
I was able to buy his new CD, which is only available at shows and his website (CDs currently sold out), and I got to hear a few of them at the show. Sound great!!!
Jon Anderson is another singer who has been doing this a long time and falls in the category of singers who have lost nothing in their vocal abilities.
He’s 75 and still Sounds the way he did in the 70s. Perfect!!!
I’m glad I saw him.
This was perfect timing because seeing current Yes really finally made me a fan. And seeing him a month later really took the cake.
I live for this stuff!!
