Steve Howe live in Manchester - review
Venue: Band On The Wall, Manchester
Yes' guitar maestro gives a solo performance in Manchester
Surprisingly, the first track of the night is a cover – Mason Williams’ Classical Gas, which Howe has been playing live for some time. This is followed by an arrangement of The Ancient (Giants Under The Sun) from Tales From Topographic Oceans, which gets the audience fully onside, several Yes-shirted fans cheering its introduction. J’s Theme is also an early treat, emphasising just how special it is to be able to hear some of the stories behind the iconic music from a lifer like Howe.
