Anderson Rabin Wakeman, live in Massachusetts
Venue: Wang Theatre, Massachusetts
The former Yes men reunite for an evening of classic hits
The last time Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman shared a stage together – Yes’ Union tour – pre-dates the internet era. Since then, Yes have gone through more evolutions than _Doctor Who_. It’s fitting, then, that the trio of Yes alumni open the show with Perpetual Change.
When Anderson sings the first few words, the warm reception dispels any lingering chills from the cool October night outside. Attired in a suit jacket and T-shirt – a welcome change from yesteryear’s pantsuits adorned with epaulettes – Anderson looks younger than 72. Even more impressively, his voice sounds impossibly youthful.
