YESTIVAL made its way through to San Francisco with a much needed stop at the legendary Warfield.  The show featured YES performing one song from the first 10 YES albums. The show takes you through a spectacular walk through time of YES history, allowing you to enjoy the transformation and progression of YES over the years.

The show kicked off with Survival and then to Time and a Word. Die hard YES fans were in awe from the first note and the crowd erupted in cheer with each track through the night. You remained mesmerized by Steve Howe’s playing and you can see how he is exactly where he is supposed to be, on that stage performing the songs that were the soundtrack to our lives.

This tour also featured Steve Howe’s son, Dylan Howe playing alongside long time drummer Alan White. The twin drum powerhouse is reminiscent of Bill Bruford and Alan White from the Union Tour in the 90’s.  The sound was powerful and filled the venue, inviting the crowd to feel every beat.

The encore which included Roundabout and Starship Trooper were stellar and they performed with the same feverish energy as they began. Their was no wavering of adrenaline from these musicians and you couldn’t help but anticipate the next time you would be able to see them live.
