YES and Eagle Rock Entertainment are proud to announce, “Songs From Tsongas – The 35th Anniversary Concert – Special Edition” DVD. Read all about and register to win a copy right here!
This Special Edition of “Songs From Tsongas” contains a concert from YES’ 35th Anniversary Tour in 2004, the last tour by the band to feature the classic line-up of Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman and Alan White. The DVD also contains a second live show. “Live In Lugano”.
Disc One of the DVD contains the whole of the concert from the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Massachusetts, previously spread across two discs. This epic show features tracks from across the band’s career including an extensive acoustic section (tracks 11 – 18) and some tracks that have rarely been performed live.
Disc Two contains 70 minutes of highlights from a very different concert on the same tour filmed at Estival in Lugano, Switzerland. This outdoor concert sees a stripped down stage and full on rock versions of the acoustic tracks from Tsongas whilst the crowd wield a multitude of umbrellas against the pouring rain, which is clearly not preventing them having a great time!
As Bonus Features, they’ve included another track, “Ritual”, also filmed at the Tsongas Arena, and an insightful interview with legendary designer and Yes collaborator Roger Dean who created the brand new stage set for the shows.
This release offers a fantastic setlist of favourites and rarities including ‘Going For The One’, ‘Roundabout’, ‘Owner Of A Lonely Heart’, ‘And You And I’, ‘Starship Trooper’, ‘Wonderous Stories’, ‘I’ve Seen All Good People’, ‘Yours Is No Disgrace’, ‘Ritual’, ‘Turn Of The Century’ and many more, captured here in all their glory.
