Bernstein and Yes?

As promised, here is the first of two short episodes during the time I'm off on holiday. I hope you enjoy finding out a bit about ARW's fist concerts of the new leg of their tour and also about Leonard Bernstein's Yes connections! Thanks to Paul Raybould and Jeremy North!

This was the most well attended YES-ARW show I have seen for a long time. Capacity 5,800. It looked quite full. @oliasofbolton @YesMusicPodcast @YESfeaturingARW @Greek_Theatre pic.twitter.com/LWpChbMGCA

A collection from The Greek show in LA. A wonderful night was had by all. Two YES and, two ARW shows in 2018. I have celebrated #YES50 with joy and happiness. @YesMusicPodcast @YESfeaturingARW @oliasofbolton pic.twitter.com/5JRjIlCJbj

This gives you some sense of the size of The Whisky. Rick took up 2/3rds of the stage. @oliasofbolton @YesMusicPodcast @YESfeaturingARW pic.twitter.com/QxEFJAT4Ni

Tonight’s set list at The Greek. No Fragile tonight it seems They played Fragile at The Wiskey. The Greek is another great outdoor venue. @YesMusicPodcast @YESfeaturingARW pic.twitter.com/fBZwq1vPNJ

The excitement builds. Jon tells me, “lots more new music to come.” Rick says, he’s off salad for a day. Trevor has recovered from his nasty fall at The Whiskey. @YesMusicPodcast @YESfeaturingARW pic.twitter.com/vPEx3ZojK9
