Jon was in excellent voice. He was comfortable, charming and fallible (forgetting some chords here and there). It was a real treat to hear so many songs, so many classic songs of my musical awakening, as they sounded when originally composed before they were further refined and developed by the band. The process that Jon referred to as [the sausage] making of 'YES music'.
The 700 seats in the McGuire theatre provided a superb acoustic environment and an intimate and comfortable place for an artist and 600 fans.
He played for over 90 minutes and told some 'wonderous stories'.
Jon Anderson is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock as the lead vocalist and creative force behind Yes. Anderson was the author and a major creative influence behind the series of epics produced by Yes and his role in creating such complex pieces as Close to the Edge, Awaken, and especially The Gates of Delirium, which was central to the band’s success. Additionally, Anderson co-authored the group’s biggest hits, including I’ve Seen All Good People, Roundabout, and Owner Of A Lonely Heart. The accomplished solo artist and composer Jon Anderson brings his solo show to the Guthrie which will include many classic songs from all across the Yes songbook and his own eclectic solo work.
