Any idea whether or not Yes ever plays Leave It?

I dont think they play it too often anymore. Pretty solid setlist from YES on this tour for sure.

Solid set from Yes. It'd be cool to go, but I'm not pissed I have to miss it.

Saw this show last Tuesday up at Bethel Woods NY (site if the orignal festival)
My girlfriends 17 year old won wanted us to take him and a friend...why not
Being a metal head it was funny wearing a Watain shirt around the concert...awesome facility and outdoor covered pavillion with a lawn seating area.....awesome manicured grounds.

YES was pretty good even though their "Jon Anderson" sound a like was cracking on some of the notes.....generally boring performance IMO

STYX however...FREAKIN ROCKED!!! Just a strong performance from beginning to end and a pretty balanced setlist. Their "Dennis DeYoung" sound a like was spot on and played a mean keyboard

I have seen Styx 4 times now, and man they kill it every time. The whole band is really talented, much better without DeYoung imo.

Leave It?! Oh man, they only played that song on the 90125 Tour back in 84-85! It would be great if they played it again but they need the great Trevor Rabin back in the band!!

Saw this tour bout a week and a half ago. Styx have been pretty good both times I've seen them, but Yes were absolutely mindblowing imo.

1 week before this show on Monday the 11th.

Unless you were trying to imply that Styx is better than Yes which is just nonsense. ;)

I haven't seen either of them live in a while but I've seen some recent concert videos of the two and would definitely say that Tommy and JY and Styx rocking quite well these days, whereas Yes sounded boring. I changed the channel after a song or two.. it was really unwatchable for me.
