The celebrated English band will rock out on Blu-ray in September. You can pre-order the disc here.
In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock is preparing 'Yes: Songs from Tsongas' for Blu-ray on September 23.
This Special Edition of 'Songs From Tsongas' contains two different concerts 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. Disc One contains the whole of the concert from the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Massachusetts, previously spread across two discs. This epic show features a brand new stage set by legendary designer and Yes collaborator Roger Dean and the setlist 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!
Specs and supplements have not been detailed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
