It's interesting that Yes chose to perform their album Drama in it's entirety rather than other albums like Close To The Edge, Fragile, Relayer etc.. Drama is a very good under-rated album mind you but it wouldn't be an obvious choice to fans. Trevor Horn did the vocals on that one rather than Jon Anderson so is Jon now back with Yes full time? Trevor Horn has been known over the years more as a producer the founder lead singer of The Buggles. This album also saw the departure of one of best rock keyboard players ever, Rick Wakeman.

I saw Jon's solo tour in early 80's I think. This was at Roy Thompson hall- man can that guy belt a tune.

I guess we will have to wait for the albums release to see the credits.
Rick Wakeman was also in the lilineup at Massey Hall as was Trevor Rabin.

They did Close to the Edge around 4 years ago when squire was still in the fold. And pretty sure they did Fragile the following tour (don't remember if Squire was still there).

third paragraph in the link:
"The lineup features Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes and Jon Davison, with Billy Sherwood replacing late bassist Chris Squire and Jay Schellen playing drums on some recordings."

Wakeman and Anderson have not played with them for over 10 years. Except at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when Geddy Lee played bass.In actuality, there are now 2 Yes bands.The one with Steve Howe and Alan White, and the other with Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman and Trevor Rabin. They are called Yes featuring JA,RW and TR.

I believe the late Chris Squire may have owned the name so there may be some legal stuff going on.It will be interesting to see where this all goes.
