Santiago 1998 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Monumental El Teatro, Santiago, Chile; May 21, 1998. Very good to excellent soundboard (FM broadcast).

By many fans’ accounts, this show has a good (some say “terrific”) sound plus a powerful performance. Also, Heart Of The Sunrise is a standout track. As satyricon commented at, “When Yes is really ‘on’, they are a great live band! This recording catches them during one of those moments. The standout track here (IMO) is not America but Heart Of The Sunrise. It’s not often one hears the crowd singing along with Jon Anderson but this is a real treat as the Santiago crowd provides a spirited chorus to the quiet, lyrical part of the tune. A rather moving experience indeed. That and Anderson’s story of “Thai tea”(!) before And You And I make this a must have for Yes fans new and old.”

Thanks to the person who shared this show on the net in 2007. The uploader also noted: “The best show in the tour!”

  2. Very cool, I know I’m stretching these request but as long as your on a “South America” run how about Chile ‘94?

  3. I’d love to hear the 2nd half of this too. Way back in ‘72, I saw them at a stdium in NYC (a relatively small stadium), and they were great, doing everything live that they did in a recording studio. The sound system was top notch too. Most memorable.

  4. I caught them on this tour and even I have to say that this is indeed the band hitting on all cylinders,just a great set.And for the first disc at least,Heart of the Sunrise is the standout…and it being my favorite Yes song that makes this even more special.Thanks Big O !!!

  5. the only nyc show yes did in 72 was in gaelic park in the bronx. if u need the date it was on aug 16th. there are extremely high quality recordings of that show out there but i dont remember if they were sbds or fm’s or audience recordings. i know it was around the same time ten yrs after played there cuz i saw the show too and i know i saw shows there in 71 and 72. i was sure that it was 71. i know that yes played nyc in 71. i dont know if that 71 show was gaelic park or not. i cant remember. if the tya show was in 71 then the yes show i saw was absolutely 71 too. which means yes played there both years. i have the tya and yes shows from gaelic park but not in front of me.
    yes has always been one of my top favorite bands along with floyd. but sadly i havent seen them since 95.
    thanks for this recording.
    ps–this also exists on video/dvd.

  6. Looking forward to listening to the concert late this full moon weekend in Thompson. Yes has been the background music for some of epic romances of my life. This will either ease things or make them worse. Time and dark beer will tell. Best wishes and happy holidays Big O amigos.

  10. Yo vivi este concierto en la Estacion Mapocho, fue la primera vez de Yes en Chile con toda la onda “ochentera” que reinaba en ese entonces gran show, buena performance y muchos fans ensimismados.

  11. Sorry este es el segundo show de Yes en Chile en el Teatro Caupolican (ex Monumental) de la calle San Diego y fue mejor que el primero de la Estacion Mapocho debido a que vino el maestro Steve Howe en esta gira y nos dejo a todos “locos”.

    By moises ureta on Dec 22, 2011

  12. Thanks for another great Yes show.

  20. Just listening to this Yes concert again after 5 years and it’s even better than I remembered.

    With Chris Squire gone and Alan White incapacitated this summer, it’s so great to hear the band as they were - with Jon Anderson. Igor’s palying is bright, up front and “on it”.

    Thanks again, BigO! You guys ROCK!
