TOPOGRAPHIC DRAMA – LIVE ACROSS AMERICA highlights the best performances from the 2017 leg of the 12-show tour and mirrors the set list from those concerts and is released on 24th November as a double CD or Triple LP ….
Each night, Yes opened with all six songs from Drama (1980), the band’s tenth studio album, which peaked at No.2 on the U.K. album chart. Standouts include ‘Machine Messiah’, ‘Tempus Fugit’ and the album’s only single ‘Into The Lens’. After Drama, the band shifted gears for songs from two of its best-selling albums: ‘And You And I’ from Close To The Edge and ‘Heart Of The Sunrise’ from Fragile. Next, the group played the opening and closing tracks of its concept album, Tales From Topographic Oceans (1973). Howe’s exceptional guitar work on ‘The Revealing Science Of God’ and White’s propulsive drumming on ‘Ritual’ have always been regarded as ground-breaking. The album concludes with two live staples: ‘Roundabout’ and ‘Starship Trooper’.
