Two Yes Classics Performed in Entirety in Concert Film
As we continue to mourn the loss of Yes bassist Chris Squire, we can also take delight in one of his latter-day performances with the band he founded in the late 1960s.
When the legendary progressive rock group played in Mesa, Arizona on Aug. 12, 2014, Squire, — who died June 27, 2015 of acute erythroid leukemia — was the only founding member still part of the band as it played two of its best-loved albums, Close to the Edge and Fragile, in their entirety in one night. That show, performed at the Mesa Arts Center, is now available on Blu-ray as Like It Is — Live at the Mesa Arts Center.
Here’s a bit of what it looked like. Enjoy “South Side of the Sky”:
Like It Is – Live at the Mesa Arts Center is available on Blu-ray, 2 CD/DVD set, vinyl (Aug. 21) and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).

That should be “Five Percent FOR Nothing”
Chris’s playing ranged from aggressive,driving to beautifully melodic and peaceful and everything in between…..such a giant. R.I.P. Chris….
This was excellent and the guy playing acoustic guitar is excellent.
I could swear I see a silver quarter in Chris’s fingers he uses as a pick , he will be dearly missed.
Jeff ,should be 5% for nothing , what does this mean.
I love Chris, but that’s not Yes
