Legendary progressive rock band Yes will release a brand new live recording this fall.

Songs From Tsongas The 35th Anniversary Concert will be released via Eagle Rock Entertainment Tuesday, September 23rd. The recording will be released in a variety of presentations including: Blu-ray, double-disc DVD, triple-disc CD, and digital formats. This upcoming recording is a truly special recording for the band’s fans. That is because the special edition release contains not one but two concerts. Both shows were recorded during the band’s 35th Anniversary tour in 2004. The tour in question was the last to feature Yes’ classic lineup of Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman, and Alan White. The secondary concert included features seventy minutes of never-before-released footage from Lugano.

The concert’s DVD presentation contains the band’s entire concert from the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, MA. Previously this concert had been spread across two discs. The career-spanning performance includes an extensive acoustic set which encompasses the concert’s eleventh through eighteenth songs. It also includes some songs that the band had very rarely performed live in previous live engagements. The concert is also presented in its entirety in its triple-disc CD format.

The bonus second disc in the DVD presentation takes audiences to the band’s performance at Estival in Lugano, Switzerland. The crowd in attendance proved that not even the rain would stop it from seeing Yes perform as audiences will see for themselves. The band’s performance at this venue includes full on rock versions of the acoustic songs from the Tsongas Arena show as well as an acoustic stage. As an added bonus, fans area also treated to a performance of the song ‘Ritual,’ which was recorded during the band’s performance at the Tsongas Arena and an interview with legendary designer and Yes collaborator Roger Dean. Dean was the man responsible for creating the stage for Yes’ concerts on its 35th Anniversary tour.
