Jon Anderson Guitar, piano, ukelele,
         unidentified string instrument
         with a very narrow neck (on
         "Flight of the Moorglade"           

what a fun show. Jon looked great and sounded
just fine He's still the old Jon, radiating
good vibes from on stage and the crowd
just sent it straight back to him.(It's fair
to say most of us were "a certain age" 
He played songs from most of his back
catalogue including a few I'd
forgotten/blocked out along the way  :>)

There were a few gremlins along the way,
mostly a loose guitar lead which caused a lot
of buzzing at times.The guitar trouble seemed
to start after a battery change to his guitar
during "Starship Trooper" (hence the split in
track).The buzzing starts just into "Long
Distance Runaround" Everything was fixed
during the piano medley.

The bouncers were moving all over the venue
tonight which I've never seen before at
the factory. A girl directly in front of me
was busted by security for (presumably)
taping....there was very little mobile phone
recording going on (thankfully,fed up with
screens shining everywhere around grumble
grumble, bah humbug)

Jon did a great job reinterpreting his
classic songs although sometimes you found
yourself thinking "where's the big guitar/
keyboard riff? (say like on "Science of God"
or "Soon") but maybe that was just me  LOL
