The myriad personnel lineups representing Yes likely will never be deemed fully acceptable to the band's hordes of purist fans, who've seen the progressive-rock icons morph from a quirkily magnificent symphonic/art-rock ensemble to a more streamlined and pop-accessible unit. Yet time marches on, and even hardcore “progressive” nerds might check the dreamy whimsy of Yes' lovely, tough-enough new album Heaven & Earth, which features bassist Chris Squire and guitarist Steve Howe from the original lineup and drummer Alan White and keyboardist Geoff Downes (from the “middle period”), along with a singer named Jon Davison who sounds remarkably like the other Jon (Anderson). Tonight it's a tribute to their own legacy, with songs from the new album along with a trove of their hits, including performances of the entire Fragile and Close to the Edge albums.
