LIKE IT IS

Recorded live on Tuesday August 12th, 2014 at the Ikeda Theater in Mesa, AZ, Like It Is: YES At The Mesa Arts Center offers an exciting take on two amazing pieces of music which include live staples such as “Roundabout”, “Heart Of The Sunrise”, “And You and I” and “Close to the Edge”.

That evening in Mesa, Arizona was a great one. The audience was fantastic; they loved the music and really made it a very special night for us. And we were in top form. The music sounded great and we could have played all night,” says YES co-founder and bassist, Chris Squire. “ ‘Like It Is’ brings the magic and wonderful music of that evening to fans everywhere, and we’re sure they’ll enjoy listening to it as much as we did performing it.

This new live release comes as YES continues one of its most fertile musical periods in their nearly five decade history and is a perfect companion piece to the other retrospective live release, “Like It Is: YES At The Bristol Hippodrome”, which includes renditions of “The Yes Album” (1971) and “Going for the One” (1977). Formed in 1968, the band has endured for nearly five decades and remains one of the most popular live touring acts in rock’n’roll.
