Q. Hello,

The only live version of Yes I can find is from Toronto, 2008.

Is this the only time Yes has been played live, and if so, why?


The Oracle replies:

No. For starters there were two shows in Toronto and it was played both nights.
Yes wasn't played as often as many other songs on the Viva tour but during 2008, it actually made 15 appearances. One twice in Europe and the rest in the U.S.A & as you say, Canada.
I've always assumed the song was dropped due to the low vocal timbre - it wasn't all that easy to sing.
