Progeny: 7 Shows from '72

You may be having difficulty accessing the main news page because of the high demand for it. That high demand is because of the breaking news about the Close to the Edge tour live release. I repeat details here:

Originally trailed as a blurry photo on Yes's official Facebook account, news grew of a forthcoming archival live release featuring a line-up of Anderson, Squire, Howe, White and Wakeman, and featuring new art by Roger Dean. This is Progeny: Seven Shows from Seventy-Two (Rhino), a 14-disc box, with 7 new paintings by Dean. One of the concerts included is the 31 Oct Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto performance on the Close to the Edge tour; set: "Intro: Firebird Suite", "Siberian Khatru", "I've Seen All Good People", "Mood for a Day", "Clap", "And You and I", "Heart of the Sunrise", "Close to the Edge", Wakeman solo, "Roundabout", "Yours is No Disgrace". According to Doug Curran on Facebook, all 7 shows are complete and from the Close to the Edge tour, with 1 Nov Ottawa (same set list) being another of the shows included. As for the other dates, speculation turns to 4 Nov Columbus, OH, 11 Nov Durham, NC and 14 Nov Atlanta, GA that are also believed to have been recorded (two of those may possibly be the sources of parts of Yessongs).
It appears that further archival live releases from other tours may be planned.
