Album Review: "The Royal Affair Tour – Live From Las Vegas" by YES (10/10)

Label: BMG Records

Producer: Billy Sherwood

July 2019 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas proved to be a memorable night as this album documents a band that needs no introduction to classic rock fans. Veteran members Steve Howe, Alan White and Geoff Downes are at the top of their game. Vocalist Jon Davison and long-time bassist Billy Sherwood further capture the group’s enduring legacy and prog status. Rarities like Paul Simon’s “America” and John Lennon’s “Imagine” are remarkable. And the rhythmic density of tracks like “Roundabout” and “Going for the One” stand out as well.
