HOB Review In 3: YES – At House Of Blues Myrtle Beach, August 2, 2012

By Brian M. Howle

HOB Review in 3 – YES: 1) Beginning with “Yours is No Disgrace,” their newest member – singer Jon Davison – may be the most perfect replacement vocalist I have ever heard, perfectly complimenting bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, and keyboardist Geoff Downes; 2) Steve Howe, after an amazingly beautiful acoustic guitar solo romp – “Thank you, despite all you noisy bastards!” (Inevitable drawback to concerts where alcohol is served), and; 3) With the inclusion of “America” and incredibly fresh compositions from their newest album, hands down the finest of their three performances at HOB Myrtle Beach over the last 10 years – and the added jewel of having the great Procol Harum as the opening band was an extra sweet experience.
