On February 11, 2017, Yes came off their Cruise to the Edge so that they could play a landlocked set at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida. The band worked through 13 cuts, including selections from Drama, The Yes Album and Tales From Topographic Oceans. Yes even played a little Asia to close out the second encore.
CL contributor Gabe Echazabal described the set like this:
But, alas, as the five performers who wasted no time settling into their respective spots and getting things off to a rousing start proved, these guys were here to prove a point. Fresh from their annual “Cruise to the Edge” rock boat excursion, one might have wondered how sturdy the band might have been and if they’d recovered from their journey at sea. But the answer instantly came when, without as much of an introduction or a greeting, they dove right into “Machine Messiah,” the opening track from the band’s 1980 album Drama. As one of the two featured albums on this trek, the latest installment of the band’s ongoing “Album Series” tours, this somewhat overlooked album was selected to be spotlighted.
